While every dog comes with his/her own unique name, they each share one common nickname; man’s best friend. That name is found to be true time and time again. I had always been a dog person, but it wasn’t until I finally got my own little puppy that I could truly understand where that nickname came from. 2020 brought a lot of unexpected surprises, however through a world pandemic and a school closure, there was only one thing that could flip this year around. That’s where Otis came in! After years of begging my family to get a dog, my parents had finally given in. Being a puppy golden retriever with his crazy, energetic personality and his heartwarming smile he never fails to make anyone’s day. Otis makes it clear that the nickname is true, a dog really is a man’s best friend.
