#FridayFacts Be a dog.

The phrase, 'man's best friend' has a cute ring about it. But for many, the saying might be closer to the truth than we think. Tough days at work. Ill health. It doesn't matter how bad things get, your dog will be there by your side.

Though it's lovely to know that our dogs will be there in the most challenging times of life, I'd like to think that the same could be said of our mates. While most will know I'm a big fan of talking about how we feel, sometimes, just like our mutts, perhaps all that is needed is to sit beside a mate in silence.

Whatever it is for your mate, grab craft or a coffee, start up a conversation... and be that man's best friend.
