Goose Poop Connoisseur
Very well said; absolute and pure true love. Thank you very much.Your dog will never treat you poorly out of spite.
Your dog will never attack or mistreat you out of malefaction.
Your dog will never spread false rumors about you, or lie about you for benefit.
Your dog will never take the last piece of pie just to keep you from getting it.
These are activities that are limited to human to human relationships.
It goes, unfortunately, into the mix when mourning for the passing of another human.
Inevitable baggage, in the back of the mind, but there nonetheless.
A Dog, who gave selflessly all of their love and devotion, and asked nothing in return but to be treated fairly as a ward and companion, a decision made entirely by you and not with his consent, has no baggage to bring to the contemplation of their passing.
