Dogs as Role Models

"I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive." —Gilda Radner

This was the quote of the day in our newsletter at work. When I first read it, my thoughts were total agreement. Dogs forgive easily, are passionate about things (like chasing squirrels), and are generally nice creatures. Oh yes, they are role models.

And then I remembered that my dogs like to eat poop out of the cat box. I guess that even when it comes to role models, there are limits to everything.

I always find myself feeling like an ass for being disappointed in dogs that I love and then engage in poop eating and embarassing sniffing of guests and licking themselves...
