Dogs are considered man’s best friend for a reason. As human beings we make incredible connections with our furry friends, not just dogs but cats, birds, reptiles, rodents, the list is endless. These creatures become part of our family, they bring companionship, love and energy to the family dynamic. I have a friend; she will know who she is, who will honestly tell you her dog is right up there with her children on the love scale. Mind you he is an absolutely gorgeous dog!
