Dogs don’t care about our weight, wrinkles, social status or our past mistakes. They just wag their tails and welcome us home. As any dog owner knows, to be greeted with such an enthusiastic display of affection makes a bad day tolerable and a good day even better.
Dogs see the best in us even on our worse days. If everyone drove like the people our dogs believe us to be, we would have fewer accidents and road rage incidents.
We should all strive to be as good human beings behind the wheel as our dogs think we are. As author Mary Ann Evans, better known by her pen name George Eliot says, “We long for an affection altogether ignorant of our faults. Heaven has accorded this to us in the uncritical canine attachment.”
