Dogs really are my best friends

People always say how special their dogs or puppies are. They are special, of course, but they are also really important.

A lot of dogs can sense fear and sadness. For example, I was sad one time, but one of my dogs came into my room to snuggle with me.

Also, dogs and puppies can be really excited to see you after a long time. Dogs can even curl their lips back to look like they are smiling. That’s what one of my dogs does. My other dog, Poppy, I should say, just jumps on me until I’m on the ground.

So you may know that your dog (or puppy) is perfectly safe for you, but just make sure that no one around you has allergies.
