What other creature on Earth gives us undivided devotion, loyalty and love without boundaries? Do you know a person who will leap for joy at the sight of you? Do your family and friends run to the door to greet you every time you come home? Do you have friends that will just sit with you silently, sometimes lean against you to offer comfort, when you most need it? Do you have people in your lives ready to go with you for a ride in the car or out for a walk on the spur of the moment, with no prior planning?
Is there anyone who looks at you longingly, ready to do anything and everything that you ask the moment you ask it? Do you have people who just want to be where you are all the time? When you feel badly and take it out on your family and friends, do they forgive you instantly, kiss your hand and make you feel better?
Probably not. But, your dog embodies those traits. Is there any wonder that we love our dogs? They are the image of unconditional love.
Now, just think. If we could just give each other a fraction of that kind of love, what a wonderful world this could be.
