I really enjoyed this, particularly the chart. I learned a lot! I’ve always had both cats and dogs and I love them all but for slightly different reasons. My brother-in-law doesn’t like dogs and isn’t particularly nice to ours. He says things like, “Go away dog” if Cooper gets too close. And yet, Cooper still loves him and rushes to greet him when he comes over. I think in time, he’s going to wear BIL down with his enthusiastic and unconditional love.
