Dogs are purveyors of wisdom, the wisdom of love
This is the opinion of Jeffrey Mason, author of Dogs never lie about love, and we tend to agree, what do you think ? Here is an extract from his book (When asked for his permission to include this extract, Jeff replied : "Of course! Delighted! Totally agree with your dog-oriented philosophy!" )
"... there is some profound essence, something about being a dog, which corresponds to our notion of an inner soul, the core of our being that makes us most human ... this has to do with our ability to reach out and help a member of another species ... even when we do not stand to benefit from the other; in short, to love the other for its own sake. If any species on earth shares this miraculous ability, it is the dog, for the dog truly loves us ... beyond what we deserve, more indeed than we love ourselves.
Because the soul of a dog is love, the dog can love other animals, itself and us, with a completeness, a purity and an intensity, that we can admire and learn to emulate."
His new book "The dog who couldn't stop loving" is out now, we can't wait to get it !
