The special bond between children and the family dog

Anyone knows that the bond between a child and the family dog can be very special. The pet often takes the role as the most loyal companion, a trusted soul mate and a good friend to play with. We have collected a few great photos of the dog-child relationship….No doubt that this is love!

But our fluffy pets are not just for fun and companionship. Scientists have actually found that children who grow up with pets are less likely to develop asthma and allergies later in life. And, they are less likely to grow up overweight or obese. So, a dog in the house can actually be quite a lifesaver …. and the cute-factor is just a great bonus!
