“The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.” — Andy Rooney
Probably true. I never met a dog I didn’t like, but I certainly encountered a lot of dudes (and dudettes) I didn’t care for.
Dogs are much easier to approach than humans. Most of the time, they will greet you with a smile (tongue sticking out) and a wag of the tail. The same cannot be said for people, especially on a first encounter.
Talking about encounters… if you want to meet your soulmate, get a pooch. Dogs are “love ambassadors”. Get a dog and take him/her to a public place. Soon or later, a potential mate will approach you and start a conversation. And often, a simple exchange can lead to many fruitful results.
Dog people have a special bond that allows them to communicate effortlessly with like-minded people. Since I cannot resist petting a furry beast, I do it all the time and I have never been rebuffed.
Dogs, unlike humans, will love you as much (probably more) than when you initially met. In the dog’s world, a “hookup” is unbreakable; after you have formally been introduced, you are bound for life. Words like breakup, uncoupling, or divorce, don’t exist. There are just human-made-up pretexts for betrayal.
“The world would be a nicer place if everyone could love as unconditionally as a dog.” – M.K. Clinton
To my everlasting regret though, I never owned a dog… Life circumstances prevented me from doing so, but I have a lot of canine friends… Of all shapes, sizes, and colors. Each time we meet, no matter how long we have been apart, it is a love fest; in the dog world, time is irrelevant.
I never met a dog I didn’t like, and I have 243 pictures of different hounds on my computer to prove it… More than some members of my family. To me, a dog is as captivating as a human being, and I will keep taking pictures of dogs any chance I get.
Another quote and I will be (temporally) done talking about my four-legged friends.
“Handle every situation like a dog. If you can’t eat it or play with it, just pee on it.
