What a pretty dog! They are indeed the greatest.

I just came home to my dog after a few days travelling. It was a happy reunion!

Just to prove that Dogs are man's greatest companion, just lock your wife and your dog in the garage overnight and see who is most pleased to see you in the morning!

It's just great to have someone waiting for you when you come home
Your dog is cute too actually everyone's dog here seems to be a lovely creature.
When I'm old I want to have an old farmhouse and just sit on the terrace with lots of dogs and some cats surrounding me.
Heaven.

Yeah, a dog's love is unconditional.
Which can also lead to many sad cases when owners treat their dogs horribly and the dogs just want to please their master

and no i dont own a dog as i live in a flat and there is a 'no dogs' policy :s


ps: please no dog on the menu, i know some countrys eat dogs lets leave that out thx
I don't know how long the dog has been with man, I bet at least 5,000 years or so, but our dog (Beagle) has been with us for 12 years, and I will be sad when she is gone.

They're disgusting, filthy animals who sniff each other's bottoms and do massive poos all over the garden. They slobber everywhere and beg at the dinner table too and they smell utterly awful.

That's my neighbours anyway, I quite like dogs though.

The sight of a dog being taken for a walk in a carriage has become more common in recent years in Hong Kong.

Dog carriages used to be considered transportation for poor people in Europe until automobile engines proved too disruptive for them.
