When I was a kid, I used to have pet dogs. I love them very much. Once I was betrayed by my friends, I told them animals better than human....it seemed so childish....Frankily I do think My pets better than my friends, they never betrayed me, my dogs more loyal to me. My dogs knew when i was sad, they would sat beside me quietly. when i was happy they would look happy too.They will be my best friends forever. Do you feel that animals can be your best friends?

Ya my friend, pets are far better than many of our friends. I've 3 pet dogs in my home. Among that I love one my friend. Its emotions used to be wonderful. When we are upset it understands us and comes near us and tries to pull us and even shout at us. When I'm happy, it used to be soo happy that it used to jump back and forth infront of me. And even fights with me. If anyone speaks of it, it'll silently come near and patiently haer what they ars speaking. If we said anything bad about it, it used to see us very much emotionally that we feel pity over her. When its too happy, a dark brown coating is formed shrinking the black in the eye. And when she's upset that we didn't provide her what she wanted, the black in the eye will engulf the brown. Its an awasome dog my friend. Happy morning.

Animals are adorable and they hardly let you down. When they do something wrong they dont do it on purpose, but they are just animals. They are loving, adorable and friendly. I really love them.

As far as I consider, it's perfect if animals can speak. Yes, as you mentioned animals always show their loyalties to us, and follow our mood accordingly, we are happy and regard animals can be our friends. But we don't know what are animals thinking about it, do them have any critiques on us, and them feel comfortable while showing their mood according to ours?

Of course, all animals could be a good friend. But in my opinion, the dog is a very good friend. it can take a joke, play, taken a walk, exercise, and keep the house. It did not need to be locked in a cage all day. So it was free to roam in our yard. If you have a snake in the house. You had to lock it in a cage of snakes, right? If allowed to roam, even your neighbors will be afraid when it sneaked out of the house, is not it?

My cat is my best boo boo. I am not sure if he could be my best friend. he does listen to me when I talk to him. But,he can't answer me back. he stays with me all night long. Watches out for any mice,cleans himself,and eats my food up. I guess he could be my very best friend. My daughter does not eat all my food.

Hello asanlee me too used to share an quality time with some of mine pets at my aunt's house at my native place.Yeah it was an dog, named rocky, labrador, good in height and physics, and also loyal to me, never hurted me but accompanies me wherever i used to go.It was an good friendship between us, we used to spend all the night together.Me too here in city have some stray pets, when some of mine firends betrayed me it was an worst experience but due to pets i shed off the weight of betrayal and enjoy my life as it was.Animals do can be our best of the best friends for in our lives, and we must also take proper care of them, to expect good returns from them.Anyways keep it up with your pets and animal love.Happy mylotting.

I believe animals can be very great friends. just have to give them companionship they are looking for. now for friends well some can be bullheaded. I also know what you mean about be betrayed. I have had my share of not trusting people. I really don't have many friends and the select few that I have is like maybe two or three. rarely see each other on a regular. so don't blame you about how you feel about your animals. they are great to have around. I have an iguana and a new put bull puppy! one day they will be loyal to me.

I love animals; especially cats that I have had practically all my life. I too, have known heartache regarding so-called "human" friends and who was always there to pick me up when I was down? The cat! So, yes, animals CAN be your best friends and quite right too!

I think animals are wonderful and I really wish I had a dog of my own to keep me company! I remember having a pet dog as a child and his name was Patch! He was so cute and so loving and the thing I love about dogs is the fact that they show you unconditional love! Dogs don't judge you and they accept you for being you! They say that animals have this extra sense, they can sense when things are wrong and they cuddle up towards you and try to offer you comfort. I really hope that I have another dog in the future but I want to make sure that I'm ok financially. I'm sure that I have heard also that having a dog can be a great form of therapy! I'm definitely in need of some of that comfort! Andrew

Animals are amazing companions. They are intuitive, compassionate and intelligent. I have a dog and a cat and I would be utterly devastated if anything happened to them. Note though, that I said companion. I also have a husband and a son and if the house caught on fire, there's no question who I'd run to first. My husband is my best friend, not my dog. My son is my life, not my cat. I once dated a man who literally revloved his entire existence around his cats. We had to be home at certain times to make sure they got their "gravy dinner," and we'd have to stop watching movies so they could be let in and out of the house by certain points of the moon in the sky so they would have enough light or not be out too late. He was obsessed with their every comfort. It occurred to me that he treasured his animals over people. I love animals. I think they are invaluable to us as humanity. But, I do think that there are times when we go can over-do it. To deem an animal a best-friend, which would be defined as a recipricol relationship, seems overdoing it. A dog certainly isn't going to help you with a problem the way a girlfriend would or isn't going to talk to you. But, he will be of comfort. An animal is very near a best-friend, the closest thing to it but without actually being it.

I like animals very much. And i think their can be my best friends because their are fidelious and compreensives. Their silence give me force and I know i ever can confidence then. They'll never left me or say me a lie or a offense. And they'll never say anything that I tell their. I think animals are the best friends that a human can have.

Specially dogs, they are so loyal to their master. Dogs are more loyal than us. They deserve our love. They also releive our stress.

Pets are a hundred times better than most human companionship. I have had them all my life, and as an adult did some time rescuing dogs . I have retired but still do it on an as needed basis. You always know what your dog is thinking because if he don't like what you are doing you will get bit. Unlike people who will go behind your back and talk about you to others, stab you in the back when they chance presents itself...I have birds, dogs, dragons,and a couple ferrets and I wouldn't have it any other way. Pets are therapy, good for your blood pressure and great on a cold night. My 5 dachshunds know when i am settling in to watch tv and they all get under the blanket on the couch and will stay there for hours without complaint!

I like to watch and play with pets, but I don't like to raise them. It's hard to keep them tidy and to teach them to keep the house tidy. Moreover I don't have enough time to care about them. I think that sometime people raise a pet to cover their loneliness or they feel safer because a pet can't make any harm for them, but I have many good friends to play with, so I don't need to find an animal.

I love animals and yes I think they can be great friends and even best friends. They give you unconditional love and are very loyal. I think they have all the qualities to be a great friend and we have heard many stories where pets have saved their masters' lives. They also relieve you of stress and keep you healthier. People who have no pets are missing out on something really nice.

HI! Yes, I like animals and I also think animals can be my best friends. As I was child I have many pets- cats, dogs, hamsters, fishes pigeons. And I mean at the same time, not in different years. I was very busy with taking care of them, but I liked it and still like it. Now I have a cat, which I have found on the street. It is grey and very cute. The most animals as an amount, that I have ever had, are hamsters. At one time I have had three pregnant female, and each beared 7 cubes, and suddenly I had 34 hamsters at home. I didn't know what to do, and I go to the market and sell them, because no of my friends wanted them.
