Prowling Dog first appeared on the scene in 2012, with the announcement,

"May 31st, 2012
Prowling Dog will blog on a variety of topics once a week. I tell the truth, even if it is controversial. I hate lies; as a famous person once said, everyone is entitled to his opinion but not to his facts. Facts are facts. My first blog will appear this coming weekend.

The blog started with a series on human relationships. To maintain the record PD is republishing some of these.

People choose friends for a variety of reasons, but there should be only reason for doing so, as the Australian author Nikki Gemmell wrote, “cultivate your friends for what’s in their heart, not for how they look or what they do – or what they can do for you” (The Australian Magazine, June 02-03, 2012). It is simply wrong to treat people as consumer items, pretending to be their friend, using them and then discarding them, but that happens too often. A true friend gives without expecting anything in return and never leads anyone on.
