Dogs: Best Friends? Heck yea:-)

A golden retriever named Boomer walked multiple miles to area where his former owner was last seen.

A dog found Thursday at the site of the deadly Washington landslide may have actually ended up there on purpose.

The golden retriever, Boomer, was treated for injuries to his leg and hip, but the dog didn’t get hurt in the natural disaster.

Dog found alive at Washington landslide site may have been searching for previous owner

According to a report from King 5, Boomer walked three miles to get to the landslide, the area where his former owner was last seen.

The loyal pooch is now cared for by the former owner’s sister. She confirmed to King 5 that her brother is still missing.

Despite the fact that human beings are animals too, their instincts and innate animal-like compassion and wisdom are often no where to be found.

Admittedly, man possesses a large and complex brain function. For all the good it does it him, at times..whoop-de-doo.
Why is it that some animals are so much more loving and genuine than human animals?

It’s because they are simple.

They have well developed emotional or limbic systems.

People have become so infatuated with their brains and ability to reason that many have allowed their intuitive and emotional functions to fade far away.

Humans, forget how to honor their feelings and their intuitive awareness. They worship “the mind” and believe in the overrated fallacy that what we think is reality.

Dogs, on the other hand, remain innocent, sweet, patient, and non-judgemental.

They continue to love you, no matter how nasty you become.
They can still draw out the little inner child within you, even when you do get that nasty.
And you play with them. You get down on all fours…and ………….play.

But, but but..Man has such a huge brain.
Uh huh.
Dogs don’t read mean spirited comments on blogs and then proceed to dignify them with commentary.

We walk down the streets, see one another but act like we don’t notice a thing.
We try “to keep it together”, be cool and act like we humans are self-contained islands.
We spend the better part of our lives hiding our true feelings.

Think you have nothing to learn from a lil doggie?
Think again. (Now, there’s a good way to put that mind to use )doganiee.gif

Dogs spend their time wagging their tails, wiggling all over or barking like mad.
They explore, sniff, race to the door to greet you and make their feelings known. dog77ani.gif

Do you ever wonder what humans would be like if they suddenly allowed their real feelings out?


In memory of Ashley.
I miss you every single day..still.

    Bless Boomers heart. Dogs are way smarter than we give them credit. They love us unconditionally too. Our Little Bit is most precious to us. we consider what’s good for her before we even think about ourselves.

    I’m sorry for the loss of Ashley. They are so precious to us and the worm their way into our hearts and then live there forever.

    Have a fabulous weekend honey. Super big healing hugs my friend. :)

    The last two years of Sam’s life were not good for us or him. Sam was supposed to be a miniature Dachsund, but he weighed in at about 18 pounds. I think the breeder lied. Sam’s older miniature Dacshund buddy, Dash, died before Sam, and Sam missed Dash terribly.

    In Sam’s last year he lost the ability to see, smell, and control his bodily functions. We should have had him killed before we did, but Sam was part of the family. I will never forget the last time we saw Sam. It was at the veterinarian’s office. The vet, my wife, and I were all petting Sam as we made the decision to put him down.

    We had driven a couple of miles from the office when we got the call that Sam was gone. He felt no pain. We were thankful that we decided that we would not witness his last moments, no matter how much we loved him. Our last memory of Sam was him wagging his tail as three of us scratched his ears and back. Sam was eighteen years old.

    It was so much pain losing those dogs that we can never do it again. However, we do have good memories of our four footed family members.

    OUTSTANDING, Angel! I’ve lived just about every story here. Laughed a lot with my best friends and cried a lot when they had to go.

    On another note: I WANT, I CRAVE, I NEED that widget on your blog — the one, “War was declared on the United States…” How can I get hold of it? PLEEEEEZE! I’ve tried finding it at the link you gave… No es bueno. Nada.

    I’ll love ya forever and ever! PROMISE!

    Good post, Angel! I want a teacup Pomeranian. They’re so cute! I would politely disagree with one thing, though. People are not animals. They’re HUMAN, a special being created by God in His image. Animals are wonderful creatures but not made in God’s likeness. Just my two cents.

    Dogs are amazing. I wish that we had one.

    When the weather is nice, however, Mr. AOW does get to see a dog in our neighborhood. See this. The dog is starved for attention; once he was no longer a puppy, the kids at his house were no longer interested in him. :(

    I have always been a dog lover. From the Beagle when I was a boy to the three Great Danes that I last had as a man, they are wonderful salves for the soul. They are our friends and our family, and they bring light when there is darkness. Is it any wonder that they have a special place in the heart of man? Thank you for this Angel, you made my day!

    People see me as a cat person, but I love dogs, too. I have two of them and they bring much joy and love to me and my family each and every day.

    I was touched by your tribute to your Ashley. We miss our German shepherd, Dax, and it’s been 6 years since she passed. I guess it’s true what they say about their paw prints leave a mark on our hearts forever.

  9. Marine4Ever says:

    Excellent point, Seane-Anna. But, I still wish they could be in Heaven with Jesus and me.

  10. Woodsterman says:

    They are indeed man’s best friends.

  11. KarLLLMMMM says:

    I never heard/saw a dog launch a rocket at helpless children..

    I never heard/saw a dog wear a bomb belt and kill innocent women and children..

    I never heard/saw a dog sue for the right to pray 40+ times a day/have wash basins and wear a towel around its head..

    I guess that’s why they are Man’s Best Friend..Thanks Angel for the dedication to God gift to Humanity…

  12. Bunkerville says:

    Indeed. No better friend. Hope you had a great weekend, angel.

    A dog will stay by your side through thick and thin. Never judge you as too fat or too thin, too smart or too dumb, or care if you are rich or poor.

    A dog will always be your best friend and never tell another person any secret you tell them.

    I don’t trust people that don’t like dogs, and I don’t trust people that dogs don’t like.
    I took my Motley on vacation. Sit on Mackinaw Island and watch the crowds go by. Happy tailwagger, kids and adults come up to pet her (she was a shepherd) yet out of all those people, one guy walks by and she starts to growl, long and low. I still wonder about that guy.

    Bob’s comment touched me because I had two cats I loved SO MUCH (had despised cats till a friend convinced me they were just the thing to keep me company since I’d moved my office into my house…before Mr. Z,…all alone all day/night)…….I’d promised them both that when they went, I’d have them in my arms, but I simply couldn’t do it at the vet for either of them. I was blinded by tears I thought would never stop both times….and practically ran to the car and took off both times…so sad!
    I’ve never owned a dog, but Mr Z wanted one….apartments in Paris and condos in LA aren’t conducive to the big dog he wanted!
    Thanks for the post; lovely, Angel.

    I have two pugs, one named Henry, the other Steve Harkonnen with the first being named after a historical character and the latter being named after a blogger from a few years back. SamiAm.

    Don’t give them pupperonis. Too many urinary tract blockages occurring.

    Several years ago-My 7 yr old came home from church – crying-”Mom-pastor says that Daphne (our Irish Setter who died a year before ) isn’t in heaven>”

    So- I called the “good pastor” and said-”I see nowhere in the OKJ version of the bible that our best friend – pets- are not in heaven-
    So-I tell you this-Send me to no heaven where there are no dogs-horses – cats- or other animals..”
    Thank you for this post -Angel-
