However, there is another role that dogs play that we often take for granted- they are our friends and confidants.
“I have sometimes thought of the final cause of dogs having such short lives and I am quite satisfied it is in compassion to the human race; for if we suffer so much in losing a dog after an acquaintance of ten or twelve years, what would it be if they were to live double that time? The misery of keeping a dog is his dying so soon. But, to be sure, if he lived for fifty years and then died, what would become of me?” - Sir Walter Scott
Dogs have a shorter life span than humans because they are bred to be obedient and easy to train. The purpose of this is so that they can be used by humans, but it also means that they are not as robust as humans and are less able to withstand the elements. Dogs are also killed for their meat, which is why their life spans are shorter than those of other animals.
