The phrase "man's best friend" seems to be a universal sentiment. Throughout my life, I have heard countless stories told by men, women, and children about their favorite dog. "Blackie" is one of those stories. A young boy and stray dog met unexpectedly and created a bond that could never be broken. Dogs love their owners, understand their owners, and even guide their owners. Without even talking, dogs have the ability to speak to our minds and leave an indelible paw print on our hearts!
