A dog doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, big or small, young or old. He doesn’t care if you’re not smart, not popular, not a good joke teller, not the best athlete, not the best –looking person. To your dog, you are the greatest, the smartest, the nicest human being who was ever born. You are his friend and protector.
