"Heaven goes by favor; if it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in."- Mark Twain
Dogs are honestly the happiest creatures on this planet. No matter how bad their day was at the vet, how cold it is outside, or how dirty their water source is they never complain and they never seem to be anything less than happy. They love us unconditionally, through every flaw, every mood swing, and every bad day we go through. Dogs are always there to listen to us, no matter the subject, and although it may be because they have no clue what we are talking about, they still don’t change their mood, never wavering from their happy state of mind.
Only when they become sick, hurt, or abandoned do dogs begin to show that they can’t always be their happy selves, yet somehow they still seem to have brightness in their eyes. When they grow old, they still find ways to stumble to their human counterparts, always looking to receive the same compassion and love that they have given us. From puppies learning how to eat proper food, to the senior dogs who would rather lie down by a warm fireplace than go on a long walk, they are always there as our companions.
Dogs are honestly one of the most versatile animals that the human race has been blessed with. From K-9 units, rescuers, therapy workers, senior home companions, wartime heroes, and best friends, dogs come in all shapes, sizes, and responsibilities. They have been with us for centuries, working by our sides since their domestication and continue to be more than just man's best friend.
Dogs all go to heaven because they do more for us than we do for us. They could care less about the quality of food that they eat, yet care more about the mood we are in. No matter the breed, the love and affection rarely wavers, and they rarely care who you are. Dogs never complain about the life they are given, and although they have no voice in this human run world, they still manage to show us how much they love their lives and the people they are surrounded with.
