7. They don’t keep a messy room like the human teenagers.
8. They keep you company while you’re sick, sad, angry or annoyed with the world. (which is often all at once for me)
9. They are always willing to finish your dinner for you when you can’t.
10. They don’t want all their friends to sleep over every weekend.
11. They will always stand up for you, even if you don’t want/need them too.
12. Who needs a door bell when you have a built in dog.
13. And the best reason of all…. TRUE Unconditional love like no other!!!
