This has to be one the funniest and most interesting dog video clips and what they are capable of, the last dog in the video not only 'speaks', says a phrase and you can understand it!!!!!   Hopefully this is a joy for some whom feel down cause of disease issues, passed loved ones or animals, or need a laugh in the wintertime...etc.  tongue

I love cats too, in fact had a love affair with one cat in my life ... my neighbor's cat if you can believe it.
But I've always felt sorry for people who have this attitude about dogs.  They will never experience the incredible relationship that you can only experience with a dog.
Loved the dog on the trampoline ... too funny!  He/she is clearly trying to jump and having a joyous time! turn

Piy,

I never grew up with dogs. Only cats, I love their independence and attitude. We had a good outdoor dog until a year ago. Had to have her put down, but she was just shy of 20 years in age. The vet was amazed, being that she was a large breed dog. She was great around the kids when they were young, and a first rate watch dog. I can't handle the thought of an indoor dog, as I am really sensitive to smells, and even a clean dog smells rank to me, especially inside a house.

No doubt, dogs are a most popular pet for sure. And the video was funny.

Our son's beagle mix, now 14 and nearing the end of her life, used to climb trees and catch squirrels.  Once a kid knocked on their door to say, "Hey, mister, your dog is sitting in your tree."

Our daughter taught our last dog to say, "I love you," and he said it just as well as the dog at the end of the video.  I think he was really sincere when he said it.

Thanks, Zufus, for brightening up the day.

We have 2 dogs. We rescued Gracie 12/7/2008 2 months after I retired. She is my 5 yr old baby. Having her around kept me centered. In Feb 19th last year we took in Mojo. He's around 2 1/2 years old. They are great together. They each weigh about 60 lbs. Gracie is always looking for affection Mojo is content with being close to me. Every now and again he'll come looking for quick pet. My wife is a cat person. At times she has had 5 or more cats around. We had a German Shepherd who had to be put down when he was 9 yrs old. His rear legs stopped working. He died 7 months after the passing of our 13 yr old daughter July 9, 1994. She currently has 2 indoor cats and feeds 2-3 neighborhood cats.
The dogs have been a big help to my mental health. They don't know PC, Ed. They just want to be around me. Always wagging their tails looking for my attention.
