Man's best friend. Who is the genius who thought of this concept? The comfort of hearing his footsteps pitter pattering a few steps behind me, not sometimes, but always; not to mention the adoration oozing from those adoring eyes. The excitement in his wagging tail at the sheer mention of a ride in the truck or his favourite ball, or a treat. Always faithful, usually patient, loyal to a fault - who could want a better friend than this? On the other hand, he may be consumed not with me and our great friendship, but alas, with thoughts of his next meal!
