Any dog owner can’t describe how much their dog really means to them. Dogs have always been considered “Man’s best friend”, but why is this? Do you really think it is because we give them food and a place to live? Dogs are one of the most loyal animals in the animal kingdom. Dogs want to be a part of a family because they are a pack animal. They want love as much as they want to be loved. Cesar Millan has one of the best articles on the loyalty of dogs and some pretty great stories of their loyalty. Going to college and missing your dog is going to happen to all dog owners and sometimes they are missed more than our parents. When I left for summer session here at Penn State I missed my dog so much but to see his reaction when I walked back in my door at the end of summer was absolutely amazing. Dogs are just naturally affectionate. They want a loving companion just like us humans. Dogs never want to bite or fight to be harmful it is humans that train them to be this way. All dogs have that natural unconditional love. Dogs know everything about their owner, look where they are when you come home from work at the same time everyday they wait at the same spot looking at the door. They get excited every time you come home not because it is time to get fed but because they love you and want to see you. Dogs really are mans best friend.
