20 (Emotional) Photos Of Friendly Dogs Being “Very Good Boys,” They Know What Love Is

The List Starts After The Intro

Dogs are known as man’s best friend – and for good reason.

They’re smart, loyal, and have endless, unconditional love for their families.

They also happen to make great babysitters and big siblings for the little humans among us.

Dogs love nothing more than to be by our sides (or to be on top of us, whenever possible) and they’ve certainly earned their place in our hearts.

These precious pups show off all the best bits of having a canine companion. Whether they are heroically saving their owner from a near-death experience or just providing late night companionship for a dad on baby-feeding duty, it is clear that wherever you go and whatever you do, everything is better with a loyal – and furry – friend nearby!
