10 Reasons Dogs Are Man's Best Friend

Who knows how long the saying has actually been around, but when it comes to dogs, everyone knows the title that goes with a dog, "Man's Best Friend." Everyone must have theories as to why they are referred to as our best friend, but here are my two cents. Or ten.

1. They have big ears, the better to listen to you. Like seriously. Whenever I need to rant and just rant, no advice or comments, I can talk to my Sadie and she will listen attentively. No ifs ands or buts. She just sits and gives me her ear.

2. And along with listening, they don't interrupt. Well, usually they won't. If a squirrel runs by all bets are off.

3. They are always excited when you get home. Always. They may not always get up, but their tails sure wag and their faces tell you just how much they love you.

4. They give the best hugs. Well, really they are jumping on you, but they feel like a hug and that's gotta count for something.

5. They will cuddle with you when you are cold or lonely and they will be there when you wake up from a nightmare.

6. Oh, and some dogs even know how to wake you from a nightmare. They can tell and then they wake you.

7. They keep you fit. You gotta walk them to keep them from going stir crazy, so not only are you helping them, but they are helping you!

8. They give you sweet kisses. Even when you may not want kisses.

9. No matter how your day went, or maybe date, you can always count on coming home to a smiling face. (Yes, they can smile. If you've never seen a dog smile, then you are obviously doing something wrong.)

10. Their whole life, or most of their life, is dedicated to loving you. You are their whole day, you are what they look forward to, they always want to hang out with you, jump on you, kiss you, and play.

If anything, we don't deserve dogs. And yet, they allow us into their hearts, and love us as much as we love them. They are beautiful creatures with wonderful hearts. Those are just a few reasons why dogs are man's best friend.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
