Man's Best Friend

Dogs have been known as "Man's best friend" for years and for good reason. Your dog gives you unconditional love like no other. They accept you for you and they never try to change you.

They don't care if you are rich or poor, pug-ugly or the most beautiful person in the world. They love you.

They are loyal, protective, and always ready to listen. They don't repeat anything you tell them.

In other words, they are the perfect best friend.

      Dada_Phil, I agree I'm a dog lover myself. We have tow dogs, one a formerly abused puggle, and a peke that belonged to a friend who passed away due to cancer.

      It's hard to lose a pet, I'm glad you were able to find closure.

      You can't go wrong with a hub that has dogs in it. The dog that I got in Jan is the first one since my chihuhua "Maximum Moose Marphoneous" met his early demise some years ago. I can now find some closure. LOL.
