"Hallelujah I'm a Bum!"

NQBR but it occurred to me this morning that dogs are bums.

I mean bums in the old sense of living on handouts, doing no real work, imposing on people and generally being a drain on society.

I took my dogs with me to the barn this morning and they did their best to shed out their entire summer coats in my car while I rode.

Then I brought them home and Rufus continued his only mode of useful work which consists of staring at me relentlessly the whole time I'm home.

Everywhere I go I turn around and see him sitting and staring at me. I believe he expects me to explode, and wants to be there as an eye-witness.

Bums. Why do we adore them so??!


  1. Oh my goodness, your dogs are so adorable! :)

  2. Thank you Susan! I guess they must earn their living by being cute...

  3. Hmmmm yes. This is very true. Cats are even bigger leeches on society as they contribute absolutely nothing. Well... maybe some hairballs...
