Although there is lots of love in the world, sadly there is also hate. Dogs don't hate, they live in the now.
They dont care if you or another dog is a different colour or gender or where they grew up or if they only have 3 legs instead of 4.
They just go on what is right in front of them, in that instant. If another dog shows signs of submission, aggression, play or aloofness then they just deal with what they pick up on in that dogs behaviour. They dont hold it against them. They adjust their own behaviour accordingly at that moment. So if a bouncy lab approaches a husky and it tells them off as it doesn't want to play - they dont go away thinking "Them huskies sure are miserable, I hate Huskies, I'm gonna make sure I tell all my friends that they should stay away from Huskies".
So what if we learned from dogs, what if we took people for who they are regardless of if they are different to us? What if we opened our eyes and arms to difference and tried to find a common thread of understanding and appreciation? What if we were more Dog-Like?
I'm going to be more Dog.
So if you see me out and about chasing balls and sniffing dogs bums please dont judge me!!!
If you aren't convinced, just look at these photos of dog tolerance and love, its pure, its beautiful.
