Thursday Thinking

We were invited by our friends over at the Five Sibes blog to take part in the Three Day Quote Challenge

Here are the rules for this challenge:

1. Post for three consecutive days.
2. Choose and share one or three quotes each day.
3. Challenge three additional bloggers each day.

Since we are Sibes, we aren't always the best with rules.  We decided to do a three-in-one quote post. Mom is still trying to catch up after her long weekend and another one coming along soon.  We are already over a week late in getting to this one.  So here we go!!!

“When the Man waked up he said, ‘What is Wild Dog doing here?’ And the Woman said, ‘His name is not Wild Dog any more, but the First Friend, because he will be our friend for always and always and always.'”
Rudyard Kipling (author, The Jungle Book)

We think that quote might be referring to us:)

This next one is dedicated to our Three Angels.

“He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds. He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea. He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being; by the way he rests against my leg; by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile; by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him. (I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.) When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive. When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile. When I am happy, he is joy unbounded. When I am a fool, he ignores it. When I succeed, he brags. Without him, I am only another man. With him, I am all-powerful. He is loyalty itself. He has taught me the meaning of devotion. With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant. His head on my knee can heal my human hurts. His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things. He has promised to wait for me… whenever… wherever – in case I need him. And I expect I will – as I always have. He is just my dog.” – Gene Hill

Angel Thunder Dunder, Angel Princess Dakota, and Angel Mr. Blue Eyes Phantom

And just to lighten things up a bit!

Dogs are the leaders of the planet. If you see two life forms, one of them’s making a poop, the other one’s carrying it for him, who would you assume is in charge?
—Jerry Seinfeld

Um, that would be about ME since I never go for a walk without leaving a deposit along the way:)

Thanks to our dear friends at the Five Sibes blog for letting us take part in this challenge.  We know a lot of you have already been tapped to take part, so if you would like to join in, please accept our invitation to do so.
