Chances are that we don’t need to tell you dogs are pretty damn special. There’s no other animal that has a friendship as strong with the human race as dogs do. It’s true that cats are probably the most popular pet around the world, and perhaps the most heavily meme’d, but dogs have been bred over centuries to aid humans in so many helpful ways, which has probably created this unshakable bond. It honestly makes sense that doggos are used in hospitals, schools, nursing homes, and other institutions to comfort ailing humans. Unfortunately, we don’t have any therapy dogs to boost that dopamine, but we’ve got the next best thing—heartwarming dog memes!
