Dogs are life and we love cuddling up with them more often. Bringing them home, taking their care is an exciting experience just like parents have with newborns. Besides, our feeling to get upset over not finding the pup nearby or unwell remains constant. A canine simple roams around us all day and loves us more than anything, without getting bored.
Taking a walk with buds on footpaths for a mile, playing with him in lawns, and sleeping beside them in the night, are some important aspects of our routine as a dog lover. The dogs are therapists and become our power at times of breaking down.
