Speaking at the occasion, Dr. Rajesh Grover, Director Science City said that dog is the only living being on earth that loves you more than you love yourself. Dogs make the best friends, and we celebrate them for all the joy and love they’ve given us. Over the years the dog has changed the role it has played for centuries and has had a significant impact on human lives. They perform many roles such as hunting, herding, pulling loads, protection, assisting police and the military, companionship and aiding disabled individuals.
