If you have a dog you know what it looks like to be really welcomed home! If you’ve been gone for a long time, when you return sure, your spouse will be happy, your kids will be delighted, but after the initial happiness they’ll look at your bags to see what you bought for them.
Of course, if you couldn’t buy anything they’ll say that’s ok and that they don’t care about they, but they will be secretly a little disappointed. Pooches however, will jump, and bark, and scream out of happiness, and they will ask for nothing! You coming home is the greatest gift they could receive.
