Why do dogs adore me.

Im totally a cat person I would never consider having another pet. So why is it that nine times out of ten when I encounter a dog they think Im so fascinating. My friend has a german shepherd dog. He sits with his head in my lap looking deep into my eyes, They say its only me that gets the treatment. The feeling is not mutual. Last summer went to the pub a labrador just came and sat at my feet as if he belonged to me. These are just a couple of examples of numerous occasions. Why?

I have a similar story to add. Our dog didnt get much social training from he was a puppy, he and his brothers stayed outdoors in kind of a playpen all day. When we got him he was scared of new people and new dogs and kept hiding between our feet. He is getting better day by day. So one day i took him to work (its a carecenter for old people) to light up the day abit for those living there. I started out with my coworkers in the office, to say hi then move on. One of them really hates dogs. Shes a nurse and maybe she is afraid of dogs i dont know. My dog walked straight to her, sniffed her abit then just laid down almost on top of her feet. And he didnt want to go! He was about three months then. I told her straight out i didnt expect that from him. She laughed then had enough and went back to work. I wonder if dogs somehow senses doghaters or those afraid. And that some dogs figure they should just check them out and see what its all about? I know some will bite, but those who just calmly walks over and looks at you - maybe they want to say hi! im here, i know you dont like me - and its ok, i like you.

I know. It should be common to have a cat or dog at carecentres like the one i work at, to lighten up lives and bring smiles every day. I does them good to be able to have a cat in their lap for a while or a dog to play with or walk if they are able to, or just pet. I visit my job from time to time with the dog and it is almost magic how many smiling faces it brings. Thank you.
