Okay, one is a man’s best friend, and the other is a girl’s best friend…
Which one wins?
Which is the “better” friend?
Let’s find out in today’s best friend challenge:
Dog vs Diamond
First off, there are around 339 breeds of dogs in the world. That’s a lot.
But, there are around 25,000 different diamond quality combinations (SI1, I, 1.00 CT, E, G, VS, .50, D, I1, M…) Big difference. And that’s not including polish, symmetry, fluorescence, girdle or culet sizes. So it’s really endless what you could find in diamonds.
Dogs come in all different shapes and sizes; short, squat, fat, pudgy…
Diamonds can be cut into any shape you desire (even Mickey Mouse).
Dogs come in many different colors; blacks, whites, gold, brown…
Well, okay, that’s about it, but diamonds can come in every color of the rainbow (reds, greens, pinks, blues…)
Diamonds last forever.
Dogs, eh, about 15-20 years.
But then again dogs are part of your family.
And, so are the “family jewels“. ;)
Dogs have unconditional love, and boy do I love my diamonds no matter what.
Dogs don’t judge us, and neither do diamonds. Although humans tend to judge them both.
Dogs are natural dish-washers.
Diamonds tend to sink to the bottom of the water.
Dogs can freeze if they get too cold… Diamonds are already “frozen” in time (after all, diamonds were created over 3 billion years ago).
Dogs are enthusiastic… Diamonds want to be enthusiastically on your finger.
Diamonds are cold to the touch. Dogs have cold noses.
Some diamonds are “hot” as well, and so are some dogs (pant pant).
Dogs can motivate you, but so can diamonds (motivate me to make more money).
Diamonds can glow-in-the-dark.
So can dogs with glow in the dark hairspray!
Dogs have your back.
Diamonds have your neck, ears, arms, fingers and toes.
Dogs are loyal
Diamonds are royal.
Dogs can be “chocolate” in color…
Diamonds can also be “chocolate” colored…
Dogs don’t hold grudges. They don’t regret the past or worry about the future.
Diamonds are durable, last forever, and are very rare.
Dogs are noisy, slobbery, and fart a lot.
Diamonds are quiet, slick, and smell wonderful!
Dogs are hairy, and that hair will be found everywhere.
Diamonds are smooth, polished and perfect (although some do have hair-line fractures).
The most expensive dog in the world is a Tibetan Mastiff costing around 2 million dollars.
The most expensive diamond just sold for a cool 80 million (oval “Pink Star” diamond)
Dogs will eat you out of house and home.
Diamonds can cost more than a home, but they are a one-time purchase.
Dogs need shots and a trip to the vet.
Diamonds need mountings and a trip to the jeweler.
Dogs have fun in the pool, lake or puddle.
Diamonds go down the drain.
Dogs guard your home from burglars… That are trying to steal your diamonds.
(Although Cruella De Vil tried to steal Dalmatians)
Dogs will die for you…
Diamonds are “Til death do we part“.
Dogs poop a lot…
But some people call diamonds “Dinosaur Do-Do“.
Diamonds are dazzling, brilliant and bright…
Just like a dog’s eyes (that don’t blink while you eat).
So is there a true winner?
Of course not!
One will hunt, lick the inside of your mouth, and defend you against the mailman…
The other will sparkle like a million stars in the sky…
Diamonds are dreams and hopes and passion…
Dogs are smart and clever, and “Hey look, a squirrel…“
Whether they’re on your fingers, nose or lobes, diamonds are diamonds, and dogs are dogs.
But combining these two…
And that’s dog-gone good.
It’s certainly something to “Bark” about.
