Man’s Best Friend
She might not understand too much English but she sure can understand body language, tone, emotions, and definitely tears.
The tears started to flow and Nylah was over in a shot offering her paw, putting her head up for a rub, giving the big brown eye treatment…being man’s best friend.
An occasional acknowledging pat will not cut it for our dog…she is the ultimate physical touch dog. She will nudge and nudge and nudge every time you stop rubbing her. I am not sure who is really getting the best therapy here…her or her humans, but, whichever, it worked and the tearful felt loved.
Somedays her insatiable need for physical affection can drive me nuts but today I was filled with gratefulness as I watched her meet a need.
