A conversation between two dogs on their role in human's life.
 



24/7 THERAPIST 

Subba Rao 

“We the dogs are known for faithfulness, affection and love,” “If we
were evolved from wolves and wild dogs, it's hard to see a connection,” 
pondered, Rani, a female Golden Cocker Spaniel. 

“There is something called mutation that occurs during evolution and
that's what I believe occurred to make us most lovable animals,” 
reasoned Rajah, Rani's mate. 

“May be you are right.” “But why people love us so much?” 

“Well, we give unconditional love without judging them and we are very
faithful.” Rajah looked at Rani with a look “Don't you know that.” 

“Explain.” 

“We love everybody.  Those loving or hateful, happy or angry, forgiving
or unforgiving, generous or miserly, smart or stupid, introvert or 
extravert, believers or non believers, saints, thieves, liars, and 
murderers.  And that's make us lovable pets.”  Rajah scratched his long 
ear with his forepaw. 

“Now I know why we are called Man's best friend.” Rani stood and shook
her hind leg to settle down comfortably. 

“Whenever our master and family members come home, we jump with joy and
lick their faces, drool a little, wag our tails, rub our bodies against 
theirs' and make whining sounds of love and affection to make them feel 
good.” 

“I do all the time.” Rani agreed. “We don't care whether the owner had
good day or bad day, whether he ripped off somebody or got ripped,” 
Rani continued her monologue, “A murderer returns home after committing 
a horrendous crime would find solace in the company of his pet dog.” 

“I wish we could be more discriminating,” Rajah was objective. 

“We can't help it.”  “We love everybody from a saint to a serial
killer.” Rani now frustrated for their inbuilt loving nature. 

“Is it our brain chemistry?” questioned Rani. 

“True, it is something to do with our thought process. We love and treat
everybody nice unlike people.” Rajah was philosophical. 

“May be we can teach people how to be grateful and friendly.” 

“I don't know.” Rajah was not sure. 

“How about brain transplant?” Rani was thinking loud now. 

“You mean transplant dog brain into humans?” 

“Yeah, that's what I mean,” Rani was assertive. 

“I am not sure.” “Firstly, a neuroscientist should study our brain to
see what makes us to love unconditionally, and then the part of the 
brain responsible for this behavior can be identified.  Then they can 
figure it out how to grow those responsible parts outside in a lab for 
a transplant.” 

“You are far smarter than I thought you were.” Rani was pleased. “Well,
I read a lot you know.” 

“You mean from Kutha.com?” the website Rani visits a lot. 

“No, that is more for gossip.” I get more stuff from Sunaka.org,” “This
website is more scientific. 

“I wonder what we are eating for lunch today?” wondered Rajah 
scratching  his head loudly with  forepaw.
