Their love really is unconditional.
People Magazine recently published an interview they conducted with an expert from Harvard concerning dogs and what dogs dream about when they sleep. Do dogs dream in black and white? Do they dream using primal emotions — anger, sadness, happiness? Do dogs even dream at all?
"Since dogs are generally extremely attached to their human owners, it's likely your dog is dreaming of your face, your smell and of pleasing or annoying you," Dr. Deirdre Barrett told People Magazine. Awww! That's a sweet conclusion to come to and will certainly make you feel closer to your pup. Yes, they really do love you and are loyal to a fault.
Since the interview was brought to the public, dog owners everywhere are incredibly sentimental over the idea that their pup's entire world revolves around them. It makes sense why your dog wants to be around you at all times and revels in all the affection you bestow upon them.
Of course, we recognize dogs as "man's best friend," but the true extent of that term was not fully recognized until this new information about what dogs dream about was brought to people's attention.
The quote above has since gone viral across the Internet, with over 60,000 people retweeting it and sharing their own sentiments on the subject. Dog owners seem to have been cut deep by this one, as even just the sight of their companion sleeping has brought many of them to tears. Not just from cuteness, but from the unconditional love these animals show us.
No matter how many times we yell at them for getting into the trash or eating our shoes, dogs can never stay mad at us for long, and vice versa. It just goes to show that unconditional love knows no bounds, especially across different species.
Of course, we cannot look into the mind of a dog, but the idea of a dog's love extending deep into their psyche and dreamworld does send warm fuzzy feelings through the body.
Our furry friends love us just as much as we love them. See what dog owners have to say.
