Pets may be adorable, they may help you populate your Instagram but what they are best at remains hidden until danger is evident. Read on

At the age of three, my closest companion was three-year-old Bruno, my dog. He was my playmate and my guard. Whenever a stranger happened to visit he would keep a close watch in case I was playing out in the garden – just to keep tabs clearly. Over the years there were countless instances of Bruno lashing out at strangers when he thought or felt that my safety was being threatened. He would stand at the ledge of my front porch and wait for me to return home. My mom told me so many stories of how he would howl if I was every late in returning home. He would keep barking at my mother as if to tell her, you shouldn’t have let her go in the first place. Bruno was adorable among many things, but his most amazing trait was his ability to make me feel safe.
