Many would agree that owning a dog bears similarities with one of a child. They both depend on their caregivers for love, food and security. They are always at the forefront of our mind despite the hectic schedules. You’d rush home to feed, coddle and play with them. Sometimes, you’d even wake up in the middle of the night to check if they’re still breathing (given those dead-like sleeping positions!).
You say it all the time: “I love you”, but are our sentiments one-sided? Sometimes I do wish that I had Doctor Dolitte’s ability to communicate with animals – Things would be so much easier, don’t you think?
But fret not! The good news is – dogs do feel our love and affection all the time, as long as you are sincere. They can be subtle, but it isn’t too hard to catch. What about your expreriences with saying I love you? Any stories to share?
