“A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water logged stick will do just fine. A dog doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he’ll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?”
― John Grogan, Marley & Me
meet my best friend. my heart. my happiness. and my the most loyal being: my dog, alfie. i hate to leave him in the mornings and i look forward to coming back to him in the late afternoons. when i’m sad, he just knows and he comes to cuddle with me, lending me his happiness so i don’t have to be sad anymore. as i write this on a big couch with lots of room, he is cuddled up right beside me, touching me, making sure i’m there beside him.
why? because there’s nowhere else in the world he would rather be. see, a dog is the most loyal form of being on this earth. a dog seeks love from you, and in return, he will give you everything. it’s almost impossible to find that in man. it’s almost impossible to find a human who’s highlight of life is you. whether it’s cuddling with you, playing catch with you, getting a treat from you, taking a walk with you, licking away your tears, sharing your plate of food, or facing obstacles with you. a dog is content as long as his owner is with him, no matter what they face, as long as they are facing it together, a dog is the happiest.
a dog is full of pure and genuine love, he’s just finding the right person to give it to.
