Why Dogs Are a Girl’s Best Friend

There are so many reasons you love your dog. They are your furry child, your partner in crime, your shoulder to cry on, your best friend, and a part of your family. Here are some more ways you have grown to love your dog more and more every day. They say diamonds are a girl’s best friends, but personally I’d take my dog over decadent objects any day!

1. They’re there for you on your good and your bad days.

2. They help you to feel safe.

3. They’re made even cuter when paired with other dogs, cats, or small humans.  

4. They listen to every word you say.

5. They’re a great conversation starter.

6. They help you get outside and exercise.

7. They will always give you kisses, wag their tail, and be excited to see you when you get home!

8. They understand the important things in life.

9. You can train them to fetch your slippers, play a game, or sit for a treat.

10. They hate mornings too.

11. Even when they make messes they’re still cute, and you know you’ll forgive them no matter what.

12. They make you laugh.

13. They understand your unique style and don’t care if you wear sweatpants and boots all week.

These are just a few of the reasons why we love our dogs, so comment your other reasons below!
