Dogs You Can't Resist

By Cathyrin @CatherineBaleda
Our dogs will love and admire the meanest of us, and feed our colossal vanity with their uncritical homage.  (Agnes Repplier)

"Novak Djokovic, the world's number one tennis player (as of now), is in distress after being told he cannot bring his pet poodle Pierre with him to Wimbledon."
Dogs You Can't Resist
This is in accordance with the news from London's Telegraph. In fact, Djokovic is said to be very upset that he can't bring his pet, Pierre and considers this situation a very serious issue. Whew! Indeed, the truth of the famous adage, dogs are man's best friend could be seen here. Guess he needed aid from people in nursing scrubs and nursing shoes in order for him to be stress free.hehe. Just kidding.
As a part of being grateful for making this blog from pr0 to sudden pr3, I will post today, the vanity of man when it comes to their bestfriends from the animal world- the dogs.  Men are generally a being for pleasure and for love. No wonder that many people adopt different pets, since pets will give you both pleasure and love without asking for anything in return. Dogs, specifically will even consider their caregivers (not men and women in nursing shoes and nursing scrubs but their owners) as their masters. Furthermore, they consider their masters as their gods. This post is for the vanity of humanity when it comes to the most beautiful dogs we want to have (if you are a dog lover). Here are some breeds of dogs you can’t resist to bring home with you.
