While all this is true, I think that we lose sight of the care that our dogs provide us. For me personally, the feeling I get each time I come home and am greeted by my dog is pretty fantastic. In fact, I would take it one step further and say that I think dogs have pretty amazing powers, otherwise how can a lick on the face, wag of the tail, and snuggle be so mood altering?
Dogs seem to have the power to turn things around. We all have bad days, but coming home to a dog that waits all day to see you is pretty incredible. How can your troubles not disappear when you are encountered by so much pure joy and love?
Truth is…we are not the only caregiver. Dogs are much more insightful then they get credit for. It’s been said that dogs not only feed off our human energy, but also, they have the ability to react to our energy. Sometimes, it is as though they know what we need more than we do.
