Falling in love is like owning a dog by Taylor Mali

I found this today and it put a smile on my face, I thought I would share it with all of you, it is a very cute read and I know some of you pet lovers can relate to this.

"Falling in love is like owning a dog"
 by Taylor Mali
First of all, it's a big responsibility,
especially in a city like New York.
So think long and hard before deciding on love.
On the other hand, love gives you a sense of security:
when you're walking down the street late at night
and you have a leash on love
ain't no one going to mess with you.
Because crooks and muggers think love is unpredictable.
Who knows what love could do in its own defense?

On cold winter nights, love is warm.
It lies between you and lives and breathes
and makes funny noises.
Love wakes you up all hours of the night with its needs.
It needs to be fed so it will grow and stay healthy.
Love doesn't like being left alone for long.
But come home and love is always happy to see you.
It may break a few things accidentally in its passion for life,
but you can never be mad at love for long.
Is love good all the time? No! No!
Love can be bad. Bad, love, bad! Very bad love.
Love makes messes.
Love leaves you little surprises here and there.
Love needs lots of cleaning up after.
Sometimes you just want to get love fixed.
Sometimes you want to roll up a piece of newspaper
and swat love on the nose,
not so much to cause pain,
just to let love know Don't you ever do that again!
Sometimes love just wants to go for a nice long walk.
Because love loves exercise.
It runs you around the block and leaves you panting.
It pulls you in several different directions at once,
or winds around and around you
until you're all wound up and can't move.
But love makes you meet people wherever you go.
People who have nothing in common but love
stop and talk to each other on the street.
Throw things away and love will bring them back,
again, and again, and again.
But most of all, love needs love, lots of it.
And in return, love loves you and never stops.

A nice post thanks for sharing.....

Such a lovely poem. The puppy in the picture is perfect for it. Love the heart spot on her.

The dog is adorable. Can't believe the heart patch is real. Very sweet poem as well :)

What a cute dog with a perfect heart patch. She looks like she was posing for the picture, she's like my youngest cat Bella, she is always photo ready.

I love the poem, especially this line "love gives you a sense of security"! :3 can I re-post this?

I wonder how many people own tiny dogs in NY and large in LA? THe guy in this pic is cute.

Like the poem says, nothing makes a dog happier than a long walk to meet and greet others

I wonder if that's a real photo of the dog or if the heart was photoshopped in. Either way, very cute! Nice post.

Awww. That dog is so adorable; and the poem reminded me of my Labrador, Duke, he's the angels' dog now :)

"Love makes messes.

I think this doesn't apply only to dogs, if you know what I mean. LOL.
