Yes, indeed. Thanks for posting that RonE.

And if I might add, in my personal opinion ....


Dogs are NOT
  • here to fulfill our foolish egos. They are not playthings meant to be utilized only when it serves our own selfish purpose, and ignored otherwise.
  • creatures that see everything through a lens of either black or white. We need to tailor our perceptions, and come to understand and accept the many shades of grey that will always be prevalent in a dog's mind
  • merely high scores or ribbons or titles or bloodlines or brags or stepping stones to pave the path of fortune in our lives.

Dogs ARE
  • sentient beings worthy of our respect, compassion, love and admiration.
  • our partners in LIFE, 24 / 7 / 365. Not just during daily walks, in the classroom, on the training field or in the competition ring.
  • a true and undeniable reflection of our own personality.
  • arbiters of honesty, and of virtue, and God's greatest gift to us all.

I'll add:

Dogs are individuals - just like people.

Dogs deserve to be allowed to be dogs. Denying them doggy emotions, doggy behaviors, etc, is just as bad as locking a child in a basement for years.
