10 Reasons German Shepherds Are The Best Dogs
Alex Tendler

They’re mighty, stoic and goofy in every way. Here are ten reasons why German Shepherds are undeniably the best dogs:

1. Cutest puppies.

Before they become your full-grown partner, German Shepherds are some of the cutest puppies with their floppy ears, big, glossy eyes and their black, tan or white coloring.

2. Personal bodyguard.

German Shepherds are the ultimate watchdogs, and they will protect you for life. While they may appear scary and aggressive to outsiders, you know they are the sweetest pups in the world. For anyone else though, don't mess.

3. Loyal.

Similar to their protective instincts, German Shepherds are loyal to you for life. They always have a special connection with their owners, and will sit waiting for you patiently until you return.

4. Super playful.

German Shepherds have tons of energy and they are very active. They are always up for a walk, run, or game of Frisbee. They also love to bring you a toy, and have you chase them around the house. No matter what the day, their playful side is sure to come out.

5. Goofy.

German shepherds are actually really goofy and silly. They have great personalities, and they will always make you laugh, especially when you’re having a bad day.

6. Obedient.

German Shepherds are famous for their obedience and ability to follow commands. This is why they are great police and military dogs, and have gone on to save many lives due to their obedience and fearlessness. This makes training them pretty easy, and you can also teach them pretty cool tricks!

7. Loving.

More than anything else, these dogs are super loving and have huge hearts. Their family is everything to them, and they would do anything to keep their pack happy and safe.

8. Smart.

Whether opening doors, performing tricks, or even doing everyday chores, German Shepherds are super smart, and they love to show off their skills.

9. Cuddle buddy.

German Shepherds are big, fluffy and the perfect cuddle buddies. They are like a big pillow, and just like they love to play and run, they love to nap with you by their side.

10. Best friend for life

Nothing can replace the special bond you have with your German Shepherd, and no matter what, they will always be your greatest, furriest friend.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
