In an earlier Bored Panda interview, Kimberly Freeman, the founder of City Dog Expert and a professional dog trainer, said that the coronavirus pandemic has been rough for many of us, but we can learn from our dogs how to live in the moment and to be excited about the small things.
The professional dog trainer said we can "look out of the window and admire the beauty around us (or the neighbor's cat) or be excited when the postman delivers something new (especially a new purchase). Even relax and be content with our own company and the company of those around us."
Most importantly, we can see how dogs let go and do not hold anger or resentment. Our four-legged friends teach us “to forgive when you truly are sorry (just like that time you accidentally stood on your pup’s tail).”

The dog trainer, however, acknowledges that taking care of a pup isn't always easy. "Shit happens (literally) and no matter how well-behaved our dogs are, we cannot control every element of their actions."
But "sometimes the most surprising things our dogs do bring us the most unexpected joy." Kimberly gave an example of "non-dog owners having no idea how hysterical a dog snore or a snaggle tooth can be."
At the end of the day, having a dog by your side does wonders for your well-being. Research shows that owning one is good for you physically and emotionally—dogs make us happier, healthier, and help us cope with a crisis. They can even help you get a date!
