Ten reasons why having a dog makes you rich

Happy Monday, Everyone!

Loup here again.

Some of my Caring Cairn owner Facebook friends had this on their status today. It inspired me to write this blog post.

No matter how little money and how few possesions you own, having a dog makes you rich." - Louis Sabin

Ten reasons why having a dog makes you rich.

  1. You have to walk us which forces you to get out and exercise. We’re good for your physical and mental health.

  2. You become less selfish when you think of your dog’s needs as well as your own.

  3. Dogs give unconditional love. Cats, well, not so much.

  4. We’re always happy to see you no matter what. Unlike cats!

  5. We stroke your ego and make you feel like a king/queen. (Especially if you’ve got treats!)

  6. We make it easier for you to break the ice with humans. Geesh, you guys are uptight when it comes to talking to strangers. We pave the way for you and make it easier.

  7. We appreciate the small things in life like a good sock to chew on and we make you appreciate them, too.

  8. We live in the moment instead of regretting the past or worrying about the future.

  9. Our lives our shorter than yours. We remind you that life is short and to make the best of the time you have.

  10. We are content with very little and grateful for so much.


  1. What a lovely list! Our people totally agree. They don't have a pup right now, but are hoping just the right one will find them soon.


  2. Oh Dog! You got THAT right! I dunno WHAT them humans would do without us!
