When we adopt a pet, we welcome them as a new family member and dogs are no exception to the rule. The bond that develops between owner and dog goes well beyond your average frienship.
The word "friendship" doesn't sum up the attachment we feel towards our dogs, and they give just as much back in return. Some dog owners will even say they love their dog as much as their family. The same kind of love that unites parents with their kids, for example.
Here are 19 signs that prove our dogs are the centre of our universe!
