He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.

My fucking weakness. The relationship of a dog and a child. This is adorable. :’)

My mom was really sick when I was little. My family had a medium-large poodle named Tuxedo. He would sense that my mom was ill and he’d always go check on her. She would always say “Go watch the baby” (me). 
So, Tuxedo would always come into my room, and crawl into the crib with me (by climbing onto dresser and over the walls of the crib so as not to wake me). When I started crying then if licking my feet wouldn’t make me quiet, and covering me up wouldn’t make me quiet then Tuxedo would crawl out of the crib and go find my dad to fix the situation. 
When I was older Tuxedo would do things like lay in bed with me until it was late enough that I was allowed to get out of bed, and then he’d get me up and we’d get ready for school together. On weekends Tuxedo and I would have tea parties, and we’d play matchbox cars together until he got so old that he couldn’t keep up with me anymore. 
Basically, I was raised by a poodle, it’s why I’m so confident and my hair is great.  

Awwww, that’s beautiful.
Makes me sad that people outlive their closest and bestest friends. Our furry companions deserve more time with us.

I know tuxedo would be proud of me today :) but, I miss him too.
