An elderly woman sat alone in self-isolation started writing letters to her next-door neighbor's dog, who then responded in the most amazing way...
Never before have we been so grateful for our dogs.

As a result of the ongoing medical pandemic, the majority of the world is currently in lockdown.

But it turns out that our pets are making the best quarantine partners.

Dogs have always made for some pretty great company.

During this pandemic, our dogs have proven to be excellent forms of quarantined entertainment...
And many of us are idly spending our days playing with them, cuddling them and, in some cases, making toy versions of them.

They make for a great excuse to get out of the house, too.
Most dog-owners have been avidly walking their pooches as a part of their daily hourly exercise allowance... Though not every dog is too pleased with this.

But not everyone is lucky enough to have a canine of their own.

The loneliness can be crippling.
