True Love in Dogs

It has always been said that man's best friend is a dog.

This is perhaps because they give unconditional love, like a child, to their owner. Even if a person is cruel to their dog, they still seem to love their "master".

I have two male dogs and I am constantly amazed at the generous, loving personality of both of these dogs.

I have written articles about them before, however when I walked in the room and saw the almost blind whippet, lying virtually on top of the German Shorthair Pointer, I was amazed!

The GSP did not seem to mind - this is a pair of dogs who take food from each others bowls, and the dog who's bowl it is, does not object.

I find this a very rare trait in a dog as previously I have had to separate dogs when they are eating as they tend to "have a go at" the dog who tries to pinch their food.

I do not know whether the older dog understands that his young brother has a problem (i.e. almost blind), however I don't think so.

Dash, the whippet is going blind and at night, seems to be totally blind. It is heartbreaking when I lie in bed and I hear these "bangs" as this dog bumps into furniture.

Happily, he no longer has as many sores on his legs where he was obviously scraping them outside.

I keep taking photos at the love that seems to exist between these two dogs -or is it my imagination?

I find that males, oddly enough, seem to get on better when living together. Perhaps it is because they understand the pecking order in the household.

Paw over means dominance?

I have been accused of treating the dogs like children and have even received an email from one of my sons attaching a letter from a person who's mother treats her dogs better than she did the children -has more patience, and plays with them more -I am guilty as charged as there is something about a faithful dog that I just cannot resist!

Do dogs kiss?



When it is cold, they snuggle up together on the one bed.

Is this reassurance?

When Pinno was younger, they used to play together a lot.

Dogs are such wonderful pets, and I do not know how I could live without one or two.
