Dogs. They have always been a part of my life. I know I was very afraid of them when I was a child. The fear of certain dogs dictated the route I might take when walking or riding my bicycle to school.
When I look back on those dogs, I know that they were all just normal dogs that would bark at folks when they passed by their house. There were no “killer wolves” among our neighborhood, but at that time in my life I didn’t want to take the chance.
We had a pure bred Collie named, guess what?….Lassie who lived next door to us. She chased the school bus every single morning during the school year. I always wondered what she or another dog would do if they actually caught a bus or a car that they were chasing.
Then there was the German Shepherd down the street from us that the owner kept in a fence. I’m sure it was a nice enough dog, but it would bark when we went by the fence, and we were all sure that if somehow that dog got out it would have us for lunch. However, the owner was a short little girl who didn’t seem to think her dog was mean or big and bad. But that was our impression as kids.
Yeah, I felt like I lived eat dog corner. There were dogs all over our neighborhood and my comfort level with them was directly proportional to how much I knew them and how much interaction I had with them. But to their owners, they were precious parts of their family.
Man’s best friend. They aren’t called that for nothing. A dog has proven over and over to be a pet that will be one that will stand beside it’s owner, and protect, love, and be loyal to them for the length of the pet’s life.
I think God blessed us with pets like a good faithful dog. I have two of them. One is a poodle and one is a Maltipoo that might be considered as a designer dog. They are there when I feel good, when I don’t – when I’m healthy, and when I’m sick. They are fun companions to play with. They delight in the fact that you want to hang out and play with them.
