We belong

Chief Seattle, a Duwamish chief, wrote a letter to President Franklin Pierce in December of 1854, following the U.S government’s offer to buy two million acres of Native American land in the Pacific North West.
Here is a quote from the letter which is relevant in our relationship with dogs: "What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, men would die from great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beast also happens to the man".

Is the converse true for dogs?
