12 Small Pleasures Only Dog People Are Familiar With

What is your description of the perfect friend? One that loves you unconditionally? Someone who forgives easily, stays close by your side, and is a really good listener? Well, I have described my dog. Who is, in essence, one of the best friends I could ask for. He brings me joy, and I know for a fact there are millions of other people who feel just the same as I do. Here are 12 small pleasures that dogs give their owners.

1. They give unconditional love

It is a wonderful feeling to be loved unconditionally. Dogs don’t care if we look perfect, say the right things, or act distracted. They love us no matter what.

2. They’re a faithful companion

Dogs don’t get tired of us. They enjoy our company. If they had their way, they would be beside us at all times.

3. They understand us without speaking

They get us. We don’t have to explain ourselves to our dogs. If we are in a bad mood, they comfort us. If we are happy, they are happy with us.

4. They’re the best listener in the world

Anything we need to say, they’ll listen to it. If we need to blow off steam or say a secret aloud, they have us covered. At times, they seem to like our voices as much as we do.

5. They let us become a good teacher

We burst with pride when our dogs know the simplest of commands. They give us the opportunity from puppy stage to adult stage to experience the gift of being a teacher.

6. They appreciate of nature

Our dogs get us outside. We get to witness beautiful sunrises and sunsets thanks to our dogs. We can watch how the sky turns different colors during the day and observe beautiful stars at night. We hear birds singing, the wind whistling, and crickets chirping.

7. They’re the best shotgun rider around

All we have to say is “ride” and our dogs are ready to go. They know when you grab your keys they might get a chance of coming along. When we can take them, they hop right up in the front passenger seat and sit happily going down the road.

9. They are a calming force

No matter what we are going through, they are right there beside us offering silent support. We know we all can have an awful day from time to time; however, when we stroke our dog’s head, we feel some of our stress alleviate. Their calm presence rubs off on us.

10. They show us how quickly time passes

Our dogs teach us just how quickly times goes by. One minute they are puppies, and then we blink and they have become grown ups. While we are busy with our lives, and we know time is passing, we may not realize how precious time is. Then one day we look at our dogs and we realize they have become older, and this makes us appreciate every moment a little more.

11. They are always happy to see us

It’s hard in life to find someone who is always happy to see you. Our dogs, are. They are overjoyed just because we came home or because we are willing to take them on a walk or run. Sometimes they are happy just because we entered the same room they are in.

12. They forgive easily

We all mistakes; however, not everyone we know is very forgiving of our mistakes. Our dogs forgive us. Over and over, they forgive us. They don’t hold a grudge. They live in the moment. If we make a mistake, they forgive us and move right on.

If you are a dog owner, you are most likely already aware of all the pleasures our dogs can give us. They are our constant companions and faithful friends. They teach us so many life lessons. They bring us much joy, and we are lucky to have them.
