Nearly 16,000 years ago dogs were first domesticated to become pets, ever since they have become mankind’s best friend. They are there for us when we are sad, lonely, and sick. Dogs are there for us to help notify us of potential symptoms arising caused by various diseases. They are used as service dogs for both the blind and hard of hearing. Dogs protect us from danger, guarding both our homes and our families that dwell inside. They are the first face we see bounding at us as we walk through the door after a long day of work. The relationship that dogs and dog owners have created is an endless bond of love and devotion. It is important to introduce baby to pup upon bringing them home from the hospital. It prevents what we sometimes interpret as rivalry between the two, but what is really showing the pup that this little guy, or girl, is a new member of the family, to love, cherish, and protect just as they do all the rest. There are hundreds of videos floating through the realms of the online world with dogs meeting the newest addition to the family. There are slobbery kisses and barks of excitement. But none as charming and heartwarming as this fantastic little yorkie who made it his duty to keep his newest friend snug as a bug in a rug. The video of this yorkie and his littlest of best friends will warm the heart and leave you with a new perspective of admiration in man’s best friend.
