We are different from other animals; it's undeniably true. But while acknowledging that, we must acknowledge another truth, the truth that we are also the same. Thatis what dogs and their emotions give us--a connection. A connection to life on earth, to all that binds and cradles us, lest we begin to feel too alone. Dogs are our bridge--our connection to who we really are,and most tellingly, who we want to be. When we call them home to us, it's as if we are calling
for home itself.
