Man’s Best Friend

16 Jun

In honor of Father’s Day, we can’t forget the important role a human dad plays in a dog’s life – especially one as active as the Labrador. This sporting breed, or better known as a gun dog, is a certainly a man’s type of dog. They’re athletic and love to swim, run, play catch and retrieve. And, Bailey certainly has the energy for all the above in one day! She is an active family member and a trusted companion. Its no wonder dogs are known as man’s best friend.

Old Drum, the dog who inspired the catchphrase “man’s best friend,” might have been a Foxhound, but he was a sporting breed all the same. Thankfully, times have changed since 1870, but the relationship between man and dog have not. Below are the top ten reasons Bailey loves spending time with her master.

Top 10 reasons Bailey loves her Dad

  1. He is the one who feeds me dinner during the week when mom is at work.
  2. He doesn’t count how many treats I get a day.
  3. He plays tug better than mom.
  4. He runs faster than mom.
  5. He roughhouses with me.
  6. He gives me belly rubs & knows exactly where to rub my ears.
  7. He gives me kisses on my nose. (I really like those.)
  8. He doesn’t use a baby voice – I’m 3 now.
  9. He treats me like a dog, not a baby.
  10. I don’t hurt him as easy as mom.

While Bailey is definitely a mama’s girl, she is devoted to both her masters. And let’s be honest, sometimes she just loves being a crazy Labrador with her dad.

Bailey and I wish all the dad’s out there with furry babies a Happy Father’s Day!
