When I think about it, no human has ever been there for me when I needed them the most as my dog has. He’s become my best companion from the moment I first took him out of the shelter. The way his eyes were looking at me back then is something I will remember until the rest of my life. Dogs really are man’s best friend and there is no doubt about it. And whenever I hear stories like the one below, I realize that dogs are the best thing that has ever happened to this world.

My dog, Camie, defended me and my friend from her (my friend’s) crazy, abusive boyfriend.
We both knew he was an abusive sociopath, but of course being his girlfriend, this was something that she was in denial about for a long time. Finally, she couldn’t deny it anymore and tried to leave him.
She managed to get away from him while he was beating her, and drove the short distance to my house to be safe. My house wasn’t safe, though. He followed her, kicked through the glass on the french doors, and unlocked the bolt from the inside.
I wish I could say that either of us made a valorous stand against him, but we didn’t. She had already gone a few rounds with him and neither of us had any kind of self-defense training. He cornered us quickly and used his fists and my scarves to subdue us. He told us what he was going to do to us both (not going to repeat it) and I had pretty much resigned myself to it, too beaten to fight and for whatever reason, it wasn’t in me to beg, either. I just went cold and numb. I couldn’t even feel the physical hurt. Mentally, I just…left.
That’s when Camie, my pit/lab mix finally broke through the remainder of the french doors and came barreling into the room.
