If you want people to relax, chill and go into their comfort zone, ask them about their dogs.


Talking about their dogs instantly puts them in a good mood.


Dogs are today’s source of positive, even healing, vibes. Just listen to these dog lovers—humans who are in love with their dogs.

Dogs can’t fake their love for you. They are loyal and affectionate. Cats are nice but they like to be alone most times, but never a dog. Dogs always seek company. Every time I come home Nemo comes running to me and gives me a kiss. How can I not fall in love with him?

Orange Juice is important to me because he is family. Having him around for 10 years has definitely made my life more awesome! He’s my ultimate stress buster.

Juliet Tan and her late pit bull, Buddy

Our dogs are important to us because they give us so much love and joy, and teach us the value of loyalty, and to accept people for who they are. They are noble and pure of heart. For us, dogs are better than most humans. They are our kids. We cannot imagine our lives without them.

I was raised by an animal-loving family, and taught to respect them and be compassionate toward them. They remain an integral part of my life because they give an unconditional and unwavering kind of love that no other living being can.

My dog’s warm and enthusiastic welcome when I come home at the end of the day always takes away every ounce of exhaustion I feel, and all he wants in return is an occasional

belly rub.
