I own a pack of dogs, and always have, they have always treated me better than anyone else, and love me unconditionally..
The youngest one “Bartjie” is his name, is my wife’s dog, and was at her side (even on the bed) whilst she went through her last cancer episode. He knew when she was not at her best and would follow her everywhere. The first to greet her on returning from a chemo session, a lick behind the ear his form of greeting. then on the bed with her, and there he’d stay unless she arose for something.
The other three, belong to me, and cats have no chance with them, if they can they will follow them up a tree as you can see below..
