15 of the Most Famous Internet Dogs
Dogs have been part of human society for thousands of years. They went from mainly being hunting partners to being our friends and emotional anchors.
They have successfully improved our quality of life in various ways, including helping us find bombs and land mines, providing us with emotional support and being excellent guides to those whose eyesight is compromised.
Famous internet dogs make more than just the people they live with happy. While they bring a large amount of happiness, having a dog requires a lot of commitment and dedication.
Some people are just unable to have dogs for various reasons, but does that mean they should miss out on the happiness brought by our canine friends? Absolutely not!
Thanks to the internet, some people are now able to share the happiness they get from their dogs with the rest of the world.
