Dogs or humans, dogs or humans? Hmm…it’s a toss up.

9. You’ll never hear the words “I’m bored” from your little tail-wagger, although she usually finds a way to tell you in her own way.

10. You know that your closest loved ones will always be there for you. But for your pooch, trust and loyalty are built into her nature.

11. And in this life, your human soulmate may be a little hard to find. But when you have a dog, as long as you give her lots of love, she will be yours…furever.
