What Your Favorite Dog Breed Reveals About Your Personality
“Our relationships with our dogs tend to be so unconscious, so bare, and so basic,” write Vicki Croke and Sarah Wilson in Dogology. “Our relationships with our dogs are so much simpler than with fellow humans and less muddied by commentary and feedback about our own behavior and choices…[thus], we’re much less self-conscious when we interact with our dogs.”
