The Importance of dogs


"So often, we — dogs and humans — just need to be near each other. We need the presence of another heartbeat, the inhale and exhale of another soul. Dogs understand the healing power of having your skull kneaded, and constantly raise their heads toward our hands, the way plants turn toward the sun."

From My Life as a Dog by Dana Jennings. The New York Times, September 15, 2009.
