Moments ago, I heard on the television an account of someone spending a fortune on health care for their dog. Why would they do this?
Cold dollars and cents analysis cannot support such action. A replacement pet would certainly cost a tiny fraction.
It must be LOVE!
Why do we love our dogs so much?
Is it because they’re so demonstrative? They seldom, if ever, hide their joy on seeing us. Who can resist the beguiling tail-wagging, the eyes aglow with delight, the happy licks, of a playful pooch.
Who else is a friend in all weathers, always there to support and comfort us?
And who else has eyes that reveal so much?
