My name is Avatar, and yes, I am a dog. That’s me in the header – I am a handsome fellow, aren’t I?
You may be wondering why I have a leash in my mouth. It’s because dogs walk on a leash with their humans, but humans walk around with a leash on their minds.
Don’t believe me? Just look around at all of the miserable, depressed and lonely people who live on this earth. Compare them to your dog and then look me in the eye and tell me who has a leash on their mind.
Aha! I knew it! I saw you nodding…
So here’s the thing. You humans are about to celebrate a holiday called Valentine’s Day, which seems to make you either happy with joy or depressed and alone.
Why do humans need a day to remind themselves that they are loved?
Dogs know it as part of their nature and will express love any way they can. Tails that wag so hard it threatens to fall off to kissing our master with our tongues, dogs know how to shower love.
Humans, not so much.
In these days leading up to your big Heart day, I asked some friends of mine to help me remind you that you came from love, you are love and you are seen.
You can be the person your dog thinks you are.
Why not check out my book, Drop the Leash: Let Go of the Past and Love in the Present? It makes a great Valentine’s Day gift for the dog lovers in your life.
