Yeah they do goofy things now and then, dig holes, pee inside when you’re not looking, bark at nothing, eat birds and go suddenly deaf when you need them to listen, but when you look past their idiosyncrasies and look into the soul of the dog, a kinder, more compassionate being would be hard to find.
That they live their entire lives devoted to us-if we are kind in return is nothing short of amazing. Every dog has in the ability to love deeply, and without expectations other than the basics whomever it is that takes them in. Sure lots of them “love everybody,” but anybody who has chosen a dog as their companions will tell you that there is a bond like no other between dogs and people, especially the people that they choose to call their own.
When I look at Mr. Wilson living life on life’s terms I can’t help but slow things down, take in my surroundings, feel the sun shine on my shoulders and think how simple life truly is when you love unconditionally.
