Dogs are such popular pets because they are honest, they don’t lie, they are trustworthy and they are loyal.  Dogs are social creatures who enjoy and need our company as much as we need theirs.  The single greatest injustice we can commit against a dog is to give him a set of human moral values and expect him to live up to them, and punish him when he does not.  We have chosen our dogs to become our companion and housemates and in many cases, more than that, such as a child or spouse substitute.  To expect them to live up to that role is unrealistic.  The dog deserves to be appreciated for the wonderful, unique creature that he is with his own marvelous capabilities and traits.
