See, humans were never meant to live as long as we live. Through medicine and stuff like that, we have increased our life expectancy, as well as our pets. EVERY living creature on earth is only meant to be food for another creature, but humans have put this extreme value on life. Life was only ever meant to be "survival of the fittest", I know that sounds savage and all, but it's true. Everything dies and is meant to die, that's just the way it is.
We put so much love into our friendly pals because dogs can make a huge impact on our lives. We teach them tricks, while they teach us the true meaning of love and happiness. Dogs respect and love their owners to an amazing extent. And for that, we give our pets the gift of living their lives to the fullest as long as they can. Dogs can really change our perspective on life. While you may think we teach them, they really teach us.
