For the Love of Our Best Friend

The Benefits of DoggieLawnPhoto: Doggie Lawn

Dog has been a man’s best friend.  A protector and follower.  A friend who will make you feel secured and protected.  A friend who will give joy and care.  A friend who will be there when you are in despair.

Recently, our neighbor just saved a lost dog roaming around the street.  The dog seemed to be like a German shepherd, scared, and can sense that we care. That is why the dog did not run away, nor show aggressiveness, nor bark, and even followed our neighbor to her house.  How amazing to know how strong their senses are, how they can sense people who care.  For lost dogs, you can check out the Lost Pet Recovery System. 

Whenever I see a dog, it reminds me of the dogs who became part of my life Prixie, Berry, Nera or Cookie (who just died this January).  You can check my previous posts on them by clicking their names.

Dogs are adorable.  They can make you feel secured and protected.  I can vividly remember how we were protected by Nera, a breed of Dobermann and Rottweiler.  She was big and barked loud that made strangers scared to get near our gate.  Yet, Nera was friendly to those who care for her.

If you live alone and lonely, it will be helpful to have a dog.  It was believed that dogs help absorb the negative energy.  They have strong senses.  They can sense love, care, maltreatment and danger.  They were trained to sniff drugs and now to sniff out coronavirus.  They can even sniff out coronavirus far better than machines or tests [1].     There were studies on the benefits of pet therapy for our physical and mental health [2].  You can check out some research findings at Animal-Assisted Therapy Research.

I understand the cravings of meat lovers, which I was brought up to eating meat.  But once you look onto the eyes of a dog, you will sense that they also have emotions, and they will make you feel how helpless they are, that they need humans for them to survive and be protected.  I can’t imagine why people still patronize the Yulin festival.  If you want to help save the dogs and other animals, you can check out the Humane Society International
