During the last 5 years there has been one constant, our pups. Their loyalty, unconditional love, cuddles, quiet presence, excitement, smiles, understanding and lack of judgement has meant the world to both of us.
It has been interesting to watch the way they just seem to know when to keep a low profile and then lavish you with love when you need it most.
They ask for nothing in return but your companionship, love and a big bowl of food at the end of the day.
I can see why they use dogs in all sorts of therapy situations and the bond that is so often created is so unique it can make my heart ache just to see it.
We love our girls. They owe us nothing. We will always feel somehow indebted to them for the calming influence they have created in our house and their continuous devotion to us no matter what the mood might be.
There is much we can learn from our canine friends. They truly are our best friends.
