When you have a dog, you don’t have to worry about a lot of things, he’s your alarm clock, your home security system, and if you train him well enough, the one who fetches you slippers and newspaper. When it comes to pets, dogs are the go to option if you want something more than an animal to look at, while cat’s are adorable they often just do their own thing. Dog’s on the other hand having always been loyal since the beginning of man and dogs friendship, they have been with us since the time of great struggles and survival, until today’s easy going life.
When things go south and you are left homeless, most of the time your dog will stay with you, unless if you failed to raise it properly. They have evolved with man so closely together, that we bond with them to the level of being family, where we don’t leave each other behind. The thing is, nowadays a lot of people have forgotten the bond man and dog has with one another, thinking that as long as you feed an animal, they will be loyal to you. While that may be true for many other animals, dogs are different, while food does play a large part on how loyal it is to you, the most important thing for it is how you treated it while raising it. Much like a human child, if you raised them well in a loving way, they will never abandon you.
We have made it clear that dogs would never abandon humans that treat them well, so now it is time for us to pay their kind back, by taking in those who have been abandoned. Visit your local pound and animal shelter today and adopt a dog, I promise you that if you love and take care of it, you will never regret the day you took it home with you.
Last year I got a chocolate Labrador, but this was no ordinary Labrador, we named her Reese, because she a chocolate Labrador on the outside and nutty in the inside. Though Reese is a very playful and cheerful dog, her story is a sad one. We got Reese when she was already a year old, we learned that she was the dog of a loving old couple, she was taken care of well, one day though the old couple died. The relatives of the couple just left the dog in the property, they didn’t even bother leaving her any food, and it was only after a few days did the neighbors noticed that there was no one taking care of Reese.
The animal shelter took her in, the neighbors were unable to take care of her because their son had allergies, that is where we met her. Though she experienced something so terrible, we were told that she was very warm and playful when they rescued her, she was hungry but not aggressive, it was clear that she was loved as she never lost her trust in people even after experiencing abandonment. Her playfulness was the reason I took her home, as we needed a cheery member of the family.
Reese was able to settle in quickly and was immediately close to the family, unfortunately her playfulness proved to be a bit much sometimes. There was one time when I was already dressed for work and needed to get something out back, It rained the night before which made the back yard all muddy, when I opened the door she went out to play in the mud, and decided that I should have fun too and messed up my suit.
She also like playing with the cat, but the cat isn’t very fond of her way of playing, Though they usually get along we had to separate them permanently after the cat went wild around the house during one of Reese’s playful outburst. We let them be in the same room together every now and then though.
Funny enough, even though Reese is a very playful dog, who seldom behaves, she makes sure not to break anything in the house, though we do get a little accident every now and then.… Read the rest
