1,578 shares — A Tad over My 4 share AverageThe Worst of times . . .

I mean Dickens’ advent to A story of two Cities: “It was the finest of times, it to be the worst of times…” is constantly applicable, no matter what the era.

But this days, once social media engagement is 24–7, the worst of times seem an ext in ours face, more aggressive.

I believe that is why our dogs have become such a huge part of the remedy to our noisy times. Dogs continuously wrap us with their joy and cheer.

Last month in my dog article, God do The Wolf.Man make The Dog, which was featured in priziv.org, i spoke about the co-evolution of the dog. In a world that knew dinosaurs indigenous 210 million years ago, dog are brand-new to this world. We, Sapiens, bred and also disciplined this creatures we contact dogs for only the last 30,000 years, and not much much longer than that.

The finest of time . . .

When us look at a dog, we view not only our beloved companion, we check out the best in ourselves because we take it the wolves we feared and also transformed them right into our closest friends. Dogs space loyal, trusting, never organize a grudge and do not judge out votes for the midterms.

There is no known background to the quotation. There is no knowledge almost everywhere of who W.R. Purche was or is. Yet we as dog lovers can all relate.
