If you're lucky enough to have a cute pooch in your life, then you know that a dog's love is unconditional. You'd be hard-pressed to find a furry friend as loyal or as lovable as a pup, and even after your pet passes away, the good times you shared together will likely stick with you for the rest of your life.
