Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent . To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring, it was peace.
A person can learn a lot from a dog. My dog taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things, walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall , a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.
World we live in:
Unfortunately There are about 13,600 community animal shelters across the U.S. managing an intake of about 7.6 million pets ever year. And how many animals actually leave the system in that span? Around 2.7 million.
Have you visited a shelter lately?
A shelter dog is a scared dog. For a dog, the shelter is an immediate sensory overload. A dizzying diversity of scents, sounds and strangers. Take one home. And, for an overall joyful feeling that washes over both dog and human nicely, never underestimate the transformative power of foster care.
Please remember that dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.
