In four months, I’ve witnessed the bond between my two dogs develop and strengthen.
While their daily shenanigans resemble kids in elementary school, I cannot help but wonder – are they really friends? Can dogs be friends?
Initially, Jaxson’s arrival in early March made inside the house just as cold as outside.
Harley’s not a fighter, more like a lover, but when it came to Jax – he was neutral.
Jax was relentless. He worked so hard for Harley’s “friendship” #overtime
I put on a good front for the rest of the family, but secretly I questioned my second doodle decision. #bigtime #daily
I know the “bond” between humans and canines have been dissected and deliberated time again.
Most would agree –
it’s a dynamic relationship that is mutually beneficial for both…
Some people feel that –
Dogs must have canine companions because they are derived from wolves, which are cooperative hunters and are supposed to form deep lasting friendships and allegiances within their packs.
While others believe –
This is a misinterpretation of the social structure of wolves.
Sorry to report, my attempts to find what I call “satisfying” clarification on this subject, revealed no conclusive evidence about dogs forming bonds of friendship with other dogs.
But it does give us something to think about doesn’t it?
It’s Wednesday, do the “hump” dance today!
