My DogsFor decades, dogs have been recognized as man’s best friend. They are amazing pets that bring joy and love to any family. Even if you are a strict cat lover, it is hard not to be moved by the incredible loyalty unique to dogs. They are grateful for every moment they spend with their owners. They are amazing companions with an endless amount of love to give. Dogs do not judge you; they offer their love unconditionally. Whether you’re poor or rich, their tail still wags when you walk through the door.

When he was a few months old, he ate a sewing needle which punctured his stomach. The veterinarian informed us that Cooper would die without this costly surgery, which my sister insisted having for him.

Andy would bark for hours a day, which was incredibly annoying. I tried many different methods to teach him not to bark. I used the discipline-then-praise method, which did not work. I then bought a water bottle so that I...
