Dogs develop habits that never cease to amaze us as they interact within a human habitat sharing mans lives and this allows a better way of life and communication. This is probably why dogs behave in special ways while they are trying to communicate by means of sound, looks and gestures like for example whey they want to alert us of danger etc. Dogs are excellent observers and they base it on numerous signals to which they condition themselves to naturally. Its possible that this is a conditioned reaction, but there does not seem to exist any instinct for a dog to express conditioned affection if he does not want to because of his own desire and need of both giving and receiving affection. One thing that is interesting is that the protective attitude a dog has towards a child could very well change when the child becomes a teenager. If the teenager starts to have a cruel attitude with the dog, the dogs behavior can vary completely. Its possible that the dogs love will not change but he will not tolerate any abuse. Within the family unit a dog learns to submit to the hierarchy order he is to be in but in front of a child he will feel he is on the same level, even when the child is a teenager, and he will try to continue on with the same relationship.
My uncle could never figure out what was so desirable about having a pet. He thought that my mom and dad were crazy to dote over their pets. Recently, his wife was diagnosed with a very serious disease which leaves her in constant pain. The pain not only has put a damper on her driving, but put a complete stop to it. Its difficult to put myself in her shoes and imagine being confined to the house after having a very enjoyable social life. Things were not going so well and then a friend brought them a poodle in a Sherpa Pet Carrier to watch for the week-end. Now it is their dog, and they have a few Sherpa Pet Carriers, one for any occasion. A complete turnaround took place with my uncle, and he is now absolutely crazy about Sugar, the poodle. And to think, he never understood my parents of doting over their dogs. He and his wife take their pet everywhere including funerals, and family reunions where Sugar is given his own plate and dish of water on the table. He holds Sugar with one hand and eats with the other. It is quite entertaining.
