I'm not an insecure person. I don't need total admiration from anyone or anything. I don't need protection... I can protect myself
But I do need my dog. When I stroke her soft fur and see her run to greet me even though I've only be gone a few minutes... when I see this gentle creature bare her teeth at a stranger she feels might hurt me... I feel humble that this loyal creature picked me
Dogs are not people... thank goodness... they are dogs and will love you for who and what you are and never never will they betray you.
