Dogs are seriously the best animals ever. If you look deeply into their eyes you know that they are just little sweet spirits placed into cuddly soft fur. They must be gifts given from God to help us humans down here on earth.
A relationship with your dog is so special because there is just absolute unconditional love. You can freely say anything, do anything, be anything and they still love you deeply. They are always the perfect buddy to have by your side through anything.
I get to babysit my parent’s dogs this weekend. All though, I count them as my dogs because I do not have one all to my own yet. They don’t seem to mind having more people lovin’ on them. We have Lady Guinevere and King Arthur, a match made in heaven. Lady Guinevere is two and a gorgeous sheltie. She enjoys playing with her fox toy and chasing after golfers. She still thinks that she is a herding dog and will nip at your heels occasionally, but after politely explaining that you are not a sheep she appeases. King Arthur is a mix of things that we don’t quite know. Arthur was a rescue and the first rescue that I have ever had, and is definitely something I want to do again. I could not ask for a sweeter more attentive dog. When you sit on the couch he will immediately hop up right beside you. And don’t ever think of moving away to give yourself some breathing room, he will scooch right there with you. Personal space is not in his vocabulary.
Genny and Arthur really love to hang out, fighting over toys and fighting for attention. In a lovingly way, my family and I joke that it is like Beauty and the Beast since Genny is full bred Sheltie and Arthur is a strange, but cute mix. All of his hair is rough besides one little tuft of hair in the middle of his head. Perfect for mohawks.
The one and only negative thing I have to say about dogs is their love for licking. Especially my dogs, I have no idea why their tongues seem to be longer than any other dogs. But, besides that I give a glowing report for all dogs. They have an uncanny way of knowing when something is wrong and when their assistance is needed. They serve as a friend, blanket, confidant, and workout partner.
I think human’s love for dogs shows us how much we need love in our lives. The meanest of mean people have dogs and absolutely love them dearly. I have visibly seen a women’s demeanor transform once her dog entered the room. That’s strong stuff.
Give your dogs some love, and have their friendship forever…
