The dog is better than that person who brings distress to the heart of his friends. One should dwell on the truth of these words, until the meaning thereof sinks into one's heart,
A man shares your table; the dog is banned and stands by your threshold. What a shame that the dog is faithful, while a man bites the hand that feeds him!
Sadi
Sufi mystic and poet
A dog never forgets one gave it a bite to eat even if it is hit a hundred times, whereas if you pamper a base person all his life, the slightest harshness will make him your enemy!

It is built into the nature of the dog to always be faithful and show love to its master, even when it is mistreated. Man has an ego, an awareness of himself that a dog does not have. A dog is all instinct whilst a man has self will to decide good or bad.

Tell it to the Muslims. The Quran and Hadith teach that dogs are unclean. That's what you call "projection."

Dogs know the difference between good and bad.
It is true that dogs are not ego based. However I would not say that they do not have ego.
Humans have too much ego !
Dogs have virtues we can only pray to attain to !

I agree dogs do not have ego but remember they are pack animals, former wolves and to study a wolf is to understand some of the instincts of a dog. A dog is renown for its loyalty, devotion and attachment. But man is gifted with a greater awareness than a dog and has choice between right and wrong. A dog has no choice, the dog moves by instinct alone.

How very wrong! My dog is bad and he knows it! Haha he's not really bad, he's a little rascal though. But no, there is far more going on in a dog. He is not an automaton acting purely on instinct. Spend time with one and you will know!
By the way, any religion that says dogs are unclean, that is an unclean religion!

Oi don't loike the sound of these 'ere boncentration bamps!

That is debatable. Many people believe that dogs have the capacity to think, problem solve, strategize and show compassion by choice. Instinct alone does not account for the complexity of dogs. It is arrogant of man to assume so much about dogs when they do not even know their own behaviors and what motivates them. Sure Pharmaceutical companies have mapped the brain and branded humans with the limitation of being simply a bunch of chemical processes they can now sell us 'if a person has a chemical imbalance'. It is not that simple. Either with humans or with dogs. There are no one liners concerning behavior.

So Sadi was 'projecting' when he wrote those two poems ! Dog lovers are only non Muslim ?
THAT IS PROJECTION !
