Who doesn’t love a good dog story?
There’s a reason why they’re called man’s best friend.
George Graham Vest actually coined the notion during an 1870 U.S. Supreme Court Case:
“The one absolute, unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world—the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous—is his dog.”
So pull up a comfy chair and get ready to give some virtual belly rubs.
To start your week off right, here’s a roundup of some of the best doggo tweets from the last month.
1. In pursuit of all the cuddles
Why doesn’t the kitty love me as much as you do?

It was not me. Not the bread, not the tomatoes.
Look at my innocent face!
Behold: the face of a dog who ate all three feet of a fresh baguette and chomped into three tomatoes, an apple, and one of my wife’s shoes when the family briefly stepped out of the house this evening pic.twitter.com/eupXLQW30u
