Dogs remember. They remember when they will be fed. They remember when their owners will return from work. They remember which pieces of furniture are off-limits — although, they may not care to remember this lesson when their owners are away. And they also remember how people treat them. Disrespect or neglect a dog, and that dog will shy away from you or become aggressive. On the flip side of that, treat a dog with respect and care, and he will show you his gratitude by giving you love and attention. The photo on the right adds more proof to this concept. Since we don’t want to steal the short write-up about this human and canine embrace, click the picture to read the article and see a larger version of the photo. Woof.
