Well-Meaning

Truly Man’s Best Friend

I am an animal lover in general. Though not a vegetarian (that is a long discussion I don’t want to get into here), I respect all animals. But yes I am a dog person. While I have adopted both dogs and cats I am sorry cat people but dogs are at a different level than all animals.

Dogs have done and still do so much for us. To any who think they are just another animal and thus don’t need to be treated any different (and actually we should treat all animals as we treat dogs) watch this to see a few ways that dogs help us now. Then read this and tell me dogs haven’t contributed to make our society what it is today.

Many a community in our history may well have perished if not for the support of dogs. They have served and still serve us as not only companions but true partners. In short they guard us and protect us in ways even other humans cannot.

Dogs protect our livestock and help us herd them with one dog what would take many men even on horseback. They search out bombs and drugs. They detect seizures and cancers. They perform tasks for the impaired. They elicit positive reactions from those of ill health both physical and mental – calming, inspiring, comforting. These are just a few examples of what dogs do fir us.

Each dog may be an individual or individuals best friends, but all dogs are best friends of all of humanity. Let’s treat them like friends (see next story).

I was born in and raised near Milwaukee and have pride in the city. I want to be one of the people always striving to make Milwaukee better, starting with getting other men involved in their community.
