This week’s Guest in Jest is LISMORE PAPER


You know those people who apologize to their dog for leaving the house, yep that’s me. When I leave for work I explain that momma has to go make biscuit money. My husband just mentioned he is a little jealous of the dog.

I have always said if humans could love like a dog, this world would be a much better place. Scientists have said the feeling of love we get in the early stages of a relationship is what a dog feels when we arrive home after a long day. The happiness they express as their tail knocks everything over in sight and their little backend shakes uncontrollably…now that is love. I don’t see any other hiney shaking for me…just sayin.

I have always been a dog person. I love the devotion, love, and friendship that is built between an owner and dog…really though I think the dogs own us. Have you ever seen, The Secret Life of Pets? I really think this happens. If you are a pet owner, its a must watch. I always try to imagine what goes on while we are away. I think Esme and Walter “Dog Talk” while Linda and myself are away. You can see by the picture, I captured some shenanigans going on.


My sweet Esme is a black german shepherd. She has such a beautiful soul. Her tender heart and fierce love truly is the greatest gift I could ever receive. They always say you don’t get the dog you want, you are gifted the dog you need. We were gifted with her sister, Ester, for five years before she crossed the rainbow bridge. They truly were sisters, fighting and grumbling one moment and protecting each other the next.

With that said, I love reading quotes about dogs. Here are a few of my favorites:

“You can always find hope in a dogs eyes.”

“Home is where someone runs to greet me.”

“Everyone thinks they have the best dog, but none of them are wrong.”


“Love. Wet Noses. Sloppy Wet Kisses. Wagging Tails. Full Heart.

My wish for you is to know the love of a dog. If you have the opportunity adopt a dog, you will not only change their life, it will change yours!

  1. I loved this post and it is SO nice to see Esme.

    I totally get how you feel about dogs Lisa, and share those sentiments. I keep watching puppy videos on Instagram…and yes, I know how pathetic that is 🙂

  2. This post made me laugh. I used to talk to my two cats all the time and yes I also apologized to them when I was gone for too long. Lol. Cats usually are not showing their love like dogs but you should have seen my cats behaviour. They both would greed me and meow so loud at me when I was working too late. I knew I was in trouble and I had to give each of them long caresses until they stopped to meow. Thanks for reminding me of this lovely time Lisa. And thank you also for sharing these quotes. By the way, Walter’s artwork still makes me laugh. Great collage too.

    1. Thank you for sharing your story, it made me smile! Cats definitely share their opinions especially if you are not doing exactly what they want lol Walter brings me so much joy and in the outfit, I laugh every time. 💕😊

      1. That’s probably why I like cats so much. Lol Both Walter and Esme are adorable. That reminds me we have to put the dogs t-shirt on our shop. Have a great week ahead Lisa.

    2. Aren’t pets funny? Cats are thought to be more reticent than dogs, but if that’s so, we’ve had cats that think they are dogs! Our kitten Tulip will follow Bill all over the house meowing until he picks her up. Our older cat Lily used to follow us when we’d go for walks in the field. Off we would go: two humans, two dogs and a cat following behind! Hehe, that Walter pic still makes me laugh, too!

      1. I used to have a cat that did exactly like Lily. Sigma would follow me every morning on my way to school. This used to impress the other kids a lot. It is so cute that Tulip wants to be in Bill’s arms and demands it. All your pets have lots of personality. Ooh… and Walter is so adorable. You should do a family photo with all your pets. Can’t wait to see you and Bill!

  3. I am a cat person, our whole family is. Our cat doesn’t like anyone but my hubby, myself and our son (she really dislikes our daughter!). She is not the cat that would make a dog lover happy! But she does get depressed when she is left alone too long, and “stalks” us until we sit down so she can get on our laps😊 And, reminds us that it is 5pm everyday, as that is her dinner time😂
