Dog's Perspective

By Maisie McEldowney, Grade 5

Covid might seem all bad which it was. But think about it from your dog's perspective. Always having a buddy to give them the extra treats, someone to play with all day, snuggling up with your owner when they have a bad day, and getting those extra walks, and overall you just always being there. My dog Oscar doesn't have much time left to live. But in some way, I am happy that covid happened when it happened. Because Oscar got walks all the time he got treats such as whipped cream, peanut butter, and homemade and other human snacks. My dog Oscar loves to sleep and snuggle so every time I come home from school he will bring me something to the door such as his toys, stuffed animals, shoes, clothes, just anything he finds. He also did this during covid but I would always find him on the bed with me just sleeping. Oscar is eight and has a bunch of hip problems. I don’t ever want to have to say goodbye to him but he is still alive and so I’m trying to always hang out with him and make him extra happy. On the other hand, if you got a quarantine puppy then good luck. But just because covid is horrible for you doesn't mean that it is horrible for you dogs. You can take the quarantine time that we have and spend every second building a better relationship with your dog. In the end, it will benefit you and your dogs, you get an emotional support animal, and they get a best bud to always give them treats. Also if quarantine hit your dog hard, it happened to my dog so Freya got a lot chubbier, and now when she wags her tail her entire body shakes, but she is still adorable.
