If I Didn't have Dachshunds

I could walk around the yard barefoot.

My house could be carpeted.

Surfaces, clothing, furniture, & vehicle would be free of hair.

When the doorbell rings, it wouldn't sound like a kennel& I could get to the door without wading through litlle long bodies who beat me there.

I could sit on the couch the way I wanted without taking into
consideration how much space several fur bodies would need to get comfortable.

I would not be on a first-name basis with 6 veterinarians, as I put their yet unborn grandkids through college.

The most used words in my vocabulary would not be: out, sit, down, come, no, stay, and leave it alone.

My house would not be cordoned off with baby gates.

I would not talk 'baby talk'

My house would not look like a day care, toys all over the floor.

My pockets would not contain poop bags & treats.

I would no longer have to spell W-A-L-K or T-R-E-A-T.

I would not have as many leaves inside my house as outside.

I would not look strangely at people who think having ONE dog ties them down too much.

I'd look forward to spring & the rain instead of dreading mud & dog poop season.

I would not have to answer the question... 'Why do you have so many dachshunds?' from people who will never have the joy of knowing they are loved unconditionally by someone as close to Angels as they will ever get.

How EMPTY my life would be!!!
