Dogs have multiple types of symbolism, such as loyalty, obedience, protection, and intelligence. They not only bring a sense of relief, but comfort as well. They are a constant reminder that one must be respectful towards oneself in order to get respect from others. Also, they constantly remind us that no matter what you may be going through, you will always be loved. "A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself"- Josh Billings.
