My best friend and I were having a conversation the other day about dogs vs. human kids.
She’s the only person in my life that understands how much love I have for my four legged furry children and we both treat our dogs like they are human kids.
She made a decision a long time ago that she didn’t want human kids. She always had dogs and they are her kids.
Even though in the future I do want to create tiny humans for right now I’m good with my dogs.
The great thing about dogs is that they give you unconditional love. You never have to wonder if they love you or not. Through the good, bad and ugly they love you more than themselves. You won’t get that type of love from any other human being.
You spend all this time raising human kids and worrying if you’re doing it the right way only for them to eventually go through a phase of hating or resenting you.
From 13-18 I didn’t get along with my parents. It’s a tough age for all teenagers but girls are worse. We’re hormonal little know it all’s and it sucks.
With dogs you don’t have to worry about that. They don’t go through stages of hating their parents.
Because of this no matter what I will always make sure to have a dog or 2 part of my family. Everyone should experience what unconditional love is in their lifetime.
On a side note a husbands family member got a Doberman and I met him yesterday for the first time and fell in love. It was so bad that his family member literally said “Rachel don’t think about taking my dog.” It’s like he read my mind cuz I would if I could. Here’s a picture of him.
Are you a dog person? Let me know in the comments.
