The relation that animals establish with humans is something that goes way beyond what lab scientists can understand. The bonds that are created are familiar, of pure love, unconditional.
Victoria went missing on a cold February day some years ago, apparently she went to search for her dog, Blue, that she thought was missing. It was a scare, with everybody looking for the little girl, finding her near a ravine, with Blue by her side, protecting her, warming her, even preventing the first aid to get to her, until she smiled and got up, then the dog relaxed – understanding they were there to help her.
It was Blue that kept her warm, alert, probably preventing Victoria from dying.
With Victoria since she was born, the bond with Blue will be eternal.
