Humans have a relationship with dogs going back many years. At one time, the dogâ€™s main function for humans was to act as a hunting partner â€“ the human tracking down prey with the help of the dog, then killing it and the dog retrieving it. over time, the emotional link between humans and dogs became more social, and has evolved to the point where we simply keep dogs as pets â€“ our special friends who never become enemies due to a petty squabble. Humans have a lot to say about dogs, ad have said it in some wonderful ways.
Mabel Louise Robinson, a writer, once said that from a dogâ€™s point of view, its master was â€œan elongated and abnormally cunning dogâ€ â€“ which sums up the pack mentality, as does Holbrook Jacksonâ€™s line that man is â€œa dogâ€™s idea of what God should beâ€. Dogs are popular, in many cases, because they see humans as someone to look up to, and this kind of devotion is attractive to anyone. Dogs are unquestioning, as noted by the unknown author of the quote â€œone reason a dog is such comfort when youâ€™re felling low is that he doesnâ€™t attempt to find out whyâ€.
There is a tendency among humans to refer to their dogs as being like another human being, but the author John Holmes feels that this is unfair to our four-legged friend. A dog, he said, is not almost human, â€œand I can find no greater insult to the canine raceâ€ than to describe it so. Dogs may well be easily pliable and respond well to training, but each has its own personality and mind. Do not try to train this out of your dog, as that is what makes them special.
