Unconditional love...

A while back my human was taking pictures on our beach. She spotted this little boy who should have been in school - playing with this beautiful dog. The dog's owners were relaxing on the beach and these two were having a ball running and romping around.

My human started chatting to the little boy and he even posed for a whole bunch of pictures. He told her his life story and it wasn't a happy one. His parents didn't seem to care where he spent his days, in fact, his dad had left them a long time ago. Alcohol abuse seemed to be a big problem in his home and judging by how thin he was, he wasn't getting the correct nutrition either.

This is such a big problem in our city and I just sometimes wish we had a more balanced situation in our communities.

It's wonderful to see how happy and healthy the pet in this picture is, but so very sad that the little boy has such a different reality. I was happy though that he had this wonderful afternoon with a dog that clearly loved children. That is probably the biggest gift us dogs and cats have to offer to humans, unconditional love!


  1. What a great thing that you shared with that boy, unconditional love is the best kind of love their is and ecveryone should have a chance to experience it:)

  2. You are so right...animals always offer unconditional love! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  3. Sometimes unconditional love from an animal is the best gift of all. I hope that lovely dog lives a long time and helps the boy overcome his home life.

    Your pal, PIp

  4. What a bittersweet post. I am sorry to read of the little boy. I don't like reading or seeing little humans alone in the World, having no one watching after them, teaching them, loving them. But it was sweet to see him with that lovely big dog.

    You are one smart pup and I totally agree with you, that one of the reasons us animals are here is to teach humans how to love unconditionally. They are slow learners, though!


  5. So glad to be your 20th follower! What a touching post this was.
    I bet you made that little boy's day by speaking to him.
    I found you from a comment from Cindy Lou's blog...
    I hope you have a wonderful day!
