Dog Bench I Saw and Ocean Photo

 

Bounce and I took a walk and found this bench facing the ocean, set up to honor three family dogs. The top line says "Dogs own nothing, yet are seldom dissatisfied." The bottom line says "Properly trained people are dogs' best friends."

Below is the ocean in a photo I took that day, near where the bench is.

Beau said to tell Bounce, he owns something, Beau owns his people and I am betting Bounce owns you too

Someone knew their dogs well!

What a lovely thought, a bench to honor your dogs. You live in such a beautiful area, one I used to visit often in my younger days. I read the part of your introduction to yourself and love the giggle part. I love to giggle too.

Love the pictures. I just got to spend a day with my daughter at the ocean. Just posted it a couple minutes ago.

Nice day for a walk. I'm not a dog person. Never have been but I can see the wisdom in that last line on the bench.

We say the grand-dog, Georgie, has us well trained.

Food for thought.

Beautiful sentiment and beautiful view too. Our Chloe is indeed the best friend to have.

Reminds me of the old saying: Be as good a person as your dog thinks you are.

I think dogs are smarter than us sometimes!
Beautiful view!

I have seen lots of dedicated benches, but none to dogs. I like that idea. And a walk by the sea - oh yes!

That's a nice bench and a lovely spot to sit and watch the waves.

That is a lovely thought on dogs who are wonderful to mankind. That also is a beautiful view and must be very calming.

Love the bench, and that is such a beautiful view of the ocean. Dogs are wonderful.

What a sweet memorial to some very special "friends", and I love the ocean picture. It looks a bit rough that day. We saw some nice memorial benches like this (but for humans) up in Maine along the coast a couple of years ago. It was very moving to see what people had written on the benches in memory of loved ones who loved to visit that beach often. Very touching. Thank you for sharing this. I think that is a very nice idea.
