Copper, “It’s all about me”
Lauren (mom), “You’re absolutely right!”
If you’re a dog owner you’ll relate to your pup wanting to be fed, eager to fetch, ready for walking, longing for his/her belly rubbed, anxious to play and cuddle, i.e. it’s all about them! It’s up to us, their owners, to provide the best, loving home so they feel safe and secure.
However, when you flip the coin, our time with them is more about us because all they want is to please their owners; to make their families happy. They look at us with those eyes that melt our hearts from the first meeting and there’s no turning back. They can sense our moods and they have our backs.
I’ll use one example using my dog, Copper, when he hears any of his family crying. He’ll walk over to us, rest his head on our leg and look up with his amber eyes as if to say, “I’m here for you.”
Their unconditional love is a gift to be cherished. If you’re a dog or cat owner, I’d love to hear your thoughts, too. ♥
I would like to thank Jean at https://socialbridge.wordpress.com/ for tagging me in this photo challenge.
Here are the rules for the “Five Photos Five Stories” challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.
(I’m unable to post each day so mine are days apart, which is alright if posting each day is difficult for you, too.)
My second nomination for the challenge is Scott over at http://worldiction.com/.
