2684Even if your dog doesn’t have a heart on her cheek, the way my dog, Sky, did when she was a puppy, he still has his heart on his sleeve.  Here’s how I know this…

Dogs make people feel better about themselves.

Dogs make people act better toward each other.

Dogs display their feelings flat out.  There is no hidden agenda, no sarcasm, no spite.  What you see is what your dog feels.

Dog help us form social networks, both in real life and in cyberspace.

Even when they don’t understand our words, dogs always understand our feelings.

Dogs let us feel more deeply than we are sometimes about to do on our own.

Dogs encourage us to share our feelings, as they share theirs.

Dogs don’t judge feelings.  They accept them, and when appropriate, the act on them.
