Dogging Around

Have you ever noticed how human and animal behaviour is so similar that sometimes it’s difficult to distinguish between the two? Look at the way a dog tilts his head when curious, and correspond that with the way your daughter tilts her head when she doesn’t want to hear what it is you are saying. When your puppy stares into your eyes dolefully, begging you not to leave him, I’m sure you can see your lover in his eyes, asking you to stay just a little longer. Look at the way your cat purrs when content, and the way she gently rubs her head against your arm and think of your baby, contentedly cooing and cuddling deep in your arms. Thus next time you angrily despair about the flower bed that’s been dug up I’m sure you will understand the small cry for attention that your animal companion displays.
