Dogs Make Our World a Better Place

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #177!

The photo above is of Amanda and our dog, Benny, in the park near our home. There isn't a playground, but there is space to run around.

I've had dogs on my mind ever since the break-in just before the Easter weekend. We were at home and only found out that we were robbed the next morning. We own a sweet animal shelter dog who is now 12 years old and doesn't bark at people. He'll bark at the trash truck and fighting cats, but mostly he just communicates with his eyes.

That is why I feel that it is time we introduce a second dog into our home. We need one that is loving, loyal and protective. The thieves had to pry their way in, so a barking dog would probably have sent them running. Thankfully, only material things were stolen and none of us were harmed.

Maybe a dog like this one?
