My best relationship ever was with two girls… at the same time. Neither was jealous of the other. Both were loyal, protective, and wanted nothing more than my love and to be with me. They never complained or asked for anything.
They were beautiful, perfectly proportioned, and intelligent. They were playful, humorous, and fun. As soon as we got into bed, one snuggled next to me on my left and the other on my right. It was wonderful.
Their love for me was unconditional and seemingly eternal. No other person or thing was more important to them than me. And I deeply loved them too.
Although their lineage was from different ethnicities, they never quarreled or competed. The three of us lived together harmoniously without any problems. When I came home, they greeted me at the door with enthusiasm and love.
They, together, represented my best relationship ever. It was magnificent! It was peaceful, uplifting, and joyous.
Both of the girls where vastly different toy breed dogs. Sounds weird I know, but let me explain. If you’re a dog lover, I know that not as much explanation is required. Before I get into my reasoning, here’s a little background.
I’ve always liked dogs. But before this experience, I never loved a dog or allowed one to sleep in my bed let alone two! I was surprised to discover that a dog’s natural desire to sleep next to humans provided amazing comfort. Although it was challenging at times, and I will likely train future puppies to sleep off the bed nearby, it was definitely worth the experience.
Here’s my theory about dog and human relationships.
I feel that we humans can learn a lot from the love and devotion dogs give us without condition or measure. And our response to it in the love and devotion we give back to them. If you think about it, it’s truly astonishing.
What would happen if we loved in the way dogs love us? What kind of response would we get? What kind of relationship would we create?
As humans, we, of course, have an initial evaluation period when we hold back. This is smart for many reasons. But after you determine their character (article) and intent, going all-in might make a huge difference in the quality, enjoyment, and success of a relationship. If you observe what dogs get back from us, imagine what two humans might create between them. It certainly seems worth consideration.
A dog, of course, can never replace human connection, but they can certainly come close and even match or exceed it in a few areas. And they can surely teach us a few things about love, devotion, and relationship.
If you prefer flying solo (articles) or you’re alone for another reason, a puppy or two can certainly enhance your life. I guarantee it.
