I never understood how it is not ingrained in the very fiber of every human being. The love for dogs. The way they look at us. The way they speak to us. The way they make us feel.....the way they entice emotions we have trouble allowing ourselves to feel. Dogs are one of the greatest gifts given in this life. For many people, they are the only friend or family. The courageous life companion. The faithful confidant. The quiet listener. The playful distraction. The joyful example. Dogs make life better in every way, and I simply cannot imagine my life without them!
