Too bad it doesn't work for humans.
You got that right!
Dogs are certainly very forgiving, and often to their own detriment. I think it's too bad also, that some humans are unwilling to forgive even small transgressions.
Yes, well, I meant the DOG's sins and transgressions. For example, if a nosy dog jumped up on my kitchen counter to see what goodies I had in a bag, and knocked over my hot, fresh new yummy 16oz cup of coffee all over (corner to corner) the kitchen floor at 6am, then scurried into the bedroom when I yelled "Goddamn it", and in the process, tore a huge hole in my pillowcase.... IF that were to happen, and he put out his "sorry" paw when I put my hands on my hips to scold him.... I would and always instantly forgive him. Sorry to be so illiterate and vague. My fault, my bad.
I don't abuse animals. NEVER!
A stranger reading this may get the impression, from your dogs can be forgiving to their detriment comment, that my dog needs to forgive ME, and that is NEVER the case. My dog is very well taken care of, well groomed, well exercised, well fed, well vaccinated, extremely happy and totally loved because I have a lot of love and attention to give him. That's no "bullshit!"
In anticipation of your reply to this...something along the lines of .. "I wouldn't know".. That's right, you wouldn't know for sure. You only have my untrustworthy male word for it. I don't have it documented on video tape , or my behavior toward animals notarized, but I don't need to prove anything.
Oh, I see. It wasn't absolutely clear to me, if you meant a dog being forgiven with a figurative paw..or a human by a dog.
I can't even imagine, why anyone would think my comment about dogs being so forgiving often to to their own detriment, has anything to do with how you treat your own dog, or any other animal.
I know you can't imagine
It's because the tone of your reply insinuates that I needed to be forgiven by my dog. WHY WOULD I NEED TO BE FORGIVEN? But that was MY fault. I wasn't PRECISE! Gotta be precise, perfect. Heaven forbid we just relax, smile, and have fun with a post.
No, my comment neither insinuated or implied anything about you . Any possible "fun" about this post, ended with with your first reply.
I said TWICE it was all my fault! What do you want? Three times? OK....It was MY fault for NOT being clear, concise, and 100% ice cold accurate. I should have analyzed the post for a day or two to determine all the "possibilities". MY bad!
There was never any fault on your part even implied, by anything I've said in response to your post. No "bad", except for your own response for my not being clear about just what you meant with it.
OK OK, no more fighting... over my dog giving an "I sorry" paw!! I'm sorry for not being meticulous. Also sorry for reacting the way I did.
