Who doesn’t like dogs? Seriously. I haven’t heard a single person say he/she hates dogs (in general). Numerous people even believe dogs to be man’s best friends. Bellow are 5 reasons: why are dogs man’s best friend?
1. Dogs have a bad short-term memory
No matter what you do to your dog, most likely he will forgive you. He doesn’t hold grudges against you. Even if you make your dog mad, he will still love you and play with you whenever you pet him. Do you see how happy he is when he sees you coming home after work? He would wait patiently at your door for hours. When you come home, he is so excited wagging his tail and jumping on you just to say hello.
2. Dogs are loyal
Dogs have a bad short-term memory but a great long-term memory. Most dogs know when their owners are not home. They will feel lonely and sad when they can’t find their owners around. If you treat your dog well, he will never forget you and will always be excited and happy to see you.
3. Dogs understand your feelings
Have you ever wondered why dogs are very understanding? Dogs can mimic your emotions. Based on your body language and the tone of your voice, dogs will response to your current state of mind. When you are excited and happy, your dog will be happy for you; some dogs even jump at you, or runaround to share the excitement. When you’re sad, your dog will look at you with his big puppy dog eyes. He will slowly move around you and even lay his little face down on your knees. He feels sad for you.
4. Dogs are smart and want to protect you at all times
Dogs can do many things if you train them properly. Your dog always wants to protect you. Whenever he hears some strangers approaching your door, he will bark and let you know. If he has the feeling that you are in danger, he will bite anyone that tries to harm you. Your dog can also learn your smell and he can find you when you’re not around.
5. You can learn many things from your dog.
Your dog is a great source of motivation. Most dogs are super active and love the outdoors when they’re outside. They run around and pour out their energy. Dogs also know how to live. To simply put it, dogs act like humans minus the worries. All they do is eat, bark, play with you, love you and sleep. Most importantly, they enjoy the moment. We can all learn something from our dogs. Life is short. There is no need to be worried about things you cannot control. However, we should pour out as much energy as we can on things we love and things we enjoy. Dogs know the secret to happiness 🙂
