Why Dogs Are Great
Only my experience
1. They are so sweet
Even if you are a terrible person, if you are nice to your dog, they will shower you with unconditional love.
2. They are excited to see you
Even if you only leave for a few moments, they are wagging their tail when you come back.
3. They make you feel good
About yourself. You are taking care of something that really needs your help. Kind of like a baby, but no crying. And they poop outdoors. Most of the time.
4. They are so happy
Simple things bring them joy. It's a great reminder about what's important in life.
5. The make you more active
You take them for walks. You take them places. You have to go to the store more to buy them food and bones.
6. They are good for families
Everyone can work on something together. Taking care of the dog. Kids learn some responsibility.
7. Negative - They shed
Dog hair gets everywhere. On the floor. Your car. On your clothes. Sometimes in your food.
8. Negative - They are dirty
Smelly creatures who don't shower often.
9. Negative - They are expensive
Chalk it up to an experience that you cant get back. Think they are worth the cost, but make sure you can afford one. Get pet insurance too.
10. Negative - They have accidents
Like a child, sometimes they have accidents inside. Hopefully, you can train them when they are young.
