Why We Love Our Dogs

26 Jul

The author of this articlehttp://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/25/arts/video-games/dog-ownership-and-video-games.html in the New York Times July 25th likens dog ownership to playing video games. It is an amusingly told story of the author’s day job reviewing video games, and the entry into his life of a cairn terrier named Wookiee.
He concludes that love develops not from any remarkable features of the dog (or the game!), but about the “quiet magic of doing”, a wise and apt observation for those who have had the privilege of devoting themselves to a dog.
