These Photos Will Make You Understand Why Dogs Make Life Worth Living
Dogs are amazing creatures. They are loving and incredibly loyal. They can brighten your day and provide comfort when you are down in the dumps. They are always happy to see you even if you think no one else cares that you exist. They are truly man's best friend, and these photos prove just how great they really are.
They say that animals choose their humans. In this case, this dog chose his friend, another dog. He looks like he will forever be that little guy's protector. How sweet is that?
Raising a dog with disabilities can be just as hard as raising a child with disabilities. Did you know that you can teach a deaf dog sign language? Apparently, it is totally possible. We found this picture of a dog being signed "good boy" to be incredibly endearing.
Missing his human
We do not know the full context of this photo, but we guess that his owner may be deployed in the military. We find it really sweet that his owner takes the time to keep in touch with his fur-baby while he is away. I am sure that we will see this pooch in one of those welcome home videos where the dog goes nuts with joy when his owner comes home from deployment.
Cat got your tongue
Cats and dogs do not always get along. However, there are some cases where a dog and a cat form a bond that is so strong that they are practically inseparable. That seems to be the case with these two. Watching them play must be a true joy for their owners.
It can be very frustrating when you have a pet who is an escape artist. Your heart leaps up to your throat when you go to check on your fur-baby, who should be playing the yard, disappears. It is almost as bad as having your kid vanish if you are a die-hard pet lover. It looks like these folks found an amusing way to keep that from happening again.
Dogs are a lot smarter than we give them credit for. I know that my dogs hate to go out in the rain, so they have to wear raincoats on wet days. But, this guy decided to improvise. He definitely gets an A for effort.
Helping through tragedy
Dogs are really empathetic in nature, but these dogs are specially trained to help people cope with bad situations. I know that the children of Parkland were surprised and grateful for the help that these dogs gave after such a terrible tragedy.
Dogs are just as bad as kids when it comes to fighting over who gets to ride shotgun. Whoever is bigger usually wins the fight and that seems the case with these two fur-babies. The little one is not giving up, but the big guy clearly won.
Adopt don't shop
Photos like this are a big reason why we are firm believers in adopting instead of shopping for your pet. Shelter life is hard. It is like being in jail. They are forced to live under very stressful condition. However, once they find their forever home, they are truly grateful and show it as much as possible.
Could you imagine walking down the street and seeing this? We are not sure what breed of dog this is, but he is pretty cool-looking. He looks like a Wookiee to us. What do you think?
This photo is super cute but also a bit creepy. He almost looks like he is wearing human dentures. That smile is probably the biggest we have ever seen on a dog. Either way, he looks like he is having one very happy birthday.
It is always cool to find your doppelganger, but how often are they almost exactly alike right down to their disability. These two not only look alike, but they are perfect mirror images of each other, missing eye and all.
