“The one unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog… He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer; he will lick the wound and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world…When all other friends desert, he remains.” George G. Vest, speech in the US Senate, 1884
Although they cannot express it with words, every endearing look, every enthusiastic greeting, every lick and every snuggle that they give, all say ” l am here, I am your friend.” By now you might have guessed that I am a dog lover. To me, dogs are furry, four-legged bundles of love. Faithful friends they are indeed. No wonder they are called man’s best friend.
To all of those who feel the same…may your special friend make your day a little brighter.
Peace and love,
