“Dogs didn’t become “man’s best friend” for no reason. The friendship between man and dog has gone back thousands of years.”
This let me think about the two lovely guys in our guesthouse, where we lived during our holidays in Cape Town (Bloubergstrand). I remembered that we had shot a couple of beautiful photos of them, which I chose today to show you. These 2 real friends joined us every day. We had such a good friendship with them. They called Captain & Morgan. But even with this good company, we really missed our dog. Because she is really part of our small family. It’s incredible how much she gives us. I know that every dog, we treat well, will give us unconditional love.
Dogs have been loyal to us. But some people would say dog are loyal just because they depend on us for food and shelter, so they have to be nice to us. But when you see how dogs react when their humans and canine friends come back after they’ve been gone for a while or when they don’t come back at all, you know it’s about more than food.
Dogs are pack animals. They want to belong to a pack, whether it’s made up of dogs or humans, or pretty much any animal. Dogs aren’t loners. When they lose a member of a pack, even temporarily, they feel that a part of them is missing.
Dogs want to love and be loved, which I think deep down is what all of us want. They want to be part of a pack, contribute to their pack, and protect their fellow pack members.
I can always count on my dog. But can our dogs count on us?
It’s time we return the favor. Please, think about it…they are our best friends!!!
See you next time
