Amazing. People are like cats. When one of them is hurt or sick or injured, cats react by becoming hostile or isolate.
The same thing happens with people. Especially when someone is regarded as normally invulnerable. How they wind up on the island. Nobody wants to confront the reality that the supermen of their lives can be laid low by anything.
Why dogs really are superior. Their impulse when you’re hurt or alone is to get closer, even if there’s some barking and snarling involved.Nobody likes it, nobody wants to believe that my wife, Boudica, is really hurt. They’d prefer to stay away and pretend it didn’t happen or isn’t serious.
My friends the same. Not realizing or wanting to know that there is no me without her.
Um. One exception. The one who has been here throughout. Call her Boudica Junior.
Why we’re not alone on the Island.
PS. No dog is an island.
