The Meaning Of Love – Taught by Dogs

“Nobody can fully understand the meaning of love unless he’s owned a dog Boston Terrier”

the meaning of love boston terrier

Before I owned a Boston Terrier (or in fact any dog as Stelly is my first) I could never have fathomed the amount of pure, unconditional love that a dog can give and perhaps even more surprising is the pure, unconditional love I have for her.

Before we traveled 1459 miles + 4 Days + 2 States to adopt our puppy I believed that dogs belong outside (at all times), don’t need fancy soft beds, certainly don’t need cool little dog jackets to keep them warm (hello they have fur) and they are just a little gross and can never be trusted.

Then I met a little Boston Terrier called Stelly. Not our Stelly but a Canadian Stelly (our neighbour’s dog) who was the first Boston Terrier I had ever seen and I was smitten. A fully grown dog that looks cool, is cute and kind but still looks like a puppy!

When we finally adopted our pup we named her after Canadian Stelly and from day 1 all of my rules and beliefs went right out the window!

Having my own dog has taught me so much about life – they have so much love but they are also very in tune with their instincts and can pick someone dodgy from a mile away – I find that so fascinating!

They don’t care if you’re having a bad hair day – when you are happy, they are happy and when you are sad they are right there cuddling up to make you feel better.

The world would be a much better place if we could learn to love humanity and the earth like they do.
