I came across this awesome quote from Richard Friedman recently, and as a dog owner really related to it. I love that my dog is so sweet and encouraging and happy to see me. Love that! There are days when even your spouse or family isn’t that happy to see you! LOL. But your dog always is.
“Money will buy you a fine dog, but only love can make it wag its tail.”
― Richard Friedman
Dogs are so compassionate that it really blows my mind. They are right there when you’re upset. If you’re crying? Forget it, they are all over you. They don’t want you to be sad. Sometimes when we’re even watching a scary movie, I’ll scream and my dog will come running over to me and lick my face and stay there until she feels it’s “all okay” again.
Sometimes the dog takes a nap with me, and when I wake up I see her right next to me, in this sphinx-like pose. Like she isn’t letting anything near me while I sleep. Then, when I open my eyes, she’ll give me a lick without abandoning her “post.” On Packer Sundays, she relaxes on her favorite chair.
