Man’s best friend… good boys… good girls… dogs touch that part of us that makes us bleed love. They make perfect housemates, amazing travel buddies and unbelievably good wingmen. An interesting study by students of the Northern University in Boston found that human beings tend to show more empathy to dogs than to other humans! (It rests to question whether or not this is a good thing) Other studies suggest that dogs too are sensitive to our emotions. It is undoubtable, then, that the connection between human beings and dogs is, among many other things, special.
If you have a dog, you are truly to be envied and if you are planning on getting one, we wish you a lifelong friend.

This is partly because most of the irregular behaviour observed from dogs is attributed to hostility and aggression rather than pain or discomfort. Resultantly, many dog owners notice several cancers, diarrhoea and infections many stages into their onset while remaining blind to the many habits of theirs that may have endangered their dogs to begin with. Sadly, some owners have lost their canine friends for lack of knowing what may be bad for them. Pestilence like the parvovirus and many nefarious dog diseases all come with exposing your dog to some of the things listed in this article.
