100 Reasons Why Dogs Are Better Than Humans

Hello, my name is MissNowhere and I'm obsessed with dogs.

As the ultimate animal lover that I am, I've ALWAYS loved animals, especially dogs, way more than people. That will never ever change. Unfortunately I don't have a dog of my own (at least not yet) but that doesn't change the fact that I love them endlessly. I adore them so much that I fail to understand how some people in the world could dislike them. Yes, I may be obsessed with dogs and not too fond of humans, but it's all for a good reason. Or, should I say, 100 reasons:

1. Dogs aren't evil. They're innocent as can be. No dog is born evil.

2. Dogs don't start wars. No dog has ever started a war. Well, definitely not a real war.

3. Dogs don't discriminate.

4. Dogs don't initiate hatred.

5. Dogs aren't sexist.

6. Dog's aren't racist. They don't care about your skin color, not even a little bit.

7. Dogs aren't hypocrites. In this world full of hypocrites, it's extremely refreshing.

8. Dogs don't lie. If they don't like you, they'll let you know. If they do like you, they'll let you know.

9. Dogs don't fake their feelings.

10. Dogs don't hide their feelings.

11. Some dogs make better parents.

12. They ask for very little. All they need is your love, food and shelter.

13. You can always count on their loyalty. I believe they are the most loyal creatures on Earth. With humans, you can never be sure.

14. They are covered in soft fur. They're like living, breathing stuffed animals. And they even let you pet them as much as you want.

100 Reasons Why Dogs Are Better Than Humans

15. Dogs have big, beautiful eyes. If you ask me, those eyes are so much cuter than human eyes.

100 Reasons Why Dogs Are Better Than Humans

16. They look at you with adoration out of those big eyes. And that produces warm, fuzzy feelings.

17. They aren't conceited. They don't know that they're cute. However, most humans who are cute are well aware of it. It's impossible for dogs to be conceited.

18. Dogs know how to have fun without worrying about looking silly or stupid. Majority of people are too insecure to truly let themselves go.

19. They don't care if you look like a total weirdo. You can leave the house looking your absolute worst, but your dog still won't be embarrassed being seen with you in public.

20. They have no prejudices or preconceived ideas about others. They love you for who you are.

21. Dogs are good for your soul.

22. Dogs are good for your heart.

23. Dogs are good for your mind.

24. Dogs don't play emotional games. No mind games, none of that. They keep it real.

25. They're good at being quiet companions. Dogs seem to instinctively know when you're in need of some quiet time. Humans often really don't get the hint, they just can't shut the fuck up.

26. Dogs make us feel important. They sure have the power to make us feel like we're the center of the universe.

27. They're always happy to see you. Have you ever had a human jump up and down from excitement when you come home from work?

100 Reasons Why Dogs Are Better Than Humans

28. Dogs never ask to borrow things. They will never ask to borrow your money, car, clothes...

29. They don't have ulterior motives.

31. Dogs are the best listeners. They will never try to interrupt or story-top you.

32. Dogs can't talk. Which means no dog will ever insult you, yell at you, belittle you or catcall you.

33. Your dog won't make plans without you. You're always invited to every walk and fetching game.

34. Dogs are the best cuddle buddies.

35. Dogs know how to appreciate the little things. Lots of people seriously lack this ability.

96. Your dog can be your cure for loneliness. When you have no special people in your life, your dog will definitely make you feel a little less lonely.

97. Your dog will force you to be social, for better or for worse. If you have a dog, you HAVE TO leave your house sometimes, which forces you to interact with people, especially since many people love to come up and say hello to the pup.

98. They would risk their life for you. How many people would do that?

99. They're perfect just the way they are.

100. Dogs give the most unconditional kind of love. Theirs is the most unconditional love you will ever receive. People may change and friends may grow apart, but a dog's love only grows stronger.

