Many people judge others on their appearance. The fat lady is honored only in opera. The short man is considered sissified. Some folks reject those of different skin color, a limp, lack of so-called style in dress, the job they pursue, their education, their ancestry, or where they live.
Our canine friends are wiser. Dogs sense the real person and instinctively recognize a person’s personality. They relate to kindness, generosity, even the interior happiness. They shy away from shallowness, egotism, “me first” self-serving persons. They respond to sincerity and turn away from hypocrisy. Is it any wonder some people prefer their dog to their neighbors?
