Unconditional Love by Exileden Unconditional Love by Exileden
Why deeply down I feel like that I love my own dog than anyone else when I stare on her eyes?
Why I feel more comfortable with her than anyone else?

I love my family, close people and as well my beloved partner. I have people which I love but with my dog, there is something very special....

I can hug my dog so easily and at any time.
Dog will always gaze at me with happiness.
When I'm upset, I always hug her. I sleep with her.
I feel comfortable with her than anyone else. Even more than with my partner.

Why I am still feeling a bit shy to look on eyes at my best friend or boyfriend, but at my dog, there is unconditional connection between us.
I feel at my place. Comfortable.
A comfort.

Is that because dogs are free from the greed and sins? That we feel less anxious than with anyone else? Will always forgive us? That there is no mental pressure and fear between that connection?
Or maybe it's because I lost trust to humans? I have social anxiety? I don't trust people... Or maybe I want to escape?
And yet, also, the dogs has achieved unconditional love than us, humans. For humans it's hard to achieve....

I don't know how you feel about it but that's how I feel. Me and my dog, Arnaq, have created wonderful connection eachother that I never experienced before, despite that she is a wild canid. For me on this drawing where I drew a Greenland dog- as wild, unbroken and the closest dogs to the Nature symbolize raw power of unconditional relationship between the dog and the Master.
Not only love gave a trust eachother but also discipline to create a balance between us.
Just a quick personal sketch of myself (or whatever) and dog.

I love hearing about a person's relationship between them and their constant companion. Many animals have unconditional love for us and it's so amazing and so comforting. You've expressed that spot on in this piece of art. Certain people in this world don't know what it feels like to have such love and affection from these living beings. Me and my cat Torin are at least 95% of the day around each other X3.

You are a very talented artist and I love all your drawings, especialy the wolves! Do you think it would be ok if I tried to copy this is my own style? It will come out different and won't be as good as yours anyway, haha!

This is so beautiful, I love how you shade your art, everything is so smooth.
I can relate to this so well, I don't know what I would do without my dog. Whenever I'm having a bad day he walks up to me and lays down next to me. I can be in the worst mood ever, and he still loves me.
Garymillertime Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Very well said. Some people don't get the concept of unconditional love because they themselves can not give of themselves humbly or genuinely . Sounds like you get it! As a parent my love is unconditional for my child as well. Oh yes... Unconditional love does exist!

I feel like I understand this feeling completely. My first dog, a Lhasa Apso named Max, was like my brother, father, boyfriend, pretty much my everything... the day he was put down devastated me because I came to rely on him. Anyway, Thank You for drawing this because it reminds of Max a bit.

I really like this. I'm the same (well, in my case it's my cat but yeah).
Wondeful (:

Beautiful, you really captured the connection between yourself and Arnaq. :) I think it is because dogs give us their unconditional love and loyalty and only expect love in return- while humans can put a lot more pressure and anxiety into a relationship, sometimes.
bluewolfahmad Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013
Amazing work.
black-cat2002 Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013
I think this happens because dogs are really pure beings.
They will care for you with all their heart and they will give you ALL their happiness...yet with strangers they will be mean..
But sooo many times i wonder;whould this creatures prefer to be free?Being with us is TRULLY what they want?...........
If not i hope they had forgive us.
Every time I stare at my fathers dogs i am thinking this thoughts....

Its also very understandable I love my fiance but my dog has been with me for four years and is my most loyal friend and companion. Ive had alot of hardships that caused alot of grief and pain but she has helped me through it all and never once left my side for any reason.

This is Beautiful! I love your sketches!!!!

The friendship of a dog is the purest of all. Still, the thought that they are only able to accompany us for such a short time compared to our lifespan always pains me.
Have you ever seen the animated short movie Adam and Dog?

Fuzzyhair Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2013   General Artist
I am always kind of paranoid of people I make friends with..
Which is why I don't have such a huge circle (which I am pretty fine with :) )

But I always have the fear at the back of my mind
that someone will turn away from me and stab me in the back and laugh at my face,
even though I trusted them so much for so long..

A lot of it (but not all) was when I was younger back in primary school.
Very rough years. But alas, it is all in the past now.

I can get along with people just fine nowadays
but there is always that horrible notion at the back of my head that keeps reminding me of what can happen..
Vucovix Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I feel kind like you, but I'm kinda "obsessed" with people I really like.
I, sometimes, give up many things just for people who I love and love me, or I think they love me. I'm that guy who'll fall in love easily and then suffer because the person doesn't feel the same as me.

However I'm not very a approchive man, which makes me suffer a lot for love, I really don't know how to show others that I love'em. And to make everything worse, people think that I'm cold heart, that I don't like'em or just illude'em. So, yeah, I'm not someone with many friends, only those who were able to understand my way of being are here.

I know how you feel XD

Tak, kocham mojego psiaka tak samo :) Mam labradorkę, jak wracam do domu to tak ogonem macha że aż jej cała dupka lata w obie strony :) I kapcie przynosi, nie te co powinna, ale i tak ważne że przynosi. I zna komendę "daj buzi" :D
I psy mojego narzeczonego też kocham, ma aż cztery :) Jeden z nich, pół-jamnik, jest taki GŁUPI, że chyba byłby upośledzony umysłowo gdyby był człowiekiem, naprawdę :D Sika wszędzie, zakopuje chleb w dywanie i robi inne durne rzeczy, ale za to go wszyscy uwielbiamy nawet bardziej.
Ech, psiaki :)

I have lost my dog a few days ago... and this drawing and the text you've written, described how I felt with him.
Treasure every moment you enjoy with Arnaq.

I've never had a dog myself, but it always amazes me that there is a species so perfectly suited to being friends with humans! It's wonderful that you have a friend who never judges you and assumes the best about you. :aww:
What a pretty sketch, too!

Yes, dogs are really true friends...They have their own intelligence, and when you can understand them...The bond you can grow with them is really powerful...
I can't have a dog friend myself, because I'm pervert (And trying to cure myself from that. Don't flame me, it's really difficult). But I've seen many people having a strong bond with their dogs...
Is Dog your Totem Animal ? That could explain it :)
Exileden Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2013
Nah. Just I'm very passionate with animals and my dog has changed my life in a lot many wonderful ways :)

AlphaDera Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013  Student General Artist
I sometimes feel the same.No matter what the dog always will be there for you.It may not understand but it will listen and when you hug it it will just leave you cry out your pain with it. I don't think that its weird because I've never seen more understanding people or atleast close as understanding as my dog.And sometime we just need someone we can tell everything no matter what.
