dogs a step toward your goal of making friends with humans. Making
friends with dogs, even though easy, can sometimes be an irritating matter. So

back and enjoy the conversation amongst your friends, participating
if you wish, while thinking of the next conversation starter. Before
you know it you will have enjoyed a period of good conversation with
your friends and the feeling of loneliness, the feeling of not being
part of the group will fade away.
As you can see,
we are all in a lonely place and it is up to us to manage our minds
and make friends.
