What is the feeling of loyalty?
According to some, jealousy is an emotion inherent in human beings, and being lost is a problematic spiritual experience.
In some sources, we see it only as friendship, sincere devotion, truthfulness, and loyalty. But it is much more for our lovely friends.
Dogs are one of the first animals to have a place in people's lives. Their loyalty and unquestioned devotion are one of the main reasons why they were so in demand after they became domesticated about 12 thousand years ago. They worship their owners as food, water and other nourishment, and obey their masters' commands unquestioningly in response. It is accompanied by their loyalty, their needs being met, and with gratitude, the fear of cutting the demand and that their masters might punish. There is a relationship in which love, respect and fear blend.
Come and listen about a true story that caught my attention. Title of the article was "The dog's loyalty made everyone cry!" . Event is taking place in Bursa, one of Turkey's eminent city. Cesur, the dog of Mehmet Ilhan, who lost his life in 79 years old, shows once again how loyal friends they are. Cesur didn’t eat and drink anything on the day his owner was taken to the hospital, collapsed when it heard the news of its owner's death.
The owner of the dog is brought home for burial. It resists not to leave until he is buried. After its owner is buried, Cesur goes to visit him every morning, as if it had sworn to stay with him. The story of this loyal friendship, which was widely covered even in the world press, deeply affected animal lovers that year.
Let's end with a few famous words that describe the value of dogs:
Your dog is the only person in the world who will love you more than yourself. (Josh Billings)
-If there are no dogs in heaven, I want to go where they were when I die. (Will Rogers)
- The biggest fear of dogs is that once you leave the house without it, you won't come back. (Stanley Coren)
