We all say we love dogs and yet we spend most of the time changing their behavior.

We all say we love dogs and yet we spend most of the time changing them.

We change their appearance and their natural behavior, we domesticate, civilize and humanize them, we neuter and sterilize them, we crop their ears and dock their tails. We have a prosperous industry and commerce of accessories and gizmos to turn our dogs into something they are not.

How is that compatible with any definition of love? Have you ever thought about that?
