Saw this today and thought I’d share:
“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours faithful and true to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.”
So true. So very true. Dogs are there waiting for you when you come home. They hear your car, get excited. Their human is home! They do it day after day without fail. We, as their humans, are their lives. They live FOR us. Even if we come home cranky and don’t want to be bothered and shoo them away. They’ll go sometimes with their tails tucked. But they’ll usually go. They’ve been waiting all day for that moment. I look back at the times that they all met me at the door and I was just crankier than all get-out and I instructed them to go to the other room…it tears my heart out.
So when you go home at night and your dog greets you, think of this quote. You are his life. His love. His EVERYTHING. Don’t shirk that off. He doesn’t deserve it. And yes, I’m as guilty as this as anybody else. And this quote makes the importance even more real.
Truly, this quote holds true. We owe it to our dogs to be worthy…are we worthy?
