Dogs are amazing animals. As man’s best friend, they show us everyday how to love.

We are proud to tell you that our dog, Louie, is truly a Wonder Dog. He is loving, caring, intuitive, intelligent, handsome, and a wonderful friend and companion. Frankly, we love him like a child. And the good news is, he loves us right back! And he loves us unconditionally!

Louie is a Golden Retriever rescue. Even though he came from terrible beginings, he has grown into a marvelous and beautiful dog. He is our faithful companion. He is everything you could ever want in a best friend. He tells us by his “words” and his actions that he is delighted to see us, that he missed us, and that he loves us. And when we come home from work he shivers, howls a gurgling sound, and wags his tail uncontrollably.

No matter how bad our day, no matter how stressful our work, and no matter how tired we are, just seeing Louie lifts up our spirits, relaxes us, and makes us feel loved. Isn’t that amazing? How can a dog have that effect upon us? How can our Wonder Dog, Louie, make us forget all of our cares and woes, lift up our spirits so completely, and make us feel so warm and fuzzy?

The four most important love lessons Louie has taught us are:

1. Our dog loves us unconditionally. Louie doesn’t love us “If we do something he likes,” “If we feed him his food and water,” “If we let him sleep with us in bed,” “If we comb his fur,” or “If we take him to the Vet.” He just loves us. He loves us unconditionally. People in the human race should learn this simple lesson.

2. Louie never lies to us. He always tells us the truth. When those soft brown eyes look at you, you melt! There is no equivocation in his eyes. He loves us, plain and simple. Just tell the truth! The eyes know love.

3. Louie never bites us. Oh, for sure, he might let out a little growl when you try to move him over so you can get in bed, but that is only a warning that he has found his “cozy place” in bed and you are intruding on his space. But bite? Never in a thousand years. He disagrees with us from time to time, but we are his friends, his family, and his supporters. To bite us is so far from his mind that he could never imagine it. And neither could we.

4. And finally, Louie knows the most important lesson of all—we are his best friends, his family, his trusted associates, and his providers. He can count on us through thick and thin. He can count on us when the chips are down. Louie knows in his heart that we would never let him down, never cheat on him, never hurt him, and never betray him. He loves us unconditionally and we love him just the same.

You can learn a lot about love from a dog. Our Wonder Dog Louie has taught us the loving lessons of life. We are eternally grateful for his love, his trust, and his companionship.

To learn the lessons we have learned from Louie is to have learned the essence of love. Louie has inspired us on to even greater love. We owe the big boy! His example about love is a model we should all follow. Human beings could learn a lot about love from you. Thanks, Louie. We love you unconditionally.
