Blog Log #2: What Dogs Teach Us

Read the article here.

I was originally interested by this article because it is on the subject of pets. I am pursuing veterinary medicine as a future career, so this is a subject that I enjoy reading about. I appreciated how the author took a darker subject, human issues, and revealed how to improve them through watching how other species act. I also enjoyed how the article was serious, but contained humorous parts. I agree with his perspective on life; humans judge other humans for their gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, and more. Dogs, however, judge others by their actions, and teach us to love. Sometimes, when I feel upset, I go hug my dog. She emits rays of happiness, and that happiness transfers to everyone she meets. I feel we can all learn from dogs to improve our lives.
