Right. There is something I would like to ask you, my human readers. When we go out, we meet other people with their dogs. A lot of them, however, don’t pay any attention to their dog, but are looking at a strange black box. Sometimes they even talk to it. And no, they don’t appear crazy to me, at least, not all of them.
I do not understand. What can be more important than sniffing the day and enjoying the weather? Their dogs don’t always seem to mind, because without the attention they can do anything they like. Sniffing very long at a certain shrub or staring rudely at another dog, for instance.
But to be honest: this is not a satisfying way to go out with your human. We dogs like the companionship of other dogs, but we like to be with humans, too. Especially with the human we live with. And not only to be with him/her, but to go out together, to have Adventures together. A dog can have a very strong bond with its human and it is the most wonderful thing in the world. Me, for instance, I will do anything for M: I will protect her and bring her back stupid balls because she likes to throw them and find her pizza if she is hungry (although she never asked me, so until now I ate them all myself). She will protect me, give me food and shelter and a soft bed. We are buddies. That is what this dog-human-relationship-thing is for.