Hopefully no one gets offended by this take. There's no need to take all said above too seriously or personally. This isn't me talking about every single person obviously, but rather the human species in general. This isn't me attacking people, this is a celebration of the angels on Earth aka dogs. Hope you enjoyed. Peace out! ✌

    Omg I love this a lot I can't believe you came up with 100 reasons. I would save my dogs over a murderer any day! πŸ™ˆ

    Is this still revelant?

    Sorry, but most of these reasons bare no merit because of your infatuation with dogs. Most of the "dogs do this while evul humans are evul and do that bcus they r evul" can be countered with plenty of instances where dogs aren't all that shiny themselves. Dogs are emotional mammals - just like humans. That means they can be just as kindhearted as they can be cruel. I can personally attest to that:

    1) I have never had random humans yell and scream at me when I was simply passing them by, minding my own business. Unlike with dogs.
    2) I have never encountered humans PERPETUALLY angry and distrustful of completely every stranger ever. Unlike dogs.
    3) AND I have never been bitten by a grown human for absolutely no reason whatsoever and scared out of my mind when I was just a fucking kid...

    So no. I'm not saying I hate dogs. In fact I will very likely get one in the future. But all I'm saying that the notion that they're better than humans is in my opinion completely absurd. My experiences just tell me otherwise.

    • Well that just proved my point - they're no better or worse than us.

    • Flex4Ever

      That's exactly what's "wrong" with your experience. Because something bad has happened to YOU involving dogs, it doesn't mean all dogs are like that.
      Dogs do things for a reason. You don't JUST get attacked by a dog because it thinks it's "fun." They usually feel threatened or in any other way intimidated by someone, a movement or a noise it may have interpreted as a threat.
      You can get assaulted by humans for no reason at all, because they're bored or just feel like someone else should pay for their amusement.
      And you can't just do a parallel from what dogs do to what humans do. Humans won't just yell and scream at you if they want to hang out or play.
      Dogs do that, they're straight forward, no filter.
      I'm not saying that whenever a dog barks at you it's because it wants to play, but that could be another reason (besides feeling threatened).
      Humans do bad things intentionally, other animals don't.

    i'm not the first to say it, nor the last. "when i meet someone new, i trust a good dog's attitude to a person more than i trust the person"
    Dogs don't lie or trick, and they seem to have an ability to sense a person's "vibes".

  • EmpatheticLady

    Ahhh, you posted images of an Australian Shepherd and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel! They are among my list of favorite dogs, though that is a long list admittedly. :)

    I just love #89: "Dogs don't ask dick size questions." Hilarious. Of course you threw that in there. ;P Great myTake overall!

    • Ahah, yes, they're such cuties. 🐢
      I had to include that lol xD
      Thanks! 😊

    • Yeah, you can't go wrong with most breeds, though! They're all cute in their own way. :) Hahahaha, I did a double-take while reading that one just to make sure I read it correctly. Sure enough. xD

      You're welcome! Very heart-warming and it made me smile!

  • CHARismatic110

    Yeah, I'm afraid of dogs. Always have been, probably always will be. It's frightens me a little to know that you'd gladly save a dog over a human tbh. But that aside, it is pretty impressive that you came up with 100 reasons

    • Why are you afraid of them? :O

    • Not necessarily sure what, if anything triggered it. I just have been scared of them since I was younger. Then my mom get bit by one trying to shield me. And it was a smaller dog, but it still bit her. Which just intensified the fear.

  • Bluemax

    I believe dogs are wonderful! I really do! I had some of the best dogs in the world growing up. I'm thinking about getting one right now, but I'm not sure if I should keep a dog since I might be going to live on a boat. We'll see.

    I do believe, however, that dogs and indeed all pets, while wonderful and we should keep them and I wish all the people who keep them the happiness they deserve, are not, nor should they be, a substitute for interaction with other humans.

    It is precisely because dogs and pets don't judge us and love us unconditionally that they are not substitutions for human interaction. They do not afford us opportunities to grow as humans and learn how to better interact with other humans. I'm sure Blondie never judged Hitler, and probably loved him unconditionally. I'll bet Blondie's offspring never judged the Goebels, either.

