was communicating with someone this evening, via email, and he
said to me that he and his family spoil their dogs. They have
a doggie door so the dogs can go in and out when they want, they
have this and that. I saw pictures of him and his family with
the dogs, and the dogs were indeed "spoiled". They were
on the couches, the beds, in fact, the house looked like it was
set up specifically for them. The family that were in the pictures
with the dogs were radiating such love and caring that it could
not be measured on any scale. OK, he proved his point, the dogs
are spoiled, so what?
has such a bad connotation associated with the word "spoiled".
If the dogs are happy and not being abused, the people are happy
with the way the dogs are acting who has the right to condemn
am a believer in "spoiled". All my dogs were "spoiled".
They worked and played hard. They deserved to be "spoiled".
For the gentleman who I was talking to, his dogs, who do not work,
also deserved to be "spoiled".
what is the bottom line. Are the dogs "spoiled" or is
it we who revel in the fact that are dogs are "spoiled"?
We, revel in the fact that they are "spoiled" because
the bottom line here is that we are going to make their stay on
the face of this earth as pleasant as possible. This is more joy
than we can stand and it is great. Right on in spoiling them.
