Who ever said you need a dog was right! Words cannot express how much dogs can bring to your life. The bountiful unending joy starts as soon as you see them and it stays with you forever. While dogs don’t talk like we do, they reach us beyond mere words.
Dogs make great companions, because they mold their lives into yours in ways that you don’t see coming. Before you know it, your furry master has trained you into their very own dog parent. They use their eyes to melt our hearts, their ears perk up when they hear you talk, their tail wags when they see you. There is no comparison to how your house is full of love just by having your dog inside oozing their pure love everywhere.
While their fur may get stuck on your clothes, just know that’s their way of staying with you all day. Each hair a legacy of love to keep you strong. Their warm and genuine greeting when you get home can cheer the darkest of days into sunshine inside your heart. While I’ve read dogs don’t like to be hugged, my dog puts up with my hugs daily and comes back for more.
She teaches me that stretching in the morning is good for toning muscles. Having naps is divine, but going to bed early at night is what dreams are made of. Never fear when your dog is on duty, for they will hear even the slightest of silent door openings — and you better have a treat for them too with your late night snack as they peer at you when you thought they were sleeping.
God knew exactly what He was doing when he created dogs. He took a piece of Himself and wrapped it in fur so we would know what divine love is, how to feel it, and see it in action. The love He has for us is conveyed to us in the eyes of a dog who loves us more than life itself. We have the best companions that teach us joys and sorrows as they stand by our side no matter the dilemma.
Life is a journey better taken with love by your side.
