Letter from my Dog..
Last PupIdol show with All Dogs Matter - Dexter the rescue & Eve
I appeared on earth about 100,000 years ago, and I am the first species to have been domesticated by man. I'll live an average of 11 years, 8 times shorter than you. My skeleton has about 300 bones, 94 more than you. I would always be more sporting and active than you.
MY SENSE of smell is far superior to yours, I have forty times more neuron devoted to my sense of smell than you.
MY HEARING and also much more developed than you, I can hear sounds 4 times farther than you, but also sounds that you do not even hear (ultrasounds).
MY VISUAL field is 100 degrees while you it is 140 degrees, I see less details of a static object, but, I have a peripheral vision superior to you, and so I better detect movements than you, for that I like when you throw the ball to me!
MY VISION perhaps blurry, and less color, but much better at night than you.
THE TOUCH is the hair, the eyebrows and the vibrisses (long hair of the muzzle), that I feel the contacts, even if my touch remains undeveloped, I easily make the difference between a caress and a correction, or the heat and cold.
MY TAST is not like a gastronome, it is rather the smell that counts first, I am therefore more gluttonous than true epicurean.
MY HEALTH is generally solid, but requires frequent consultations with the doctor of animals! (Veterinary)
MY EDUCATION is an apprenticeship that can be long in some cases, but I learn quickly, especially through positive reinforcement kindness and play. But I always keep a part of instinct does not forget it.
I SPEACK the human, but without saying a word! I can recognize up to 1000 words. I look for your look, I watch you to understand what is going on and find a solution, and I am the only animal to do that! In fact, your human world is too complex for you and me, so I do everything to help you, and I am an integral part of your family.
Finally and most important, and that's just for you:
Every morning I come to wake you up and I guess if you're okay or if you're sad. I am your silent confidants, your comfort, your support. For me you are my world.
I prove to you that you deserve to be loved, and I love you without any condition! I demand nothing of you and never judge you. I remain equal to myself, unlike you, I always accept a hug, and always answers when you call me.
I love you and just waiting for you to do the same!
So, before you decide to live with me and enjoy all my love, reread this letter well and I will be sure that you will never abandon me and will take care of me throughout MY DOG LIFE!
