If you’re a dog lover, you know they’re pretty much the best. From providing comfort in times of major tragedy, to being awesome with kids to just being our everyday constant companion, it truly seems like dogs can do no wrong.
In that spirit, #IfItWerentForDogs began trending on Twitter this week. People used the hashtag to extol the virtues of dogs and all the ways our lives would be much worse without canine companions.
Some messages were funny, some were heartwarming and some were just plain true. But they all had one thing in common: proving just how awesome (and life-changing dogs) really are. Check out these 25 tweets that totally nail all the ways dogs make life just a little bit sweeter.
