    My cats each have their own way of showing me love, and that they also want my attention. i have a cat named Bugsy and he will stretch and. He reach up to be picked up and he is a hugger! He wraps his arms around my neck and needs to be held and hugged. He has his insecurity moments, but he’s a great cat.

  2. Joan N

    I love that my pup looks up to me for approval on all he does. I think he knows he was rescued and he shows his appreciation to me every day. He gives back so much love!

  3. Mary Ramirez

    My cats are such snuggle bunnies. My baby wants to be held all the time. When I am on the computer, he is chasing the mouse around the screen

  4. Emma

    Our pets love us unconditionally and that’s what makes it so great to own them. They give us so much love and we have to love them back.

  5. lorri langmaid

    So many reason, but on this list the top ones- 6. They’re always happy to see you. 7. Even when they’re at their worst, you can’t help but love them. Most importantly is # 1. They know just how to cheer you up when you’re feeling down.

  6. Lorraine

    That look that he knows this is his family, – that look when he knows he wasn’t supposed to do whatever it was and he hopes ok – the morning kisses; the happy walk – the let’s chase that ball together –

  7. Sheri

    He is the best at putting us before my himself. His unconditional love is tireless. He has the ability to look at you with his big brown eyes and melt your heart with giving you so much love that you know he would do anything to please you. The constant loyal companion that just wants to be with you, how can you ask for anything more.

  8. kathy m

    I love the way they can read your mood, and brighten up your day! They are always ready for a cuddle. You always have a friend to go outside and play with, and they never fail to do something that will make you laugh! Silly boys, they instantly bring your mood up!

  9. Bill Tweedy

    Dooney our Lab is a great travel buddy who goes everywhere with us and goes to the office everyday with his Dad. The best part is how he brightens our day by still being a lap dog and giving lots of kisses❤

  10. Cheryl Chervitz

    I love my dogs because they are always there for me. They get excited to see me and always there to cuddle. They can make me laugh by all the silly things they do.

    He’s my veg out partner,
    He’s got beautiful expressive eyes,
    He’s my gift from heaven!
    His name is Chichi

  12. Michelle Hassinger

    I love all of the above! If I have to pick a favorite, it is that they always know how to cheer me up if I am feeling down.

  13. Terry Poage

    I love my dog and cats more than anything and wouldn’t know what to do without them. I love to watch the cats place chase and when one gets to aggressive my dog steps in and breaks them up.

  14. Michele Cupp

    I can most relate to 3. Being silly is part of their daily to-do list. I got a new rescue 6 months ago. It’s been so fun to see the things she does, not having a very good idea of her personality and guessing at the breed, we didn’t know what to expect.

  15. Linda Szymoniak

    Gee, I agree with all eight – and would add something about the unconditional love they give us. I guess I would relate most to the first one – they always seem to know when I’m feeling down and do everything they can to make me feel better.

  29. randy hok

    What do you love about your pet?

    Dogs regardless of how they feel at the current moment always knows when you’re feeling down, they find some way to comfort you. They know how to snuggle and they uplift anyone’s spirit.

    Every day tasks turn into an adventure when there is a pet involved, things like doing the laundry all of sudden become more fun.

    Dogs motivate you to get out , workout, exercise, go explore, and great new adventures.

    That moment you see them get excited when you come back home, its like they’ve been missing you for a century.

    dogs love you unconditionally

    they dont judge anyone regardless of race, sex, species

    they teach everyone about responsibility and empathy for others

  30. Jeannie Pratt

    I can relate to every single reason on this list of why I love my Little Bit. She knows me all too well and loves me through the good and bad. I can relate to all 8

  31. Stephanie

    Too many to count. From bringing smiles, joy, and laughter to us to snuggling up and checking on us when they know we aren’t feeling well.

  32. Christina Wall

    I can really relate to all of these with my two chihuahua sisters! Most of all I just love that they are my best friends ever!!

  33. LaToya Jones

    I would have to say Number 1. My dog Jigga has been there for me at some of my roughest times when nobody else even knew I was down and out. He always knows and is always somewhere right by my side. I know he has my “back”.

  34. Erin Will

    Yes, I love all these reasons!! I especially love that my dog sits by the window when we leave and will still be sitting there when we pull up. She always is so happy for us to be home!

  35. Celeste Herrin

    #9 They are our best friend through thick and thin!

    They all apply to my little Diva. She is my best friend no matter what!

  36. Dawn Rasor

    Every one of these reasons apply to my dog Izzo but especially especially cuddling! Izzo absolutely loves it when we hug him. He wags and wags and then does this doggie sigh and snuggles closer!

  37. Kaylee L.

    Love this article! Too cute and so right! I love the different facial expressions my puppy makes, she’s super expressive and wins my heart over always with her big brown eyes!

  38. Shelley P

    I can relate to #1 the most 🙂 – They know just how to cheer you up when you’re feeling down. I love that my dogs are always happy, loving and carefree and they make you forget about all your worries. They can be silly too which always makes me smile and/or laugh.

  40. Jackie Lewis

    They always have my back, someone was hiding in my yard from the police. They sensed something was wrong…i got up and looked and sure enough he was crouched behind my car. I locked all the doors and called the police.

