But if you can’t wait that long, we’re here to remind you why dogs rock our world.
It’s hard to ignore the fact that they’re cute and fluffy:
Even if they’re not the brightest at times:
Or they don’t want to share:
But they’ll always love you:
Especially when you need it most:
Even when they can’t reach you:
They make your childhood dreams come true:
And they won’t complain if you put shoes on them:
Although they probably should:
They’ll teach you how to salsa:
Help you keep in shape:
And treadmill like a boss:
They know when to be quiet:
And tuck themselves up at night:
They’ll clean your other pets:
And mop your floor:
Even when they cause the mess:
And though they can sometimes be condescending:
You should never try this:
Just do whatever you can to make them as happy as they make you:
