Final Thoughts: Our Loyal Best Friends 

Dogs are innocent furry beings with the sole purpose of igniting joy in us. Their love for us extends farther than we thought as they have always been loyal and never with a bad intention. As responsible and compassionate humans or owners, we must treat our pets with kindness and respect. 

Unfortunately, there are numerous cases of dogs being abused and suffering in the possession of human beings. This brings us to a thought: are we really that cruel to treat animals, such as dogs, with brutality? 

Dogs, these creatures that love us unconditionally, have often been taken for granted. Dogs are angels on earth, and they deserve nothing but goodness. Yet, some among us choose to be cruel to dogs and animals in general, contributing to the vileness of this world. It’s time we acknowledge that treating dogs the right way is not just the right thing to do but also contributes to a more just and equitable world. 

Is it really that hard to simply be kind? 

Let us all support a more compassionate, loving, and justifiable world for our furry companions and everyone. If you also yearn for this advocacy and have undying care and love for animals such as dogs, you’ll definitely want to check out Dogs with Attitude, a book thoughtfully written by Yvonne Bronstorph.
