I want to start with a phrase of author and photographer, Roger Caras:
“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”
I love dogs, and during my life I had several of these beautiful and faithful friends to keep me company through good and bad times—happiness and sorrow.
Come to think of it, I believe that a dog can be a better friend than a human. And, I’ll tell you some of the reasons why:
★ He’s ALWAYS there for you
★ He doesn’t JUDGE you
★ He loves you UNCONDITIONALLY
★ You mean the WHOLE WORLD to him
★ He shows GRATITUDE and APPRECIATION because that’s the way he feels and not because that’s the way he’s supposed to act
★ He remains at your side through good AND BAD TIMES
★ You’re his NUMBER ONE PRIORITY
★ He loves you EVEN when you’re moody, upset, or even mad
★ He REMINDS you that you can find happiness in the simple things in life
★ He SUPPORTS you even when you make mistakes
★ He ENCOURAGES you even when you’re down the drain
★ He STAYS by your side even when you’re upset, and you send him away
★ He KEEPS all your secrets
*I apologize for using “he” instead of “she” or “he/she” but it’s the force of habit since I always had male dogs.
Here is another great quote about dogs by actor, Johnny Depp:
“The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.”
Do you agree or disagree that a dog could be a better friend than a human?
Can you think of any other reasons why a dog could be considered a man’s best friend?
