For Ted's whole life he has always loved dogs. Ever since he was very little he enjoyed being around dogs. It brought him great joy every time he saw a dog. Even in high school all he could think about was dogs and how great they are. When he was older he still couldn't stop thinking about dogs. It was all he could think about. Every time he thought of a dog it made him smile. It was his focus for most of his life. The way that Ted feels about dogs is the way Ted feels about art.
