If you can start the day without caffeine
or Xanax,

If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and
boring people with your troubles,

If you can understand when loved ones
are too busy to give you time,

If you can overlook when people take things
out on you when, through no fault of yours,
something goes wrong,

If you can take criticism and blame
without resentment,

If you can face the world without lies and deceit,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without liquor,

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

If you can do all these things,

Then you are probably a dog.

  1. Funny and so true, so true! It reminds me of a book I used to have called "Are You As Happy As Your Dog" (Alan Cohen).

    I envy my dog, I really do! It's a dog's life...I wish!
