I think that there is a human inside there somewhere!
Rudy is one of those dogs that just fit right in the moment we saw him. We drove all the way to San Mateo to adopt him. We found him on-line. He originally was in a "kill shelter" until he was picked up by "Dogs Needs Homes Too" and Laura. She cleans them up, gives them shots, and brings them from southern California to northern California for adoption functions. It still amazes me that out of all the white fluffy dogs that were sitting in cages barking and crying LOUDLY that we managed to pick Rudy. We just knew he was "the one" the moment we looked at him. We did walk one other little fluffy white one but somehow he just wasn't "it". And I'm not sure how you know it with just a "test run" around the store. But we did.
Now, he is a permanent fixture in our home and our lives. He, along with our other dog Bodhi, go everywhere we go. And I really mean everywhere. We hardly ever leave them at home alone because we love having them with us. They enhance our lives. When we get our shoes on to go for a walk, the dogs start squeaking and jumping in the air because they know we are going for a walk. When the clock says that it's time for their dinner, they start pacing the floor waiting for their treats. Is it just Pavlov's dog or do they really know? I think they really know. And, do you know that when dogs come on TV, either in a show or on a commercial, that they run up to the TV and start crying because they want to play? Incredible, smart dogs.
Dogs really enhance your life. They offer so much in return for so little. Just give them love, attention, exercise and food and they are your's forever. I'm glad about that. And they offer countless opportunities for photo ops! There really is a person inside. I'm convinced of that.
