An essay inspired by psychological article about empathy.

Nowadays, in this selfish world, people find it hard to establish true and lifelong friendships. Some were disappointed by close friend and they came to the conclusion that they cannot trust people anymore.

A dog is happy when his comrade is happy and is worried when he is sad. That animal is one of the few absolutely unselfish friends, the one that would never betray , who won’t ever leave.   It is the only creature that loves others more than himself.
On the whole it seems to me that the only friendship that will undoubtedly last...
