A dog is man’s best friend and if you own one, you will realize that this much is true. When you raise a dog from infancy they tend to become like your own child and can easily become a part of the family. Although dogs do not live forever, their presence in our lives brings nothing more than joy and laughter.

Whether you got your dog from a rescue shelter or you got a new pup, as soon as your dog warms up to you, it’s love all the way. When I first got my dog and it didn’t warm up to me immediately, I was slightly heartbroken. I just wanted to hold it and take care of it, it was the cutest pup to me. I wanted to show it off to the world, selfies and all. A lot of people think they should wait for a perfect time to have a dog portrait painting. However, there is no perfect time, bad things happen and your dog can die anytime either by accident or illness. You should treasure every moment you have with your dog.
