A dog is a man's best friend they say, and they're absolutely right. Dogs understand our gestures, sense our feelings and respond with the most comforting of emotions. But above all, their unconditional love for us along with a willingness to stick around till their last breath is what makes them truly special. From watching us do the craziest of things to being there on our most distressful days, they are the silent observers who know us better than everyone else.
