Are you really taking good care of your dog? Let’s not forget that they’re totally dependent on us for their food, shelter, health and well-being. We took them away from nature and made pets out of them, and in doing so, we let them forget how to survive on their own. Let’s never forget that a dog is like a little baby, needing us through their entire lives.
The great thing about it, though, is that every ounce of energy we put into taking good care of our dogs comes back to us as tons and tons of uninhibited love. They look at you with those big eyes as though you were their whole life? Why? Because you ARE their whole life. Let’s return as much of that love as we can. Let’s brush their teeth, learn about good canine nutrition, make sure they are properly trained, give them plenty of exercise, not let them roam, pay regular visits to the vet, and just use some good sense about taking care of our very best friends.
