Experience the Love of a Dog – Here’s Why

Ah, love.  Dean Martin said it best, “Everybody loves somebody some time…”.  But while you’re waiting, find you a dog to love. Furthermore, if that pup is a rescue, all the better.  Bet you didn’t realize it, but when you rescue a dog, you save two lives, the dog you adopt and the rescued dog who gets his spot. Unfortunately, shelters don’t have unlimited space.

In addition to the ‘saving a life’ thing, there’s nothing like the love of a dog.

It’s unconditional.

When you take a dog into your home, you make sacrifices for their safety and comfort. As a result, you’ll be rewarded with never-ending devotion. Not a bad deal.

They’re very sensitive.

When you’re feeling happy, your dog is relaxed.  Sensing that you’re in a good mood, he or she is able to chill and know all is well.  However, when you’re sad or upset, your furry friend will be right there to kiss your tears away. Now, that’s doggie love.

How nice to know that you’re so trustworthy.

In this relationship, your dog is totally dependent on you.  Accordingly, when you’re around, it’s easy for your dog to be excited to see you.  And, you never let them down, do you? Always showing up with a smile and a treat, waiting for that big sloppy smackeroo right on the lips. You’re not wiping it off, you’re rubbing it in, right?

Dogs make you a better person.

In return for your caring and companionship, your dog keeps you on your toes.  You’re gonna get some doggie love when you take a nice, long walk in the park, even when you don’t feel like it.  Or, when you give your pup a bath, even when he or she doesn’t feel like it. You’ve taken responsibility for them and in return, you have a friend for life.

This all sounds great. What else is good about the love of a dog?

  • Well, your dog will keep you warm.
  • Dogs help you make friends.
  • They give you lots to post about on social media.

    • Thanks, Mauro. Whenever I look at a pup, my heart smiles. And, when my Roxie hears my voice and wiggles that little stub of an Australian Shepherd’s tail, it’s love.
      Thanks for taking the time to read.

  1. I love dogs. I always had shepherds. Now I have a little rescue mutt who is a shepherd beagle mix. He looks like a miniature german shepherd. I had a therapy dog a while back and I do want another one some day but I can’t trust a rescue to do that because you never know what triggers may be there. I don’t believe in all of the breeding practices that occur either. I want to buy a shepherd that has not passed the Fidelco test.
