The benefits of pets’ love for their owners
Not to brag, but did you know a dog’s superior sense of smell and hearing enables them to determine when their owner is upset even before another human can? I know when something is bothering Rose, and on those days, I make sure to give her extra TLC. While I may not be able to tell her how I feel, I show her. If you ever wondered if your dog cares about you, the answer is yes, we definitely love you too.
To honor the beautiful bond between pets and their owners, here are 10 of my favorite quotes:
