  1. Oh my, these are all so very true 🙂 Except dog biscuit crumbs instead of bread crumbs, mostly because I don’t do a lot of cooking. Still may wind up happening though!

  2. We actually made decisions on what 5th wheel RV and big dually truck to buy, over 100,000$ worth of decision, on how our furbabies could ride in the truck + how their crates would fit in the RV! Guess we are dog lovers; ain’t it grand!

  3. You call the dog-sitter 15 minutes after leaving the check that the dog is okay. Did that yesterday. *grin*

  4. You left one off – tasting dog treats. I bought these carob covered Whopper-like dog treats that had nothing but human-grade ingredients and they looked so good that I ate some. They were really delicious (my dog enjoyed them too). :-0

  5. *You think BSL is Blind & Stupid legislation. *You can meet a stranger & within minutes bond within over your love of dogs When as soon as you wake you know you have to let the dog out. *You move home & check the garden is big enough for your dog to have play space. *You will fight tooth & nail to save a dog in every shaggy dog story that comes your way
