WHAT HUMANS CAN LEARN FROM DOGS


 

There are many ways in which we humans pride ourselves for being superior to other animals, and I’m not going to list them to consolidate this mindset. But I would like to mention at least one way in which a non-human animal is superior a human, and I’m not talking about the sense of smell.

Let me exemplify with a dog. Drea, our 3-year-old Boxer, like all dogs, at least compared to cats, is somewhat “needy”. When I’m home, she would always sit as near to me as possible. When I walk from the kitchen to the livingroom, I can be assured that there’d be six feet walking, not just two. And when I get ready to go out, she would be sitting by the door expectantly. When I close the door behind me, I would hear her whimper, and scratch on the door. 

The following is what differentiates the dog from the human.

When I come back home after a few hours, she would be right there at the door, wagging her tail a thousand beats a minute. All she’d be saying would be, “Welcome home! I’m so happy to see you!” Were she a human, what she might say could be, “Fuck you!”
