Some where along the way while educating and getting educated we have created absolutes. I love this post because it reminds us to not fall into that trap.
There have been so many times when people have told me that Kinley just wants to please me. Dont’ get me wrong, Kinley loves me but she doesn’t do much to try to please me. She loves to play, eat, explore, and she is prey motivated. I have seen dogs who live for affection and praise (lots of Goldens) but my dog does not. I am almost positive that she would be content if we never touched or spoke. She loves my presence.
This is a post made by Jean Donaldson (see link below). I have added the pictures of Max and Sophia just because I like them.
