Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, last weekend you hid our traveling journal in my paddling dry bag. (Just in case our house flooded). Reason #262 why boy roommates are AWESOME. Dear Neighbor, each morning I see you walking your dogs while wearing a fishing vest. I like to think you keep biscuits in all of those pockets you have. Dear Nammi Food Truck, last night we followed your Tweets 15 min north to Beltline & Montfort. Your basil lemonade and grilled pork tacos had us saying, "Thank you sir, may we have another?" Dear Husband, yesterday you performed two knee injections on a 93 year old cutie. (Insert a brave man rrright hurrr).

What do you love most about having a dog? I still hope to come home one day and find a puppy hiding under our bed! PS, don't forget about our 50% off sale for advertising. We only have a few ad spaces left for August!

The unadulterated love and affection, definitely. We lost our dear girl nearly five years ago and I still miss her.

Maybe someday when we grow up and graduate from college forever and stop living in dorms we will have another puppy love.

Hoping for your under the bed searches to come true soon!

They are always so happy to see you! And they make the best snugglers!

You know we are always along for adverts!

It doesn't matter how bad of a day I've had. When I come home to smiling (yes, one really does smile), tail wagging puppies that are happy to see me, it makes my day better!

I love the unconditional love and excitement they have to my hubby and me. Its the jumping, the wiggling, the smiles (Brittaney is right - they do smile!), and when they want to snuggle up on your lap (even when they weigh 85 pounds).

Hope you get a little furball soon!

That no matter what, with my pup around I absolutely know I will laugh and smile every single day. :) Dogs are also the best inspiration to Live in the Moment.

The Loerkes need to come see the Clydes newest addition...Scout. For reals! We got her last Friday.

Do I have to choose ONE? OK then...since unconditional love is taken....I will say: they keep your booty in shape! Rain or shine, you HAVE to go for that walk/run. Tired pup = happy pup (equals happy owner) :) There's nothing quite like dog love... xo, JL

I like that I can leave for less than 2 minutes to get something out of my car and Arthur is THRILLED beyond belief when I come back. He doesn't really have a tail--just a nub so his whole back half shakes in happiness. Nothing beats it. Plus animals are so protective--when I am sick, he knows it and is super cuddly. If I'm having a less than fabulous day he does the same thing. Dogs are geniuses.

My husband and I are cat people (don't hate us!), but what I love about them is how I just know they understand and love us, even when they're being aloof. My kitty had surgery recently, and when I picked her up she was hissing at everyone until she saw me. Then she basically jumped into my arms and snuggled as close as she could. I like to think she was saying "Thank you for rescuing me, Mama! Take me home!"

Our cats give our home life and I love them for it.

All of the above. Plus the fact that it doesn't matter if I talk rudely to them, within 60 seconds, they have forgiven me and love me no matter what. They dont hold grudges. They are ALWAYS there to meet me at the door, even if I've just gone to check the mail. They act like they haven't seen me in an eternity! Oh and they NEVER let me run late to work because they get me up at 4:45 even on days that I dont have to work. :)

yall should definitely get a puppy! that way we can bring Charlie over for a play date, he needs some friends in Dallas! I was never much of a dog person til we got Charles...i swear he is half human and understands 75% of what I say. But the other half of him is definitely mentally challenged, and we still love him to death :)

This is a great question! I was having a bad day today, came home on lunch, and instantly I was in a much better mood. My pup was so happy to see me. He smiled at me, licked me, jumped on me, and all around loved me. He calms me . . . I love him so much and he loves me unconditionally. I hope you get your wish!

Dogs are a TON of work, we have an 18 month old, but I love watching my 3 y/o son love on her (he rides her like a horsie and shouts yeeeehaw!)

i also love knowing i have a constant ready running/walking partner. She is great motivation when I feel lazy!

As the saying goes, "My dog isn't my whole life, but my dog makes my life whole." So, so true. The tail wags, the licks, the potty accidents, the snuggles, the barks, the stealing of food, the dog hair on the couch...all worth it for the love a dog gives a family.

Also, here's a plug for shelter mutts...they are the best. My shelter mutt is one of the cutest dogs EVER and everyday she shows us how appreciative she is that we saved her and love her.
