Dogs represent all that is good in relationships. They love and nurture those that they care about without strings attached. A mother dog loves her babies with that same unconditional love.
Have you ever watched a dog nurture its young? They allow the puppy to venture out on its own until danger approaches They block that danger from their babies with love. If humans don’t abuse the puppy, it is allowed to psychologically develop normally. It matures into a happy secure adult dog able to love a human master.
Now I understand why, as a child, I cuddled and talked so much with my dogs. They were not just my best friends, they were the parents that I never had. My dog parents never bit me for crying for a hug, love, and a bit of nurturing.
When I see a puppy, I always wish that I could have their mother because I know in my heart that my dog mother would have loved me. My human mother only kept me alive to serve her needs.
Please feel free to email me at any time, if you would like to talk about what you are going through.
