Dogs Make Me Smile

Dogs Make Me Smile



I am the​ owner of​ two miniature dachshunds who share my house and home. Many dog owners would rephrase that and instead call me the​ human who shares the​ house with the​ dogs. Dogs are indeed wonderful creatures.

Recent experiences have made me reflect upon and notice things about dogs and their presence in​ my life. I grew up with dogs so was taught at​ a​ young age to​ appreciate and treat animals with loving care. I recall clearly watching our pet Boston Terrier comfort my little brother who sat on​ the​ floor crying about something.

My friend came over to​ walk the​ dogs today and as​ she stood on​ the​ doorstep Peanut,​ my 12 pound dachshund stood up to​ lick her face. I belong to​ a​ PLR site for dog articles and there have been several written on​ this topic - all as​ if​ this was a​ bad thing. This got me thinking…..

Both dogs lick my face when I’m in​ bed and I call this ”kisses”. Peanut will go so far as​ to​ stand on​ my chest with all four paws so he can give my full face a​ wash including my eyes. This usually only happens every couple weeks yet I endure because he’s my dog. Bark goes after my husband more because the​ only time he gets to​ lick his face is​ in​ bed whereas I’ll sit with them during the​ day.

My dogs also jump up on​ me when I walk in​ the​ door and will do this with others they know. Again,​ the​ articles say this is​ bad and that you​ should train your dog to​ quietly accept a​ short pat on​ the​ head as​ a​ way of​ greeting. When my two dogs have been apart for as​ little as​ ten minutes they greet each other very enthusiastically. Why shouldn’t they greet me and my friends in​ the​ same fashion.

I’ve decided that regardless of​ what the​ articles may say,​ I’m all for having my dachshunds jump up and lick my face. First of​ all,​ they’re just being dogs and second of​ all they are my friends and they don’t know any other way of​ saying hello. I figure if​ they can make me smile and laugh it​ can’t be all bad!
