A Dog's Life

(Sent to me by a friend)

My dog has a great life:
  • He sleeps about 20 hours a day and has his food prepared for him.
  • He can eat whenever he wants.
  • His meals are provided at no cost to him.
  • He visits the doctor once a year for his check-up, and again during the year if any medical needs arise. For this he pays nothing, and nothing is required of him.
  • He lives in a nice neighborhood in a house that is much larger than he needs, but he is not required to do any upkeep.
  • He makes no contribution to the running or maintenance of the house.
  • If he makes a mess, someone else cleans it up.
  • He has his choice of luxurious places to sleep. He receives these accommodations absolutely free.
  • He is living like a King, and has absolutely no expenses whatsoever.
  • All of his costs are picked up by others who go out, work hard, and earn a living every day.
I was just thinking about all this, and suddenly it hit me like a brick in the head...I think my dog might be in Congress!
