No creature on this planet knows loyalty as well as the humble canine. When you look at a dog with its human family, you see a loyalty like no other.
This story has been circulating around social media for years now. Dad was worried the family pit bull would be a threat to his newborn daughter. He told his wife the dog would be gone at the first sign of trouble. What he sees, though, is the polar opposite of what he expected. Dog truly is man’s best friend, even pit bulls.
My wife and I owned two dogs that we had owned before we met and brought into the marriage. Her dog was a pit bull/labrador cross named Zack, and he hated me. When our daughter was born, I said to the wife,”If he so much as nips at the baby, he’s gone.”
We brought our daughter home in a car seat, and both dogs sniffed and licked her, tails wagging. I had to pull Zack away from her because he wouldn’t stop licking her. Zack immediately became my daughter’s protector, and when she was lying on a blanket on the floor, he always had to have one foot on the blanket.
Zack loved my daughter immensely, and when she became a little older always walked her to bed, and then slept on the bed with her. He somehow knew whenever it was time to go upstairs, and he would wait at the foot of the stairs for her, and then follow her up to bed.
