The truth about dogs is that they are pure loyalty. With their great big hearts and bottomless love. Always happy, always beside you and, always ready for the next adventure with you. No matter what happens in your life, your dog will still show the same unwavering devotion. He doesn’t care if you hang out all day in your pajamas and skip the shower. He could watch you inhale an extra-large bag of chips without judging. He probably wants to share but he isn’t going to think any less of you!
On your sick days when no one else wants to see your runny nose and your record setting bed head, your pooch will be by your side. He’ll be right there, keeping your feet warm and beseeching you to get better with wide and limpid eyes. If you get dumped, your pooch will be your one and only guest to your big sad pity party, offering a furred shoulder to cry on and never once rolling his eyes and wondering when you’ll get a grip on yourself.
It might be a sad truth that yes, dogs are easier to be with than a lot of humans. With a dog you will never be subjected to sarcastic comments or belittlement. Whatever story you care to share with your dog goes right into the doggy vault. Any insecurities and shortcomings are accepted and then guarded for all time. Your dog will always love you for exactly who you are, and that’s a huge comfort in a sometimes crazy and mixed up world.
Whatever it is you are in the mood for, you can pretty much guarantee that your dog is super-duper ready to do it with you. Go for a walk – only always! Car ride? Oh yeah, I call shotgun! Cuddle up on the couch and watch a movie or three? OK!! Truly, as long as your dog is with you, they are happy and content. No matter what time of day it is, all you have to say is “hey, let's go!” and watch for tail wags, smiles and, maybe even a little bit of a happy dance!
Once you have had a wonderful dog, a life without one, is a life diminished.” --Dean Koontz
