Most times we ask ourselves what did the humans do to deserve dogs. But the answer to this question is probably love and compassion, as dogs branch out from the little less afraid wolves that came closer to people and their night fires, and were fed by them without having much need to hunt.
So dogs are, most likely, our first genetically modified organisms, only we didn’t use science nor technology, but simply our natural reaction of love and compassion toward a fellow living being that was hungry.
We all love dogs!
They are eyes for a blind person, positivity for a depressed one, and a best friend who loves all of us unconditionally.
But they don’t live as much as humans. Why is that?
This 6 year old kid has the best answer anyone has ever given:
A confession by one veterinarian:
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten year old Irish wolfhound, named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife Lisa and their little boy Shane were all very attached to Belker and they were hoping for a miracle. I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer.
I told the family there were no miracles left for Belker and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.
