Dog Paw Bell
Is not hard to guess why I choose to make this Dog Paw bell. I love dogs very much. I like all dogs, not only purebred. In fact, I love all the animals and, this is the first bicycle bell made with a footprint from an animal, but, it will follow many others.
Why Dog Paw bell and not others paw?
The relationship between dog and man has gone back thousands of years. Dogs didn’t become “man’s best friend” for no reason. They give us unconditional love every day and I think that many of us don’t deserve it. There is too many stories of dogs being mistreated, being made to fight, being bred for profit, dogs being euthanized because they don’t have homes. Maybe when you’ll ring this bell some other people will see your affection for dogs and share it.
Being one of several species that co-evolved with humans they are unique in their relationship with us. And humans have bred dogs for nearly the entire time wolves have shown an affinity for human company. It stands to reason that the relationship, much different from the other animals humans have domesticated, has evolved into one of mutual friendship. People like things that are affectionate and fluffy, while dogs like attention and being loved, part of a pack. When you look at a puppy, you can easily imagine the fun it is to hold it, especially while it is gnawing on your finger or licking your face, tail wagging at sonic speed. We tend to see them as children, and our need to nurture takes over, an innate response.
In time many great minds appreciated this unconditional love:
“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” — Roger Caras
“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.” ― Josh Billings
