Top Ten Reasons You Need a Dog (W. Bruce Cameron)

10. Without a dog, you’ll have to hump the neighbor’s leg yourself.

9. Without a dog, you won’t have anyone to dig up your carefully planted flowers.

8. Someone has to bark when the doorbell rings. Who’s going to do it, you?

7. It’s so much more enjoyable to eat with someone staring at you, wondering when you’re going to drop a piece of food on the floor.

6. Wouldn’t it be nice to take a car ride to the grocery store with someone who thinks it’s the most fun in the world?

5. Tell your dog you invented bacon. He’ll take it at your word.

4. Without you even asking, your dog will make sure none of your tennis balls are too dry.

3. Your dog will always remind you when you forgot to put the lid on the garbage can.

2. Your dog will always be happy when you walk back in the door. Can you say that about anyone else in your life?

1. No matter what you do, what mistakes you make, what failures you have, your dog will think you are the best. No one else in the world will ever believe in you like your dog.

  1. This is cute! I can't wait to get back to my own dogs as soon as I finish out this semester. Only one more week!!

  2. So Cute!!!! I love dogs, but live with a very entitled cat...who is right now trying to sit on my keyboard so I can only pay attention to him and his fluffy butt.

    Oh animals, why do we love thee....????


  3. I definitely want to read all Camerons animal books. "A Dogs Purpose' sounds very touching and I get the feeling the dog is quite emotionally deep for a mutt. I believe you have to have dogs in your life, no human support can take the place of the emotional support a dog gives you.
    I got to know a bit more about Cameron on the 'The Book Report' by Elaine Charles where Cameron's personality comes out. Cameron is an open lovable guy who's wife has just produced the screenplay for his first movie about his book 'A Dogs Purpose'. This movie is a must see for all Cameron book lovers. The movie is comming out in May 2012.
