What could be more rewarding than giving a second chance to a homeless dog whose family moved and decided not to take him along or one born a stray in an empty warehouse or give your love to a dog from an abused home. Whatever his story, there is a dog out there who wants to put his sad life chapters behind him and write a happy ending with you.
Adopting a dog from a shelter is another scope for finding a perfect partner at home. Do not fear of bringing a ‘damaged material’ to home. Shelter Dogs are often very loving and eager to win your heart. You are not only giving a grateful pooch a new leash of life, you will gain a faithful friend who will brighten your every single day.
I assure everyone that if you bring such kinds of dogs home, your life will change for the good. Arthur Conan Doyle once said that ‘a dog reflects family life’. Dogs make our lives complete. Its amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our world. They teach us about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. They teach us to appreciate every single little thing- a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall etc. As they grow old and achy, they teach us how to show optimism in the face of adversity. They show selflessness and above all unwavering loyalty. So why need a human partner when animals are so much better?
In today’s world, to be on the top requires immense hard work. Work for unending hours, no food, no quality sleep, no space, no outings and relaxation. In such situations, one craves for some companionship. Any kind of comraderie is welcome. One who listens calmly as you vent out your everyday frustrations, someone you can unabashedly crib to after a tiring bad day at work, someone who will never complain, always be there beside you, everyday, punctually, whom you can share your happiness and achievements with. They will never be angry on you, never backstab you, never show jealousy and will never fake this friendship. This is where a pet dog comes to your rescue, showering unending love, faith, honesty, loyalty and joy. There is no other source of comfort than a pet at home. Choosing the correct one according to your convenience is all that you need to do.
A dog remains on your side from the main door of the house, wagging its tail, jumping over-enthusiastically like it’s been waiting for long extended years. It gives you company as you contemplate the bigger mysteries of life. The best thing about dogs are that they know exactly what you need from them, they leave no opportunity to impress you. If you are in a happy mood, they will love to play with you. If you need comfort they will comfort you with a rub or a nudge. If you want solitude, they will switch on to become silent onlookers. They will give you all that they are capable of without irritating or disturbing you. A dog will follow you blindly. Whichever command you give, hey are always at your beck and call.
Dogs are trustworthy. You go out with your entire family, keeping your dog at guard; no burglar will dare to break inside. Your dog will sit bold and strong on the main entrance, with his big, angry eyes sparkling in the darkness,thus scaring away every possible intruder. Never will they think of coming back again.
There are many couples who plan to buy a new dog immediately after marriage. Since, they are always tensed about the safety of their newborn. Besides, there is also your dog who needs attention frequently. Whom to give more time? How to make the dog accustomed to this new family member? Your pet dog is an excellent babysitter. They are loyal and protective. Nobody’s going to hurt your baby when your dog is curled up around him. Your baby will grow up to become a wonderful person if kept in contact with your dog because they are highly inculcated with moral values which babies will learn quickly from them.
Dogs are also great friends of the elders. Growing old is an inevitable part of this journey of life which everyone undertakes. It comes with a reduction of worldly duties and responsibilities. But sadly, it also comes with a fair share of health troubles, slow recovery, onset of isolation, less quality time with the family etc. Pet dogs are the best effective way of combating lonliness and keeping the vulnerable heart healthy. Dogs understand them. They take love as well as give love. They bond up with the elders easily by giving a patient ear for everything they have to say and repeat and dogs respond sincerely. Your dog will make them feel wanted. They uplift their spirits, keep their morales high. They ensure their safety and comfort. Communication between the two becomes a regular feature of their daily schedules. Dogs treat the elders sensitively which keeps them calm; this is a proficient support system when the person’s health is degrading fast. Your pet dog is a passive companion to everyone who needs them the most.
So when you have an all-rounder doggy partner at home, independent, caring, honest and a good listener, why do you need somebody else? Because no other human being can assure you with the permanency of your relationship, but dogs can. Not a single person is trustworthy but a dog is. Every single person acts superficially but a dog never does. Every single person is bound to change but a dog? Now you know the answer.
