Just another day on the Funny Farm!
Have you ever found people to be offended by how much you love you dog? We have found time and time again that people find our love for our dogs to be a form of insanity. They can't seem to fathom any understanding as to why our hearts have fallen over these mangy mutts or why our entire life encompasses these crazy canines. I know some that are appalled at the fact that we don't have children but instead devote our love to these furry lives, who's unconditional love can not be measured against. The shock alone of stating we have six dogs is enough to wrinkle brows and stir doubt about our state of mind, but once the door has been opened, my husband is filling them in on our doggy madness that we live by and you can see the silent horror begin to fill their eyes. They shake their heads as though to love an animal is the most absurd thing they have ever heard.
Some will never understand the devotion and care that comes from loving a dog that loves with no strings or judgement attached. That no matter how you love your dog, they will always love you more or the unconditional love that pierces your heart and is so lost to this world. What they see as illogical or ridiculous is the very reason us dog lovers exist. And if loving my dog makes me a little whacky, so be it. I'll take being dog crazy any day and love every minute of it!
What about you? Has anyone ever been offended by how much you love your dog? Do you consider yourself dog crazy?
