1,578 Shares — A Tad Over My 4 Share AverageThe Worst of Times . . .

I suppose Dickens’ introduction to A Story of Two Cities: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…” is constantly applicable, no matter what the era.

But these days, as soon as social media engagement is 24–7, the worst of times seem even more in our confront, even more aggressive.

I think that is why our dogs have actually become such a huge part of the remedy to our noisy times. Dogs consistently wrap us via their joy and also cheer.

Last month in my dog post, God Made The Wolf.Man Made The Dog, which was featured in lutz-heilmann.info, I spoke about the co-evolution of the dog. In a world that kbrand-new dinosaurs from 210 million years back, dogs are brand-new to this world. We, Sapiens, bred and disciplined these creatures we call dogs for only the last 30,000 years, and not a lot much longer than that.

The Best of Times . . .
