WHY A DOG LIVE SHORTER THAN A HUMAN
WHY DOGS live shorter than humans.
Here is the surprising answer from a 6 year old child.
"As a veterinarian, I was called in to examine a ten-year-old Irish wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.
I examined Belker and found that he was dying of cancer. I told the family that we could not do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog at their home.
When we were going to organize it all, Ron and Lisa said they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to be present during the procedure. They thought Shane might want to learn something from the experience.
The next day, I got the familiar lump in my throat as Belker's family stood around him. Shane seemed so calm and patted the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he really understood what was going on. Within minutes, Belker passed away peacefully.
The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any problems or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's death, and wondered aloud at the sad fact that dogs' lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening calmly, looked up, "I know why."
Astonished, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth almost numbed me. I have never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try to live.
He said, "People are born to learn to live a good life - like loving everyone all the time and being kind, right?"
The six-year-old continued, "Well, dogs already know how to do it, so they don't have to stay here as long as we do."
Show deep care
If a dog was the teacher, we would learn things like:
• When your loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
• Never miss a car ride just for fun
Experience fresh air and wind in your face as pure ecstasy.
• Take chicken naps.
Stretch before you get up.
• Run, frolic and play every day.
• Enjoy attention and let people pat you.
• Avoid biting when a single growl will do the trick
• Stop occasionally, to just lie on your back in the grass on hot days
• On very hot days, drink plenty of water and lie under a shady tree.
• When you are happy, dance around and wiggle your whole body.
Enjoy the simple pleasure of a long trip.
• Be faithful.
• Do not pretend to be something you are not.
• If what you want is buried, dig until you find it.
• When someone has a bad day, just be quiet, sit nearby and lean a little gently until.
That is the secret of happiness that we can learn from a good dog. "❤️