  41. Jackie Lewis

    I love watching them lay in the sun on their dog beds on these cold winter mornings. It makes me happier when they snuggle up together. (Especially because they used to fight alot)

  42. Shelley

    My dog Swayze is a big boy but he doesn’t know it. He’s mostly kangal with a little great Dane. He has a very unique personality and he’s lovable too. He loves me unconditionally and makes my life complete ❤

  43. Angela Nicole

    Mine are there to listen to my problems. Although they may not understand what i’m saying but they make me “feel” like they are listening when the ears go up and the head turns to the side. lol

  44. Tina M. Counterman

    They are my constant companions, they cheer me up when I am having a rough day, they are always there when I need them, they dont judge me and they are patient and always seem to know when I need a helping paw!!

  48. Jamie George

    Their love is unconditional is one other i can think of. You named a lot of good ones. Another one is all 5 of mine is my furbaby diary. I lost my so last year and they have listen to me when no one else has. They have been here for me when I’ve been home all alone and no one to talk to. And the always listen and give kisses when I cry to cheer me up.

  49. Cynthia Stacey

    Actually everyone on your list did apply to me to be honest, the one that I liked the best was 4. They’ve seen you at the oddest angles and still think you’re beautiful. I totally agree to this and if does not matter how much money you have or not have, or what you are wearing or if you wear a funny hat – they still love you just for being you.

  50. Heather and Jesse

    This list is so true! My dog does all of these things, but the most important I would have to say is how he always knows how to cheer me up if I am having a bad day. He will do the silliest and cutest things depending on how I am feeling down. Even if I just need a friend to sit with, he is always there with his soulful eyes, ready to make me happy. Wherever I am, he will follow me around, letting me know I am not alone.

  51. Matt Kalist

    My two Aussies know how to cheer me up when I’m down. Turn all social media off and just play catch with my dogs. Major stress reliever.

  52. Jodi Sinclair

    My dogs Gilda & Jackson are my whole world. They saved me after divorce, losing a job and losing my previous dog and cat. I also have 3 kitties, who are such a blessing. My Manny will be 19 in May. He was diagnosed with renal failure almost 2 years ago and we are going strong with IV fluids and low protein foods.

  54. Jan Roberts

    I foster, and what I love the most is seeing a fearful, shy, or sick dog blossom in my home. My favorite is usually the 2 week mark, that is when they seem to realize that they are safe. When I hear a new dog snoring loudly and dead to the world, my heart sings, that is the deep sleep of the rescued. I also have to give props to my resident dog, a tiny Pug named Jelly. Jelly herself was a rescue and has many medical issues, but I can always count on her to welcome the new guys!

    She is a fierce protector
    She makes me smile

    She trusts me unconditionally

    My pups always need hugs & cuddle time, but the best is when they talk to me in either Husky or Aussie. My life has become full of so much joy since I have these two in my life.

Best thing I ever did was reply to that ad. I saw her pic and it was instant love..brought here home to her forever home an hour later.

  60. Ashley Rowe

It’s such a blessing to come home to a tiny dachshund who’s so happy to see us and cuddle up when she knows we’ve been working hard all day. It’s almost scary how she reads us both like a book.

    I can relate to all of these. Hero can cheer me up when I’m down. He can feel when I’m hurting and will come right in my face and rub against me, Lick me to death. Hero is the best thing that has happened to me. I wouldn’t ever give him up or trade him.

  89. Susan West

    I can relate to all of 1-8. Daisy is a chichuaha and she thinks she is a Great Dane trying to protect us. She makes me laugh at the things she does. When we are sick she sticks by you like glue. Dogs in general don’t care if you are the ugliest person on the face of the earth, they still love you. You can’t fake unconditional love and Daisy makes no bones about it. I love my Daisy to pieces.

  90. Brandi Dawn

    I cannot pick a favorite, they are all so true! I think that 1, 2 and 6 are pretty darn good though. I love my doggers more than I can even explain!

  91. Amandas Monkeys

    I’ll always have cuddle buddies!! All my pups love to get under the blankets with us, lay on us, or just be close. Regardless if the hubby is out of town on work or working nights I know I’ll have a fur baby sleeping next to me.

  92. Sharon Jane

    I love how Rogue Marie tries to speak my language (eventually, I figure out what she’s trying to tell me).
    I love how protective Vinnie is of my Mom.
    I love how they both cuddle with me (but never together, because That Just Isn’t Done).
    They make me laugh when they beg from everyone but me.
    Rogue Marie encourages me to crawl around on the floor and play.
    Vinnie teaches me patience with others.
    I love that Rogue Marie and Vinnie are both thirteen years old – and still going strong!
    I love that these two have been a part of my life so long and hope they can stay with me a few years more.

  93. Emily Endrizzi

    The second one is my favorite reason, but I really love the picture of the dog who chewed the face off the stuffed panda bear. So hilarious!

  94. CorreyHope

    1. She always cheers me up with her wagging tail.
    2. Those goodnight kisses.
    3. My constant friend no matter what I wear!
    4. Keeps me healthy by being my park companion.
    5. Always waiting by the door when I come home.
    6. Hogging the bed but those cuddles make up for the stiff aching back!

  95. Shelley

    Snuggles, kisses, they read my mind, know when I’m sick, sit on the back of my chair waiting for me to come home and always begging to go for a ride.

  96. Jeannette Harkin

    All of the reasons are so true but Being silly is part of their daily to-do list is my favorite in regards to my two dogs!

    My pugs are always happy to see me…and anyone else! They get so excited when people come over, and never seem to calm down again until the people leave…

  98. Pamela
