There are a million lessons to be learned from the way our animals love us, but the one that I keep coming back to is this: Give your love away to those in your life, give it even when they don’t return it, give it especially when they don’t deserve it. Give your love, your kindness, and your grace to those people you let into your life and show them what loyalty means. In no way does this mean allowing people to hurt you or walk on you, watch how quickly a dog will defend itself or those they love when someone threatens, but it means those that have earned your heart, deserve to be given it time and time again. Dogs make us love, and loving makes us more. There is no other way to say this.
