            Some people look at things and they are in awe or amazed by it, like a sunset or a vacation place or their loved ones. But some people are amazed by the little things, like the rain hitting the side of your window or when you find the perfect dress. Me? Well, I’m amazed by dogs. I’m amazed how they can smell things from a mile away, and how their ears can stand up so high, and how they can run so fast. But the thing that I am the most amazed about, is their love for humans. Have you ever heard the quote, “A dog is the only thing that loves you more than he loves himself”? This quote is one of the most meaningful sayings to me. It makes me realize how lucky we are to have dogs and to have someone to snuggle with when we are sad, or when we just want a hug.

    Sometimes, people laugh at me when I say Luna is my best friend. But she is! She’s my best friend because she understands me like no one else. Her gentle heart always knows how I’m feeling and when I need her to be with me. Her loving personality always cheers me up and puts a smile on my face. She always makes me laugh whenever her long ears and the hunter in her trys to catch a squirrel running across our yard. The thing that she does most, though, is she lets me be myself. She never makes me feel ashamed or embarrassed when I make a mistake. When her soft black fur rubs up against me, and her honey colored eyes look at me, I feel like I belong.

        I feel like every dog owner feels that way. Whenever I’m not with Luna, I feel like I have to be hiding something, but when I come home and see her tail going a mile a minute and her smiling at me through the window, it makes my whole body relax and know I’m safe again.

         “A real friend is someone who walks in when the rest walk out.” This quote makes me realize that the true real friend that I had when the rest walked out was Luna. My dog walked into my life when I was just a little kid and when no one else was there for me. She made me realize that she will always be by my side. Dogs will be by our side no matter what. They will forever know when we need them. Dogs are amazing for that. I will forever be grateful for my best friend.

My name is Macy, and my best friend is my dog Luna. Luna is a lab that is 3 years old and came from a family that no longer wanted her anymore. She came into my life and is one of the sweetest dogs that I have ever met.
