You can practically beat a dog to death and it will still forgive you.
wow - I had no idea they where that loyal!
thanks for info.
Depending on the dog, you can pretend to hit it once, and it will kill you...or you can kill it and it will still lick your face as it’s last dying gesture. So I reject your last comment.
Yes, nearly all of them will. There are a few breeds that can tend to be less than angelic after being affronted considerably less than this poor fellow was. I had a Dachshund in my childhood that held grudges. I've known a Border Collie or two that were capable of outright vindictiveness if they ever had reason to dislike you, and they never forgot.
