Seventeen years of unconditional love.
A dear friend wrote this after the transition of her beloved dog Tucker. Yes. Dogs are unconditional love…and loyalty and so much more. They teach us how to be present to this moment, the only one we have. They teach us about the simple joys of companionship and the pleasures of the natural world.
They are also resilient and forgiving. I admit that I’m a sucker for dog rescue videos and always amazed at how quickly abandoned and abused dogs respond to love. It seems they can easily leave behind those scars while we humans tend to carry that baggage around for the rest of our lives. We can learn a lot from dogs.
Reflecting on our beloved canine companions with their unconditional love, the idea landed about having a dog for president. Yes. It’s an outrageous and totally unrealistic idea. But how much better would that be than the current administration which is the very manifestation of unconditional hate?
