Today is National Dog Day.  I don’t know why.  Somebody decided it should be.

 

That somebody might as well be me because I think every day should be National Dog Day.  

 

I have a fondness for dogs.  Always have. Well, as long as I can remember.

 

Joe Duncan writes in his article  The Psychology of Why We Love Dogs on Medium.com that “We know in our core, that we are judged by other people.”  He says that other people give us “The Look.”  And we love dogs because, while they may look at us, they don’t ever, ever give us “The Look.”

 

I think he’s on to something.

 

No matter how other people will judge me; no matter how I will judge myself; my dog will never judge me.  I am enough for my dog.
