The Unconditional Love of Dogs

January 16th, 2008 · No Comments

People of all ages, sex, and ethnicities are happy owners of dogs. I don’t know the exact statistic, but I bet at least 1 in 3 families in America own a dog. So why do so many people own dogs. Why do our children beg us for a puppy every Christmas? There must be a good reason, right?

Well, for me, our dogs bring us joy, happiness and unconditional love. What other mammal on this planet will go nuts every single time you come home from a long days work. Your husband or wife probably gives you a kiss or a hug every now and then. But do they jump up and down in pure excitement from the mere fact that you just came home from work? Does your spouse lick you uncontrollably because they haven’t seen you in 8 hours? Probably not, and if they do, you might want to question you marriage decision. But I bet your dog does all the above and more every time you come home from a long days work. Or how about this. You just caught your dog chewing on the corner of your brand new couch. I’m sure we would all be pretty upset. After finding out your dog’s little mischievous course of actions, you scold your dog and send them with their head down and tail between their legs. However, I bet 5 minutes later your dog will come running up to you in complete excitement if you call their name with enthusiasm. Try doing that with a 5 year old child. You would probably get a temper tantrum and a lego in your face! That’s the beauty of the canine species. They will love you like none other and give you the greatest loyalty you will ever experience.

Every time I come home, even if I just leave for the grocery store, I can be assured to come home to wagging tails, bright open eyes, and smiles with tongues hanging out. All my dogs gather at the door as soon as I pull up to the drive way. It amazes me the kind of senses that dogs have. I swear that they can sense me coming from a block away because my fiancé says they wait at the door about 2 minutes before I even get home. Kind of eerie, but I think it’s pretty cool. Anyway, as soon as I open the door, I’m bombarded by a gang of furry little dogs all waiting to get my attention. It’s almost overwhelming, but as soon as I come home to such happy faces, no matter how bad my day went, I immediately cheer up when I see someone else so excited to see me. You see, our dogs don’t care what we’ve done in life. They don’t care if you were just laid off or if you just totaled the new car. None of that matters. The only thing that matters is that you are their owner and they love you for it.

So if you go home tonight and your dog starts to their ritual of over active tail wagging and licking, spend some extra time playing with them. Spend some extra time rubbing their belly or playing tug of war. They work hard everyday to please you, so give them a little reward for loving you so much.
