Hello to all Papillon folk!
At last some milder weather for most of us. However, to say its been rather soggy in the south would be an understatement. Most paps hate going out in the wet and I keep getting that ‘do you seriously except us to go out there’ look.

If I Didn’t Have A Dog, author not known.
If I didn’t have a dog I could walk around the back yard barefoot without worry. My house could be carpeted instead of tiled. My clothing, furniture and other belongings would be free of hair.
When the doorbell rings, my home wouldn’t sound like a kennel. I could sit on the couch or lie in my bed the way I want to, without taking into consideration how much space she needs to be comfortable. I would not have strange presents under the Christmas tree like bones, stuffed animals, toys and treats…nor would I have to explain why I wrap them.
I would have no guilt about going on holiday. I would not be on a first name basis with three veterinarians, as I put their kids through college. The most used words in my vocabulary would not be sit, stay, down, come, go pee pee.
My house would not be cordoned off into zones with baby gates and barriers. My pockets would not contain things like poop bags, treats, and an extra lead. My house wouldn’t look like a daycare center with toys strewn everywhere. I would not have to spell out the words, BALL, Treat, bye-bye, walk.
If I didn’t have a dog…. how truly empty my life would be.
