Breeding matters

“In dog’s, we’ve bred the people we wish we could be”(Carl Safina). I love this quote from Carl Safina and it really makes me consider how our relationship with dog’s has evolved. Loyalty, protectiveness, sensitivity, affectionate, helpful to others, non-aggressive and intelligence are some of the more common traits we like to see in our dog’s. Deep down of course we all have these capacities but yet uniquely to human animals we still wage war, people are dying of starvation and in many cases humans take more than they need, exhausting the earth of its natural resources. Do we breed dog’s unintentionally to remind us of who we once were? To keep us in touch with reality and show us how we can all living and working peacefully together, taking only what we need.
