We like dogs. We’ve got over seven million of them as pets. They can live up to 18 years or more, love running around and going for walks and hate to be on their own, needing the company of other dogs or people to be happy. When they are born they are given a warm dry place to sleep with their mum until they are weaned. We think of them as intelligent and loyal. We used to chop the tails off some breeds but that was banned a few years ago. Compare his story to pigs.
