ThatStrangeKid42
We all know the saying - for the many thousands of years we humans have lived on this planet, the one other species that has always been by our side throughout the good and bad, the war and peace, the struggles and reliefs...it is the domestic dog. Most people in the U.S. have a pet dog. They are smart creatures, they are talented...did you know a dog can smell up to 60x better than a human? They have protected us, working as military helpers, firehouse dogs...a dog cheers you up! Therapy dogs, puppies...no other animal is as sensitive to human emotions than the dog.

This list is dedicated to the one other Earthling that has stuck with us, always by our side, through thick and thin. And will be by our side until the end. Woof!
