we had pets at home by accident only: parrots, rabbits and fish back in russia and here , but nothing serious. it changed when Misha got Penny, a Maltese puppy and she had to stay with us while he was overseas twice a year... we have her for the third time now... this was the time i realised that dogs have the same soul as we, humans do, but it is placed in a different body - she keeps surprising us with her intellect and unusual solutions...
we will never understand dogs as they exist on a different plane from us, humans - we try to assign them our feelings but it might be unexplainable sometimes... we can only assume what they feel... there is only one thing -i treat her as a human with love and respect and she responds to me as a human very often.
russians say: if you want some unconditional love dont get married but get yourself a dog instead... although i have to admit some russian wives - they are like dogs - devoted, loving, forgiving and loyal... so what are we up to?
