Dog Owners: Are You Loving? or a Goofball?

If you scratch your dog where it itches you, are a kind, loving owner who gets pleasure from doing good for those who have more hair than you do.

If you scratch your dog where it itches, then grab the camera and contort yourself to get this shot, you are just a goofball and I hope the Ferguson grabs a shot of you sleeping on the couch drooling.

This other guy has some other thoughts about petting dogs.

What do you think about when you pet a dog or cat? There are three typical categories:

1. You imagine how it feels for the animal so you can maximize its pleasure.

2. You think about how it feels to you and your hand.

3. You think about whatever you were going to think about anyway.

Now some may poo-poo (hi Micki) the idea, but this Adams guy concludes

It’s important to have goals when you pet. Otherwise you’re just rubbing another mammal for no reason.

Dog Owners: Are You Loving? or a Goofball? — 7 Comments

  1. I LOVE this pic!

    I read once in a book of wisdom written by kids that “You should never walk past a dog without petting it.” That has become a way of life for me. If there is a [friendly] dog in my presence, he’s getting pet, no matter what. That’s just how it is. And I think, deep down, my dog, Jake, knows that and takes full advantage of it.

  2. Rubbing a mammal for no reason should actually be illegal.
    When I pet my beloved doggie I think about how it feels on my hand and how it feels to him.
