As some sage once said: “I want to be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.” And, of course, Will Rogers’ famous quote: “I don’t know if dogs go to heaven; but when I die I want to go where the dogs go.” And Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic:
“You think dogs will not be in heaven? I tell you, they will be there long before any of us.”
When you lock your dog in your car trunk for an hour he's always happy to see you when you open it. Wife not so much.
