Anyone who owns a dog thinks their dog is the best of them all. And while every puppy is indeed adorable, I am obviously biased towards the yellow labrador retriever. If you're thinking about getting a dog for your family, a yellow lab might be your best choice! As a proud owner (alongside my family) of Violet, our puppy who is a year and a half old, I can give you great 7 reasons why these dogs make the best pets.

1. They're wildly energetic

Especially as puppies. Yellow labs have incredible amounts of energy. It may borderline annoying at times, but you just have to remember that they just want to play and socialize with the best intentions!

2. They're great for families

Anyone who has raised a yellow lab from puppy-hood knows how affectionate and loving these dogs are and can grow to be.

3. They're always friendly

Right alongside being great for families, this is one happy dog.

4. They love to swim

My puppy may wear a lifejacket when she jumps into the water, but she definitely loves to swim. In fact, the beach is one of her favorite places ever!

5. They get along with other dogs

Yellow labs don't have a reputation for being crazy or aggressive, and they always love to play with any dog they encounter on a walk or in a park.

6. They're protective

Just because yellow labs don’t have an aggressive reputation doesn’t mean they won’t always protect their owners no matter what.

7. They’re the cutest dogs!

In my opinion, they’re even cuter than chocolate and black labs. Just look at this face!

Open Your Eyes, Animals Are Gay, Too

So are animals brainwashed, as well?

Gaycism | gay + racism | noun

Intense fear or hatred of homosexuality

Homosexual sex, relations, and love are exhibited through prehistoric times, the era of the Greeks and Romans, and Victorian England. However, human beings aren't the only known gay creatures. Animals, ranging from lions, dolphins, monkeys, penguins, giraffes, bison, warthogs, lizards, elephants, hyenas, and other species can also be gay. You know why? Because being born gay has to do with biological origin—genes.

Don't believe me? Believe the scientific evidence, unless you're against science, as well.

Scientists have claimed that "homosexual behavior... is not only common, it's the norm." Although these cases were once seen as anomalies, these relations have been observed for decades, and Bruce Bagemihl's "Biological Exuberance," brought to light how common homosexuality is within the animal kingdom. Gay behavior is exhibited in approximately "10% of prevailing species throughout the world."

So many animals participate in homosexual relations as they seek for pleasure: "sexual intercourse, courtship, emotional bonds, partnership, and even child-rearing behavior." Even more noteworthy is the benefit, specifically as an "evolutionary mechanism," these behaviors are and how they are advantageous to the animal kingdom. Ergo, although homosexual relations seems to be "evolutionary paradox," natural animals continue to express these behaviors, which strengthen bonds between creatures.

So, why can't humans do so, as well?

The fluid sexuality of animals include us humans—another natural species. Additionally, don't argue that humans are more developed beings than other animals and, thus, are not categorized with animals. Please, we are mammals—a specific type of animal—and being gay is not "purely a cognitive trait of human beings."

Shockingly, I've had a generating conversation with one of my peers about the gay community, what it means to be gay, and the reasons behind one's sexual orientation. I was horrified by the individual's words. Although I know I can't change people's opinions, I hope to help show the world the innate behavior homosexuality is: No, the gay parades, flags, and glitter are not brainwashing humans. Instead, sexuality—heterosexuality, homosexuality, and the in-betweens of the spectrum—are quite simply naturally embedded in our DNA.

In our world filled with hatred, there is no room for gaycism. Animals aren't homophobic, so are the more complex of the animals—humans—filled with such fear?

I think I follow more dogs than people on Instagram. Humans are cool and all, but dogs are my weakness. I have a puppy of my own and there are few things I love more than dogs. There are so many good dog accounts to follow on Instagram, but I can't recommend all of them in one article.

Below are 6 of my favorite dog accounts on Instagram!

1. Atlas

This floofy boy is one of the best boys around. He is a beautiful Samoyed who posts often. Throwback photos to his puppy days will melt your heart for sure.

2. The Golden Ratio Girls

Five good girls on one account! The woman who owns these dogs is fantastic, she posts on Instagram and Snapchat all the time. Their names are Jasmine, Venkman, Maggie, Hopper, and Queso. They're all good girls who love carrots.

3. Moose

Not only is Moose a very cute good boy, his owner also owns a fox! Juniper the Fox is wonderful, and she has a "boyfriend" moose who I love. Both of them are adorable and you should follow both accounts.

4. Sporty

Sporty is a next tier good boy, he takes himself for walks! He is such a good boy, even when given freedom in busy downtown areas. He loves walks and pets and being happy.

5. Bunsen

Bunsen is a Canadian boy! So you know he must be a nice boy. He spends most of his time outside exploring. His tongue is usually out and he likes to go to school and help with test anxiety.
