Friday is story day on this blog – I find them all over – and in keeping with my dog and listening theme this week – here is something I found on the web – author unknown – and it’s called: A Dog’s Plea – this time asking us as dog owners to listen…

Enjoy and please take heed~

A Dog’s Plea

Treat me kindly, my beloved friend for no heart in all this world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me.

Do not break my spirit with a stick for though I should lick your hand between blows, your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the things you would have me learn.

Speak to me often, for your voice is the world’s sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail, when your footsteps fall upon my waiting ear.

Please take me inside when it is cold and wet for I am a domesticated animal, no longer accustomed to bitter elements.

I ask no greater glory than to have the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth.

Keep my pan filled with water for I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst.

Feed me clean food that I  may stay well to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side, and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life should your life be in danger.

And my friend, when I am old and no longer enjoy good health and sight, do not make heroic efforts to keep me going. I am not having fun.

Please see that my trusting life is taken gently.

I shall leave this earth knowing with the last breath I draw that my fate was always safest in your hands.

Now for your Friday Funny! – Again thanking the world wide web for today’s selection~


On the first day of school,

The children brought gifts for their teacher.

The florist’s son brought

The teacher a bouquet of flowers.

The candy-store owner’s daughter

Gave the teacher a pretty box of candy.

Then the liquor-store owner’s son

Brought up a big, heavy box.

The teacher lifted it up

And noticed that it was leaking a little bit.

She touched a drop of the liquid

With her finger and tasted it.

“Is it wine?” she guessed.

“No,” the boy replied.

She tasted another drop..

And asked, ” Champagne ?”

“No,” said the little boy…

“It’s a puppy!”


Remember – you create your day by the way you think! Make it Magnificent!

Blessings, Shawna