    Sometimes humans need to be judged. Sometimes we need to learn things beyond cuddling with animals. Don't get me wrong, I love dogs (and other pets), and I hope others do, too! But I don't see them as a substitute for interacting with other humans.

  • Stacyzee

    But when u think about it... dogs are the most loyal creature. There's a reason why they are called a man's best friend.

    • I'm not gonna list them all, but there are definitely evil dogs.
      No human is born evil either, but with life some turn evil, same with dogs.

    • Well, it's humans who make dogs cruel by not knowing how to raise them properly. So dogs become "evil" because of humans. However, do dogs make humans evil? Nope ;)

    This has got to be the best take of the year.

    Dogs are obviously better than common humans indeed. I totally feel it.
    About unconditional love: Absolutely agree! The true essential love essence are only left on dogs because dogs don't care anymore :) :D

    Since humans are battling instead of co-operating like a whole, we can't get anything done but only generate unappreciated things like forever.
    Dogs aren't letting their best friend - the human and his owner - down. Never.

  • ResonantGuy

    Dogs are better than humans because they're dogs, not because these 100 reasons. They'd be shittier than humans if they could do stuff like us 😜

  • brain5000

    Look, dogs are great. I love dogs, but they aren't better than the best people, and some dogs do indeed suck, especially older dogs that might have been abused or trained to suck by their owners.

    Fact is that I can only pretend to have a stimulating conversation with a dog, and can only learn basic stuff from dogs. They have no deep and real insight to offer.

    Sure, you can talk to a dog and it will respond, and you can learn some basic stuff about life from a dog (like perspective - my problems are stupid, this dog just needs to play fetch and he's happy), but you can't have an intellectual conversation that will solve a difficult problem or offer deeper insight into the human condition. And some of us need that.

    Therefore, if you can easily substitute a dog for all human companionship, you're probably not the girl for me anyway.

  • Octavius

    I still value the life of an unknown person over the life of a dog. However, there are some people out there that are beyond evil and I'd choose to save a cricket before I'd save them.

    I saw two separate articles about two separate cases of psycho bitches that blow torched their own respective dogs to death just because they wanted to. It made me feel more sick than anything before. Animals may kill each other as a way of life but they don't go to extreme lengths to torture and murder each other just for fun.

  • takumii

    Next time someone calls you a bitch, take it as a compliment B)

  • Nik1hil

    It's no doubt best take on dogs, but I still hate dogs, the stray ones in my locality, barked and tried attack me or bite me, when I was younger, that loud bark and animalistic behavior I had to face occasionally around my house, with those dogs during day and night when I was around 6-12 years old and bunch of 5-6 dogs, they used to hunt pigs in our locality. Everytime I faced then I shit bricks at that small age, I seen them eating and tearing alive pigs into pieces! I was sacred everytime I saw them, that this would be my condition, if I loose one confrontation with them! I don't remember how many rocks and bricks I threw at them to make my way through and to stop them from attacking me.
    I always see an animal in them, unless they are little puppy, otherwise they are just a beast! Next time attack me I will play a lamet throw using its tail or rip it's head off.

    • Nik1hil

      I love little puppies. Like innocent kids.

    • Flex4Ever

      You gotta remember that dogs are related to wolves and it's actually a wild animal. When there's no one to take are of it, it has to do whatever it takes to take care of itself. I'm just saying that they obviously didn't attack or intimidate you on purpose or with the intention of just doing so, they either did it because they saw you as a threat, trying to defend themselves or they saw you as a potential prey. Don't let it out on all dogs.
      It's the same as saying that you'd think baby hitler was cute even though you knew he'd grow up to be the person he did (and who would do that).

    • Nik1hil

      @Flex4Ever, well a kid of the height of 2-3 feets is not a threat, so definitely a prey, and prey defends itself. Well I didn't said I was killing, dogs, but if next time it attacks it will be his last attack.
