‘Man’s best friend’ is how the saying goes, but it should probably be ‘kid’s best friend’. When I was growing up my dog Maxi was my best friend. Obviously I wasn’t the biggest dork on the block and I had plenty of human friends that I would ride bikes with and go to movies with, but Maxi was always at home waiting for me and always willing to let me hang out with her. I would talk to her, and I knew she understood what I was feeling, maybe not fully, but definitely my emotions. And now, even though I’m not a kid anymore, Lucas is my best friend and I feel like a little kid when we play and snuggle, because that’s who I was with my first dog. These kids are building a solid foundation with their doggies, and will hopefully continue to have a furry best friend throughout their lives the way that I plan to.
Best friends hang out even though there’s nothing to do but sit around.
How furry is your best friend?
