I do believe as a society we over humanize dogs. Like believing they are spiteful so that’s why they chewed our favorite pair of shoes …or they know they did something wrong, that’s why they look guilty. Dogs don’t process like we do and we often give them human characteristics.
I do however believe they grieve and I often wonder if Jasper is having a “I really miss Daddy day” when I find him doing things like resting on Daddy’s pillow?
I wonder if he dreams of Daddy too?
Never have I seen a dog love a man like this dog loved Richard. I can’t even say I’ve ever had a bond with a dog like they had.
I never would have believed this dog could survive without him….then again I never thought I could either.
Yeah little buddy I miss him too…come on lets go for a walk…
