They are man's best friend. At our house he, Cotton the dog, is my wife's best friend. Then comes my daughter. After that on the appreciation scale comes my son who no longer lives at home, and somewhere behind the enjoyment he gets from smelling the garbage can and licking his privates comes the dog's appreciation for me.

After watching this video I can see I am not alone. In the video the owner of this dog appears to collapse. I guess he is hoping for a Lassie like rescue maneuver. Alas, this dog has better things to do and saving his owner just isn't as important as where he is trying to get.
