Question by Judy S: How do you know when your love for animals becomes an obsession?
I have a friend who really loves dogs (Animals in general but is a dog lover) and I know it is completely normal to feel sad when you see an abandoned dog or a hurt dog but the deal is that if she see’s an abandoned dog she can’t get it out of her head all day or even days. It saddens her so much that she gets depressive. How do you know when it is a normal love for animals or when it is something else. I would appreciate serious answers since this is a serious matter.Thank You.

Well, feeling that way is completly normal…… But when you start getting over 9 animals, thats when it starts to get obsessive. I realy hope this helps! :)

It appears that your friend has had past experiences with dogs. She may have had a strong attachment to a dog growing up to the point where it was the only source of comfort. My thoughts are that your friend might have had a rough childhood and her dog was the only thing that would make her feel better. Now that she is older, she attributes those feelings to every kind of dog and has that same feeling of attachment as she once did. So whenever she see’s an abandoned dog she may relate that to herself because she understands what its going through. I don’t think she is obsessed with dogs though, just the fact that they are abandoned brings up past memories.

I wouldn’t call it obsession. I call it compassion. Your friend has a great sympathy for animals. You can call it obsession when your friend start smelling their asses every minute.
