  • The best way to end a ruff week? Pawsitive vibes and blasting music on your subwoofer
  • My retriever was pacing by the phone because he waiting for his Lab results
  • I was trying to tell my dog a story while playing fetch and he told me to cut to the chase
  • Told my dog to brush his hair before we left the house -he fur-got
  • Signed my retriever up for school because I thought he’d be good at the Lab reports
  • My dog couldn’t believe we were out of treats – he was a-paw-lled
  • Fed my dalmatian a steak – he said it hit the spot
  • My dog has a far-fetched way of playing – he will only chase the balls that go beyond the dog park
  • My dog never tells the truth, he only tells tall tails
  • Brought my dog’s new litter speed dating so they could find puppy love
  • I spend all my time with my dogs, my human friends think I’m going to Rover-dose
  • I can’t get my dog to show any emotion – some would say he’s melon Collie
  • My Labradoodle is so naturally artistic
  • Dogs are fairly good at magic, just ask my labracadardor
