Most people who observe Christmas, who have a dog, will buy that dog a Christmas present.

Some can't wait: they let the dog have it that night. Most will put it under the tree and hold off 'til Christmas.

Some people will buy a dog gift, but no human gifts.

A dog is so good about a present. They love it. Doesn't make a bit of difference to a dog, whether you picked it out a month ago, or stopped off at the last minute on your way home.

Will Rogers said, "If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went." Andy Rooney notes, "The average dog is a nicer person than the average person."

To everyone in this KTSA audience whose family unit includes a dog, hello from us at KTSA, and our dogs.

Dogs take us like we are. They don't know if we are pretty or plain, smart or dumb, educated or ignorant. Our family dogs just love us for us. No prejudices at all.

I wonder how it'll take for most of humanity to advance that far?

Nothing against cats. Today isn't their turn, is all.
