Do we know how a companion animal feels?
This is a dog, yes, but we are talking about the feelings of a companion animal, any companion animal. It strikes me that we don’t really know what is going on in the minds of our companion animals…until we see a video like this..
Companion animals don’t express their feelings like we do. The dog’s caretakers are genuinely surprised at the overwhelming pleasure this dog expresses when reunited with her human companion, a soldier returning home.
It is another example of how beautiful and important a relationship between a companion animal and a person is.
