Yes, dogs are considered to be man’s best friend. They are very loyal and affectionate. They relieve stress and we find comfort in them when we are lonely. We also feel secured when they are around to guard us from strangers.
I remember sometime ago when my dad thought of laying down by the seashore to nap and relax. Our two pet dogs rushed to him and when they sensed he was motionless they started to lick his feet and forehead. When my dad did not react, they started barking and running to and fro to attract attention of people who may be around to help. It was a wonderful sight to see how affectionate dogs can be to their master. Better than most people who wouldn’t care less about other’s welfare. Now I believe animals do think too!
