In Dog We Trust

Dogs are the most important creatures to ever walk this planet. We truly do not deserve them. In our happiest times and our darkest times, they are always here for us - licking us, cuddling us, allowing us to pet them for hours. Happy? Pet a dog. Sad? Pet a dog. Here are eight reasons why every household needs a dog or seven.

1. They make excellent house guardians.

No need to be scared when you're home alone or you hear a ruckus in the middle of the night. Dogs are always there to protect you. They'll bark at the slightest noise or go after an attacker 10 times their size. Just to protect you. Would your cat do that? Didn't think so.

2. They clean up your food related messes for you.

The best type of vacuum cleaner is a dog. Did you spill your popcorn on the floor? You're dog knows and is on the way to clean it up. Did you drop some chocolate on the floor? This is the one thing dogs aren't good for. Don't let them get your chocolate. They'll die. Moving on.

3. You can say literally anything, and they will get excited about it.

Say anything to your dog in a higher voice than your own and with a goofy grin on your face, and they will give you all of the licks.

4. They will lay in bed with you.

Being single is a great reason to get a dog. Your dog will snuggle right up to you, and you'll never be lonely in bed again. Even if you're in a relationship, I'm sure your bed is big enough for a third party. You know what they say...two is a party but three is a crowd. And who doesn't love a crowd if 1/3 of it is made up of dog.

5. They know when you're sad.

You think you're really good at hiding your feelings. Get a dog and you'll see how wrong you are.

6. They'll never tell your secrets.

Remember in high school when you told your alleged best friend one of your deepest, darkest secrets and then she went on to tell it to someone else about thirty minutes after she promised you she wouldn't? Don't you wish you would've had this article back then so you knew to tell your secret to your dog instead. It's genius, I know.

7. They'll help you stay in shape.

You have to walk your dog! You have to play with your dog! You have to chase your dog around the house to catch it to give it a bath! Want to get in shape? Look no further. Dogs are proven to work 100% better than Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig!

8. They will never leave your side.

Dogs are the most loyal creatures that exist. You could accidentally trip on them and kick them across the room, and they would still love you just as hard as before.

I don't know how humans got lucky enough to have dogs as our best friends. In the wise words of Stephanie Tanner (Fuller House), "'Must've been an angel,' *single piano chord*."

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. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
