“A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor, big or small, young or old.

He doesn't care if you're not smart, not popular, not a good joke-teller,

not the best athlete, nor the best-looking person.

To your dog, you are the greatest, the smartest,

the nicest human being who was ever born.

You are his friend and protector.”
~Louis Sabin~

How true that is... and that is why I'm a dog person. Unswavering love, loyalty and devotion - and SUCH adorable faces!

Provided you find the right dog! I have one of each, devoted and loyal then the other one was totally off his head!!!

They also don't care if you are fat or thin....thank goodness. A stroke, a walk, a kind word, and regular meals are all they need to be happy. If only people were like that!

What a cute he your, Ruth? The quote is true of all pets, I think. We are out and about a fair amount, and the cats always give us a warm welcome home. They are always in the same mood too, not huffy or angry or stubborn or crabbit, but, generally, happy.

The dog is Max; he is owned by (or should I say owns) Lynn & Steve (daughter and son-in-law)

I like that doggie, actually I like both of them.

I'll raise a little glass of Brandy with you in honor of man and woman's best friend.

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
