Dogs are easier to help than people.
You might find one living on the street. Coax him into your car with some food. Take him home. And teach him how to fit into life with your family.
Just try that with a person.
But although people find it challenging to help other people, dogs do it quite naturally—without judging—by building a relationship.
Today we have webisode #3, More Happy Tails, of the Jail Dogs in 1C series where you can see relationship-building in action.
If you’re coming here for the first time, you can find parts 1 and 2 of Jail Dogs in 1C here.
As you saw in the video, the dogs are pretty amazing.
We see two of them go from kennels in the shelter to a stranger’s car to a jail filled with strangers without lashing out or shutting down in fear.
I don’t think I’d show such grace under similar circumstances.
No wonder we have so much to learn from dogs.
People don’t always want our help. What do you think we can learn from dogs about caring?
