Happy Father’s day to men with pets…

day 5

Especially the one who’s surviving living here in Doodleville with us.

This year I’d like to give a public declaration:

This man that I live with, my husband – did not “initiate” getting a dog, let alone two.

But – because he loves me, he agreed and welcomed Harley into our home at a time when we were foot loose and fancy free… #livinlavidaloca


Now he may not be pawfect all the time #dontdopoop

But let me tell you – when it comes to the Boys he’s as close as one can get.


  • has the patience of Job. When Jax was a puppy, he was into everything, but if he wanted to stay up underneath Lee all day long, it was alright with him…


  • advocates on their behalf all the time. Especially if I suggest we leave the Boys at home. Yeah – I’ll admit it, on “occasion” I’ve wanted to be in public with no leash, water, treats or poop bags #shootme But it’s HIM who smiles and says “let’s bring the Boys”…


  • talks things over with them. In this photo – he’s explaining the dangers of the open lit fireplace. And if you think that’s funny, believe me when I tell you – they listen!…

day 4

  • can make lying on the floor after a long day at work to check on a sick dog look “sexy“… #turnoutthelights


  • gets on his knees to explain to your dog (who’s waiting for you to come home) that you’re gonna be gone for a few days #lovethisbrother


  • has such a gentle spirit, (something I believe ALL men with pets possess). He understands when our pets may need a little help from their friends…


My grandmother used to tell me when I grew up to measure the man I wanted to marry by the way he treated his mother. If he treated her like the most important person in his life – he was a good man.

I never really understood what she meant until I met the real Mrs. Bennett 🙂 and watched the interactions of the two #endearing

In addition to that, I’d like to add – if you know a man who loves his pets with all his heart, then you too – know a good man…


So on this Father’s Day – the Boys chose to share this poem with Doodle Dad and all the gentle, loving, caring, patient men out there – with pets…

Day 2

    Dear Cathy,


    Our dogs over the years have been comforting companions.
    People who don’t have a dog(s) are not living life to the fullest IMHO.

    Many regards,

    I love this! Although it’s hard to pick a favorite, I have to go with doodle dad explaining the fire place dangers. So sweet! I think I may have to steal your poem for Wrigley and Piper’s card to daddy!

    Doodle Dad is awesome!! My hubby taught ME to love dogs, and for that I will love him forever. 🙂
    Yup, it’s the truth….I wasn’t always a dog person. But like Doodle Dad, I am now over the top about them!

    Great poem! I might have to “steal” it, too! I have to look to see if I have a card-making program on the laptop.
