You see a dog. The first thing you want to do is run up and pet it while making kissing noises. Did you know this is actually a jerk move? Yes, you can frighten some dogs – and people – not every dog is as eager to give a stranger affection.
A dog is a pack animal and if it doesn’t think you are part of it’s pack, it can take your signs of affection as aggression. You should always ask someone if they mind if you pet their dog. Aren’t dogs cool? I love them and want to do whats best for them.
Some dogs like to be pet behind the ears and some like belly rubs. Sometimes the little dog is the boss of the big dog, and sometimes the big dog is the most cuddliest.
I’m not a scientist, but when dogs evolved they learned how to steal our hearts. I feel we owe them something for their loyalty and kindness. One of the major problems facing our pets is overpopulation. It is important to have your dog and cat spayed or neutered.
It improves the quality of life for all pets when we have population control. Both cats and dogs can breed very quickly and exceed the capacities of rescues and shelters.
How can you help? Well, first of all be an advocate for your local animal rescue. Share their posts of animals needing homes, donate some money towards their continued operations and offer help when they need it.
My comedy tour, Raise The Woof has raised over 1 million and counting for animal rescues. What if I told you all you had to do was come out and laugh for an evening of entertainment, and you’d be helping out abandoned and homeless animals?
Laughter is a powerful thing, please support your local animal rescue. For more info on what we do email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (323) 570 – HAHA (4242) or use the contact form below.
