“I’ve learned that there’s a healing power in a dog who will rest his head on your lap, or a paw on your knee.
I’ve learned that people need to be more like dogs.”

“A walk is so much more than just physical exercise or a chance to pee. A dog does not get exercise from just a short walk, and it does not fulfil its needs for social interaction.
What the dog needs, and what makes it feel content when you are getting home, are all those other things that happen during the walk, for instance a chance to investigate whether other dogs have been peeing in the area.
For your dog, this is just like reading today’s newspaper. To be able to squirt a few drops – ‘write’ a message – is just as important as exercise.
It is a social game, which makes the dog work mentally.”
— Anders Hallgren, Ethics and Ethology for a Happy Dog (2015)
“I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent devoted companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source.”
— Doris Day
“Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.”
— Orhan Pamuk

It’s seems to me the universe gave us three things to make life bearable: hope, jokes, and dogs.
But the greatest of these gifts was dogs.

Vechnost Gelios Solnechny Triumf – “Sunny”
This dog gave me goosebumps like hardly any Afghan before and I couldn’t take my eyes of him. These are photos of him in the ring, but the next day I captured him being gorgeous on the beach as well. He lives in Russia.
He has famous Am Multi Ch Pahlavi Puttin’ on the Ritz – “Taco” in his pedigree and even after so many generations you can still see the family resemblance
This is Taco (photos from Darumas Afghans website)
“Francois” by his painting, by me.
