Sometimes the change is life-altering. Our hearts soar when we hear stories about people who've welcomed a dog into their lives that later saves their lives in a fire, or in a robbery, or provides companionship during long-term illness. Then there are the dogs that bring more subtle changes. Those that teach us patience with their constant leash-pulling, assertiveness while becoming confident walk leaders, or even empathy when they lick our tears away. There are very few relationships that connect with us as purely as the one we share with our dogs. How could we not be influenced by them? Learn from them? Be changed by them...
It's hard to say what a dog will teach you when they come home for the first time, but that's part of the magic of relationships. With an open heart, one day at a time, simply learning.
