    There is a reason they became "man's best friend"

    Let's use the First Amendment to protect the Second so we can avoid using the Second to protect the First.

    Lol such good friends they send 1 million a year to the hospitals. Dogs are annoying, dangerous and stupid. I hate the damn things.

    We could easily say the same about humans, and ironically that is how I feel about many of them.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Pretty sure I'm not alone in this, but most of my dogs have understood pointing for most of their lives.

    I'm about half way between you and most of the folks on here. I've never understood the dog worship, man's best friend thing, but I also enjoy being around well trained and behaving dogs. I have zero patience for most dogs though, because they're basically toddlers with fur.

    My dogs are way better trained and behaved than most people's children. People in general suck way more than dogs, if it wasn't for the idiots their dogs probably would have turned out to be descent animals. You can tell a lot about a person's character by their dog.
    Gettin' down innagrass.

    Yep.

    True loyalty in people is a rare thing, loyalty in dogs is amazingly common.

    But absolutes do not exist. All people aren't good or bad, all dogs aren't good or bad, but in my personal experience I've found most dogs to be better than most people.

    I've learned a lot of people reveal their true nature by how they treat dogs, employees and wait staff.

    Dogs seem to have an innate ability to read humans, a product of our long history together- tens of thousands of years. Im fairly sure dogs are the only domestic animal to instinctively understand the concept of the human “point” gesture, as well as following the gaze of a human. I seem to recall someone testing dog and wolf pups of the same age and even at that young stage the dog pups were much more tuned in to their human handlers and able to comprehend their gestures than the wolf pups were (despite wolves potentially being “smarter”, in absolute terms, than most dogs). The rapport between dog and man, and the history, and prehistory, of dog domestication has always interested me.
