It is Friendship’s Day tomorrow and a happy Friendship day in advance to you!
While we’ve been celebrating this day religiously, every year, if someone were to ask you what “best friend” meant, what would you say?
You would say:
A friend who is always there for you, takes care of you, is trustworthy, will cancel on their hot date if you needed them to, eagerly waits to see you and is the happiest every time you meet them.
Except the “hot date” part, guess who else will do all that for you? Your furry, little, cute, pets! And they’ll do it all with no human expectations and top it with a coat of salivated unconditional love.
If you have a pet, it’s time for you to show them some love and if you don’t, well then, GET ONE! But either ways, here are some favourite characters bonding with their favourite pets that you should absolutely take inspiration from:
Joey and Chandler
The Chick and The Duck were their heart-throbs, especially Joey’s. So much so that till date, Joey doesn’t know what actually happened to them.
Quoting Louis here:
I happen to have a way with those of the feline persuasion.
He may have a hard time dealing with other humans, but with cats? Never.
Ross was one of my least favorite characters from Friends. But when he got together with Marcel, even I had to go aww.
Remember the time Ross made everyone track Marcel down when he had become a star, only to spend one last day with him? Yes. Exactly. On the other hand, he took only Phoebe to the airport to tell Rachel that he loved her. See the difference?
Their story is one of those classic ones, where, at first, one doesn’t like the other and the next thing you know – they spend every living second together. While adopting Stella was a charity case for the Pritchett family and one that was not to Jay’s liking, he ended up loving her the most!
Actually, I should extend that to all the Starks. They’re the only ones on the show that give, at least, some meaning to the word, “loyalty”.
Wasn’t Elliot a saint when he rescued Flipper from an abusive owner? Proving it further that love is all that a pet wants. Not diamonds, not cars. Only love.
Now that you’ve had multiple aww-moments, go get yourself a pet and make every day a Friendship day!
Happy Friendship Day, everyone! Have a great time!

Oh man! If this event was in Bangalore, I would be so on top of it. It would be a great day for our Coco and the kids.
And yeah, just as an update. Here’s Coco, now 4 months old, and already big enough to knock me over.
Here, I have trained Coco to sit while I am giving him his breakfast, so he doesn’t knock me over in his enthusiasm for the food. He’s really struggling to restrain himself here, which is why that pitiful look on his face 🙁 .
I know that for us, Coco is our best friend, but sometimes I wonder whether for Coco, it’s food that is his best friend.
