Freedom By Paul Yoder on Friday, July 3, 2020 Reprint from blog.Thanks for reading Paul’s Substack! Subscribe for free to receive new posts and support my work. Is it just me, or do other people sometimes feel a twinge of sadness as they look at a dog and think about what these animals have become? I like to think that dogs are descended from wolves. To me, a wolf is the epitome of an animal living wild and free, yielding to nothing and to no one. They survive by their wits and toughness, starving in the famines and suffering in the harsh northern winters, but with never a thought of giving up their wild freedom for the comfort and security of a domesticated life.
