Dog is God spelled backwards, and I absolutely see God in my Macie. Author Jean Houston says, "In the west, we've put so much of our emphasis on outwardness rather than inwardness and have disturbed the ecology between inner and outer spaces. This is why I think we turn so much to our pets; because they remind us of our deeper nature, of what is truly important. And also in a strange way of what we can be."
If we can take the traits of a dog's personality into the dating arena, we would be more accepting, more patient, open to new experiences, non-judgemental, light of heart and we would enjoy the moment instead of wishing that we were somewhere else.
