Dogs are a big responsibility
Getting any pet in the home, in reality, is. A bond beyond behaviour and emotions is required to properly care for and provide for another species. Comparing it to the process of raising children can result in unwelcome confrontations. This Andrew Bridgman and Karina Farek comic is proof of that.
This comic depicts the life of a couple who has recently acquired a puppy. Nothing out of the ordinary. Another thing that isn’t uncommon here is someone suggesting that the dog is the couple’s “practise puppy.”
Is that true? You think it was a good idea to say that? Especially in this day and age of being self-contained? As we continue reading, he learns his lesson.
All changes with the passage of time.
Children mature. They become more intelligent than you. They learn to be self-sufficient and survive on their own. How many dogs do you see attending university courses or working in the office?
Furthermore, because a dog is born and raised on the streets, it has no survival skills. A pet shop’s bred dogs must never be left alone.
They’re still going to be babies.
A dog’s relationship with his or her human parent is based on absolute confidence and loyalty. It is the dog’s life that is at stake.
You wish you could spend more time with them.
A dog’s death is unavoidable. You must mentally brace yourself for the day your puppy closes its eyes from the moment it opens them. Human infants, on the other hand, are usually outlived by their parents. The pain of separation is real, but it’s impossible to escape with dogs.
It’s never easy.
The most important thing to remember from this comic is to never dismiss a dog parent’s efforts. They have to deal with issues that human babies never have to deal with.
A big thank you to all dog owners who put up with everything for their furry children! Leave your thoughts on the comic in the comments section below!
