The Unconditional Love Of A Dog

October 10, 2019


Inspired by a video posted on Facebook today about a lioness and her human friend and the affection she shares with him, today we decided to revisit the eternal topic of unconditional love dogs have for their owners.

Most dog breeds have the cognitive ability of 2-3 year old children and although their understanding of the world may the limited, the emotions they have are not.

Scientists studying animals might not agree as to the extend of dogs’ emotional intelligence, but anyone who’s ever owned a dog knows how they respond to humans, with absolute, unconditional love, or at least an emotion we interpret as love.

We all know, for example, that Dobermans are fierce guard dogs, but did you know that Dobermans who grow up with children will protect those children even when their parents are trying to scold them?

Or, did you know that Pugs, which are not considered particularly intelligent, can not only recognize their owner after more than 4 years of separation, but go crazy for finally being reunited with them?

You can punish, abandon and sometimes even mistreat your dog and it will always come back running to you.

If you are considering adopting a dog, be sure it will bring the kind of joy into your household like very few life’s milestones can. It will put a smile on your face when you’re sad and entertain you to make you happy without ever asking for anything in return.
