      Very true @ Dwight this special friend really know how to love us but most of the times we don’t give back the love, the article has given us some good reasons why they are our best friends, we should learn to award them regularly, by teaching them new games and having playtime more often.

    You make some great points here. I have had many animals over the years and my dogs have been my most favorite. I am always so amazed at how smart they are. Sometimes it is unbelievable.

    They are also very loyal. No matter what they are there waiting on you and greeting you with joy and excitement when you arrive home. I believe dogs have been able to help so many humans with things like depression and loneliness. Thanks for sharing.

      I feel we should love our dogs more since they have proved to be our true best friends no matter what, and like you mentioned about depression and loneliness they make the best companions!
      Thank you

      This dog is known for its great patience, high energy, and friendliness. It loves to play and learn new tricks

      This breed is smart, very friendly with humans, protective, loving and reliable.

      Poodles are very good breeds for families. They are smart and calm dogs. They do not shed as much as other breeds which makes them good for children with allergies.

      This breed is one of the most easy-to-train breeds, making it ideal for families without much experience with dogs. Coupled with their gentleness, they are also great with kids and love to play.

    Yes! Yes! Yes! Dogs are truly our best friends!
    I used to have a Mini Schnauzer. She has passed on couple of years ago.
    While we were together, she was my angel. Always smiling, always happy. When I return home, she expresses so much joy.
    I miss her.
    I don’t have time for a doggy friend since. But when I have more time, I will definitely have another doggy friend. They are so worth having! 🙂

    Dogs are truly loyal and they can be our best friends. I have seen stories where dogs have been lost for years but still recognize their owners when they are reunited.
    I recently migrated and cannot afford a dog now but I still admire dog owners who take the time to care for their dogs. I agree that everyone wants his dog to be happy. Even when we have a hard day and not much time for pets, the dog will still be happy to see us and always greets us like a best friend should.

      Very true Luna dogs are very smart and loving if we can continue showing them love and affectionate they will continue being loyal to us, thank you for your contribution, much appreciated!

      Take care Mercy
