“Friendship isn’t about who you’ve known the longest. It’s about who walked into your life, said, “I’m here for you” and proved it.” – Unknown
After reading this saying, I automatically thought of my dog Julian. I have never, in my 43 years of life, have known the true meaning of friendship, until he came into mine.
In honor of Best Friends Day (today), lets go over my top 3 reasons why dogs are our best friends:
Dogs are the BEST examples of how to live your best life. To dogs, life isn’t about how much money you make, what kind of car you drive, how many followers you have on Instagram, or whatever trivial thing humans think is a big deal.
Dogs just live in the moment and appreciate every part that moment brings. Smelling every blade of grass, shoot that’s like the best thing ever. Going for a car ride, best thing ever. Running through the sprinklers, yup you guessed it, best thing ever!
No matter how little or insignificant you think might be taking place, what’s important is to take it all in. Dogs show us not to take life for granted, enjoy every minute, and just live your best life.
Want to know what “unconditional love” is truly about? Look to your dog for the answer.
Dogs love us without any type of judgement. Your dog doesn’t care how many mistakes you’ve made in life, the clothes you wear, or using you to get ahead. The only thing your dog cares about is Y.O.U., not what’s in it for them.
When a dog loves you, it’s forever and always…no strings attached.
No matter how many lemons life throws your way, you can bet that your dog is ready and willing to make lemonade with you.
Through your toughest, saddest, greatest, and best moments in life, your dog will faithfully be there through it all, no questions asked.
Your dog will NEVER abandon you…how many of you can say that about the humans in your life?
So let’s celebrate all the pups who have come into our lives (even those who are no longer with us) who have shown us the ultimate friendship we all deserve and who we lovingly acknowledge as our best friends.
