The life and the soul is right next to you, keeping the heart ticking over in the room. You know when a dog’s around, there’s good times. . . It’s like, why would it choose to be around us? What the hell does it see in us? We don’t deserve them! What does it see in us that it’s so like, ‘Well, I wanna be with you, you’re awesome?’ I’m not that awesome. You’re awesome.

In Toronto recently, Tom went on to say even more about dogs!I love dogs. They’re always going to be around, doggies. They’re special creatures. I love all animals, but I think dogs are just fantastic.
And that’s NOT all, Tom doesn’t just love and respect dogs, he says he’s found inspiration from these incredible companions:
I do think there’s a lot about a dog that we can learn from. And I do put the dog into a lot of my characters beca.use a dog, if you watch them, they’re so funny to watch. They spe.ak with their eyes and their body, and I find that fascinating to observe.
And of course it’s not on.ly all that he’s already said that has us gushing. He values dogs for even more than their companionship and how they’ve inspired him. Tom says dogs provide valuable feedback:
[A]nother thing about the dog is you can never fool the dog into think.ing that you’re somebody else, so they’re great bullshit monitors—especially for actors. So if you think you can transform, just try and p.ull off your transformation in front of your dog and I guarantee he’ll see right through your greatest trans.formation, which is quite humbling.
Well, we don’t ha.ve to live vicariously through Tom Hardy, all we really have to do is learn from his messages. Dogs are great, and we can all have amazing relatio.nships with our barking companions. Especially when we take inspiration from this major celebrity dog advocate.
