i used to hate dogs. they bite. they piss and shit wherever they want (and without warning), and they're not good conversationalists. however its a mystery why they have so much love for their humans with their brief lives.
even the sound of it when you speak of the word is so endearing.
neil de grasse tyson once mentioned that our affinity with dogs goes back to ages ago and like them, has been passed on to our genetic disposition of our strong closeness with their kind.
does this mean that everything about our disposition with them is genetically pre-rendered? or could this be a human trait of billions of years of evolution that binds us with compassion towards beings ultimately dependent to us?
such questions make me smile and wonder.
