And it’s true.
Get a dog and you commit to loving a member of a short-lived species. Not gerbil-short, but far shorter than your own expected life span.
Better to love a tortoise or a parrot.
And yet most of us choose a dog, because between the first tick of that clock and the last is an unconditional friendship not possible with a member of any other species, including our own.
Most of the credit for that belongs to the dog.
