Man's Best Friend makes me happy!
This is not one of our dogs. But I can be touched by the beauty in the canine form, and particularly the feeling that evolve when I see certain dogs that look so regal, or wise, or sweet, or needy.
This particular photo gives me the feeling of security.
His name is Gentry. He looks strong, wise, & loyal.
He gives me the feeling of being safe in his presence. That he would protect me to the death, sort of like the hero in women's romance novels. It's a very contented feeling.
Most dogs in general, whether a specific breed or generic (mutt), give me comfort.
I never had kids and never wanted them. Animals are the only being that bring out my maternal instinct.
Gentry is a 2 year old Beauceron. He is bred and owned by Chris, who is replacing our carpeting with vinyl/fiberglass flooring. He's brought a couple of his dogs over a few times.
