Dogs are great! If you are lonely, they’re there to keep you company. Feeling unloved?  A big sloppy tongue will give you kisses.  When you come home, nobody gives you a better welcome. They jump up and down and practically dance backwards to see you. All they require is a little dog food, an occasional treat and a walk now and then.  Oh, and don’t forget, they love a ride in the car when their ears fly with the wind when the windows are open.
