There are many reasons why dogs are a great choice for man’s bestfriend. Dogs provide
many benefits to mankind. For example, they have been trained to provide valuable services to

they have proven to be loyal friends and companions. George Graham Vest (1830-1944) once

One of the most hotly debated topics between pet owners has been the differences between cats and dogs. This is because each of these pets offers its own unique qualities that millions of people love. As someone who has owned both cats and dogs for many years, I appreciate many of the different qualities of these two animals. Both exhibit their own unique qualities that people need to take into account when choosing between them; however, I believe dogs are the better pet because they are more sociable, smarter, and more loyal to their owners.
The first reason dogs are more superior than cats is because the dog is a more sociable animal. A dog’s natural tendency is to be aVIEW DOCUMENT

Now even if the funeral took place some three weeks ago, it seems rather strange that HamletVIEW DOCUMENT

Some define a bestfriend as a person who you can act silly with, who loves you for who you are, and will be loyal to you. Also, a bestfriend is described as someone you want to spend all your time around, and never get tired of them. These qualities can be found in people through different types of cultures, races, and countries. However, they can also be found in animals, and most commonly in the dog. The phrase “a man’s bestfriend,” did not cling to the dog for any reason, it’s because dog’s share the same qualities as a human bestfriend.
