A Dog's Spirituality
Dog is G-O-D spelled backwards. It's true that dogs demonstrate a very advanced spirituality that we humans should certainly study and put to good use.
First, dogs live in the moment. They don't worry about the future; they don't hold on to the past. They savor every moment of their lives. Just take a dog for a walk and you will see how much they love each moment.
Second, dogs are totally forgiving. Even many dogs who have been abused learn to love again. If you are in a grumpy mood, they will forgive it and continue to love you nonetheless.
Third, dogs are always happy to see you, no matter how badly your day has gone. After a long day at work, what could be better than coming home to an excited tail wagging critter excited to see you?
Fourth, dogs have a huge capacity for love, and they love unconditionally. No one will love you like your dog does.
Fifth, dogs are the most loyal beings you will encounter. There are endless tales of dogs saving their owners from drowning, fire and violence. I have even seen videos of dogs unwilling to live their deceased owner's grave.
Sixth, dogs are selfless. They will take on the orphaned infants of other animals and raise them as their own.
The only thing I can find that is really wrong about dogs is that they don't live nearly long enough. They will open your heart, give you endless love, and one day they will break your heart.
