Many dogs today live an easy life

There is an old expression referring to “live the life of the dog.”

Dating back to the 16th century, it refers to living a miserable and unhappy life, according to

Although the expression might have been true a long time ago, things had clearly changed. These days, most dogs live a charming life that most of us love!

When I grew up in the early ’80s, we had a little white dog named Buttons.

Despite what my kids think, this was after the 16th century. By then, things were better for dogs, but nothing compared to what is happening today!

We loved the buttons and treated them well. She lived a beautiful life and rarely complained. But then again, she had no idea how things would improve over the next 30 years.
