An excerpt from leaves of grass

I think I could turn and live with animals,they are so placid and self-contain'd, I stand and look at them long and long. They do not sweat and whine about their condition, They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins, They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God, Not one is dissatisfied,not one is demented with the mania of owning things, Not one kneels to another ,nor to his kind that livedd thoousands of years ago, Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.

Hello my friend, I understand your words. I would probably trust someones dog before I trusted them, and their dog would know it before they did.
