  1. 6. Dogs model what we spend years in therapy trying to learn:
    • if they’re pissed off, they express it, and it’s over – no grudges, no accumulation of baggage.
    • they communicate directly, and aren’t afraid to tell you what they like and don’t like.
    7. Dogs don’t leave town for the entire month of August.
    8. Your dog will lay her head in your lap and look up at you with soulful eyes; your therapist probably shouldn’t.
    9. If you enjoy watching your therapist napping in the sunlight, you have a bigger problem than you thought.
    10. If you love your therapist, it’s transference. If you love your dog, it’s love.

  2. 6. They are always the same, no matter what day of the week it is, or how crappy a day you had.
    7. They are good for hugging.
    8. They will happily prewash your dinner plates for the dishwasher.
    9. They keep you warm.
    10. They are excellent bedside nurses & never catch what you have.
