There’s nothing quite like the bond between a human being and their pet. I can tell you that I’ve had several dogs and cats in my lifetime and they’ve all been my best friends.

I sure miss all of them a lot…

Here are some wonderful photos of people with their best friends that we think you’ll enjoy immensely.

Get ready to say “awwwwwwwww.”

1. What a good pup!

Ten and fifteen years later. My old pal is still going strong. from aww

2. Let’s go for a ride.

I got a kitten for my 3rd birthday and put her in a doll stroller..16 years later she’ll come to me to get a ride in it. from aww

3. Still BFF.

My daughter and our dog – 12 years later. from aww

4. She chose you.

When we visited the shelter, this one kitten was meowing incessantly. The instant my girlfriend picked her up, immediate purrs and cuddles. She stayed like this for 10 minutes. Of course we had to take her. Four years later she’s still one of the weirdest, sweetest cats I’ve ever had. from aww

5. A loyal companion.

Fifteen years later, still best friends. from aww

6. He got just a little bit bigger.

Eight years later… from aww

He was the first pet I ever had. I was 24 when I got him as a kitten. 11 years later and he still cuddles like one. from aww

8. World, meet Brandy!

This is Brandy and I on her first birthday, and 14 years later on her fifteenth. Happy birthday to my beautiful beloved Brandy!!! from aww

9. Now it’s my turn.

After I got my wisdom teeth out, my cat laid in bed with me while I watched friends. 7 years later (today) she had to get 2 teeth extracted, and we laid in bed and watched Friends together after. ? from aww
