In my opinion, every person must own a dog at some point in their life. A dog is the purest form of unconditional love known to man. He doesn’t care what you look like, say, do or feel. He is constantly by your side looking up and trying to read your expression. He cries and wails when you leave him and shakes uncontrollably in excitement when you come back. Even though you feed him the same kibble every day, he eats it up as if it is the best thing you have ever given him.
You can sit in a chair and soon expect him to jump up and take up over twice the space necessary for his small furry body. In turn he looks up at you and sighs with contentment and places his weary head on your inviting leg. He could sit there for hours. Possibly even days just watching the world go by without a single care.
He listens to you when you tell him about your hard day and he licks your hand in agreement. His neck catches all the tears you cry as you hug him and tell him you have had enough. After all of that is said and done, he gives you a look of adoration and you feel as though you can carry on. He begs for forgiveness when he has torn something up and refuses to make eye contact until you accept his apology.
No matter what, he loves you. To everyone else you may not mean much, but you are literally his world. You have hung the moon and the stars and he simply wouldn’t have it any other way. He is the best friend you will ever have, yet he will always see it the other way around. There is not much worth trading for the love of a dog.
Lots of Love,
