Oh wow. I haven’t really been on here for the longest time. But life has been life, with school and everything.
Sam is going nuts because my mom’s home from work.
Ouch! Just stepped on one of Percy’s toys. Dogs… gotta love them.
But something I realized is that dogs are literally perfect.
Sure you have to train them, but they are. Let me explain.
- Loyalty. Dog will be loyal to their humans… forever. It’s one of the things we humans lack sometimes.
- Love. Okay Okay. Humans can have this too. But do humans love each other to no end? Don’t know danger because all they want is to protect? Just stare and memorize every exact detail so they never forget? Come running over to the person they love like the world was going to end but then they came? Writing this now I realize I could write a poem about love… Anyway… I know everyone who’s married or dating would say yes. But we can’t really understand how much dogs love us. Granted the dog’s brain lights up where our brains light up when we see someone we deeply love with. But will that person sacrifice themselves just because they don’t want you to feel like you need to do it? That’s what a dog’s love means. Any dog lover would agree.
- Playfulness. As humans age they get less playful, because of getting tired out or breathless. Dogs can get to where they would be eighty in dog years yet will sometimes still play like a puppy. I think everyone will agree with me when I say that no human can have a dogs playfulness through their entire life. (Percy is running around in a circle like a madman while Sam is just moving across the room to come face-to-face with Percy which sets him off in the other direction, ect.)
- Last but not least… Adorable. Sure babies are a rival for this… but are babies like adorable furry pillows? I don’t think so. Are all babies adorable their entire lives? Some, but not all. (I mean no offense to anyone.) However dog lovers never get tired of looking at their dog. Maybe we do understand part of a dog’s love.
It’s how we love them back.
You know, A dog can snap you out of any bad mood you’re in faster than you can think of.
