As a woman who is 42 years old I can tell you that people can be less then desirable. They can go from being good friends and family to people you cannot trust and people that hurt you. My dogs would never do any of that to me. That is why I believe that dogs are the best friends to have. They love us unconditionally. They are always so happy to see us and will never treat us badly or betray us.
I can be having the worst of days and they just show me love. I can walk in the door from being gone 10 minutes or being gone for days and they act like I am the queen of England. I am the queen of their world. I can do no wrong as far as they are concerned. They will bark to be near me if I close the door on them. They will wait outside the bathroom door until I am done and long to see my face and hear my voice. As someone who suffers from anxiety and depression I appreciate their unconditional love more than I could ever explain. If you are having issues and are able to get a dog or a pet I highly recommend it. There are moments in life that these guys have just helped me through when nobody else could have. They are my best friends.
