“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.” — Josh Billings

The average dog can understand up to 200 words, but no matter how hard we try, our dog will never learn to speak.

However, in new experiments, it has shown that dogs are incredibly intuitive and aware of their surroundings. They can understand our feelings by reading the tone of our voices and facial expressions. A dog can notice when we are unhappy and they are ready to help us at any time.

A dog can bring so much laughter and joy to our lives. (h/t)
