Anyone who owns a dog can tell you of the pure love and joy that comes with owning your own pup. While there are many types of pets out there, nothing quite matches the experience of coming home after a long day of work to be greeted by your dog.
Dogs are very loyal and they respond to very well to the of a leader. They love human companionship and are very friendly. At the end of a long, hard day your happy dog can't wait to greet you. They will be at the door waiting, face smiling, mouth open and tail wagging, ready to dote on you, his best friend in the world.
Dogs travel in packs and to a great deal so do most people. That is why we stick together with those that we have accepted as family. Dogs fit into this familial arrangement easily because it mimics their own family units. Dogs are also incredibly loyal to the unit or family they become a part of, which is truly what makes them the best animals in the world.
For centuries dogs have provided companionship and protection for humans. No other animal is as integrated into the human experience than the dog. There value to humans can best be exhibited by the amount of money that humans are willing to pay for care, food, toys and shelter for dogs.
I do understand what dogs do for us. They make us happy, bust criminals, and even save the lives of others. However, one must be aware that different individuals have different perspectives on dogs. For example, a multi-year report from dogsbite.Org (a public education website about dog bites) shows that from a thirteen year period, at least 433 American people die from dog bites, and it can be assumed that many more would be injured from such attacks. The trauma from an attack may cause one to grow a dislike towards dogs, especially if a dog killed a loved one. Plus, some people may just be allergic to dogs or pets in general, so this may hinder their opinions about dogs. Lastly, some people may have different tastes for pets, just like how we might have different tastes for music or games (Cat lovers, for instance. They might love cats due to their mischievous personality. Think cat videos). While I think dogs are great due to what they do to us, I think that you have to be aware about the subjective word "best" and what other people might have to say when it comes to this question.
