They've been hailed as 'Man's Best Friend' for a reason.

1 - FACT: Huskies never misuse the word 'literally' when talking about things they mean figuratively. They bark - which is far less annoying.  

2 - Dogs can mate with wolves and produce fertile offspring. Do you know any Human-Wolf hybrids? Any Wolfans? Any Huwolfs? No.

3 - Most dogs have an average life expectancy of 15 to 20 years. In comparison your annoying in-laws are pretty much immortal.

4 - Dogs only sweat through their paw pads so unlike people in public places during the summer time... Dogs aren't completely disgustingly clammy do be around.

5 - Dogs have never willingly worn crocs and used the excuse 'I wear them for comfort and convenience over style'.

6 - FACT: Golden Retrievers have never peer-pressured anyone into drinking alcohol or doing drugs.

7 - FACT: Border Collies didn't make dub step a popular subgenera of music. People did.

8 - Even if you're horrendously unattractive... Dogs will never be ashamed of being seen with you in public.

9 - Dogs make way better wingmen than people and are always down to look cute in your tinder profile photos.

10 - Petting dogs has been proven to lower the blood pressure of their owners whereas attempting to pet other people has been proven to increase sexual-harassment lawsuits.

So the next time you wonder why you have no problem watching tons of people suffer through over the top gruesome death scenes in movies but always feel a profound sense of sadness at the end of Marley & Me, refer back to this list for some reassurance.
