The feeling of getting unconditional love from dogs is something that can’t be described in words. These furry angels make our days great simply by looking at us. And when they stare at us with their puppy eyes, it melts our hearts. Awww!
Seeing the pure bond between humans and dogs, a French artist Lucille aka Notidee, tweeted a comic titled “It’s just a dog”. Through this sincere strip, she has described the behavior of her dog. Also, she has perfectly portrayed her relationship with her dog. Scroll down to have a look.
“I work on many fronts artistically speaking, and am currently putting most of my energy into an upcoming visual novel called [Kernel],” she told us.
“Neos is a five years old Japanese Spitz who single-handedly shattered my world when he got here,” Notidee said. “He came to me at three months old [with health and reactivity issues], forcing me to relearn everything I thought I knew about dogs from the ground up.”
“Reactivity and resource guarding can put both owner and pet in danger. If worked on without the help of a professional behaviorist,” Notidee said. When working on reactivity, we usually focus on applied behavior analysis which, to make it really short and simple, is about giving choice to our dogs while desensitizing them progressively, without ever triggering a reaction (thus never needing any command, we prioritize fun games for the dog that we use to avoid triggers when we meet them outside).”
“I started studying animal behavior (medical training and behavior analysis and modification in particular) to improve his quality of life and give him the ability to make choices whenever possible,” Notidee explained. “He is now a healthy, well-adjusted pup. As for me, I’ve discovered another field I’m deeply passionate in alongside art.”
“I have been flooded with messages from pet owners around the world telling me about the animals they share their lives with and how this comic conveyed the way they felt about their dogs, cats, birds, and other critters.”
“Dedicated pet owners, and in particular those tending for the needs of reactive or more fragile animals, will usually puzzle their entourage by the amount of work, money, and time they will put into making life a little easier for their pets,” Notidee said. “I had the hope that this comic could help build a bridge between Neos and me, and the people around us who struggle to understand us, but didn’t think the message would resonate with so many.”
