July 20: Animals: Pets or Not
“I’ve seen a look in dogs’ eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.” – John Steinbeck
Having a pet is such an enriching experience. Dogs are the proverbial best friends a human can have. They are faithful and loyal. Sticking with their humans through thick and thin. But that’s not too say that they don’t have their opinion about their humans! Some think that their human is nuts while others think that their human companions are the best in the world.
What does your pet/ dog things about you?
“You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, ‘Wow, you’re right! I never would’ve thought of that!’” – Dave Barry
If dogs are the best pets humans can have the case with cats is the exact opposite. They feel that humans are there to serve them and they make themselves available for petting only when they feel like it. Biting/ scratching the hand that feeds them was perhaps invented for the cats that own the human. We even classify humans as dog people and cat people!
Which are you?
