P.S. here’s a special wholesome quote that came directly from the creator and writer of the novel “101 Dalmatians” Dodie Smith, to warm your heart:

“Dogs can never speak the language of humans, and humans can never speak the language of dogs. 

But many dogs can understand almost every word humans say, while humans seldom learn to recognize more than half a dozen barks if that. 

A wagging tail can mean so many things. 

Then there are the snufflings and sniffings, the pricking of ears—all meaning different things. And many, many words are expressed by a dog’s eyes.”

And we can all agree the last part is so true! 

Has your dog ever looked at you so affectionately and their eyes so wide like they wanna tell you they love you? 

Yeah, me too. I cried that day.
