Dogs: Loyalty Rewards Loyalty

While some people find dogs overly affectionate and others have had bad experiences with dogs, usually mistreated ones, many agree with the old statement that a dog is “man’s best friend.” As long as you know how to respect dogs, they return the respect. Dogs have a reputation for loyalty greater than any other animal on the planet. This loyalty is often repaid in full by their owner. What experiences have you had with dogs?
