Friendship between humans and their pets

My Best Friend

By: Abby Jenkins
Black and White
Thick and furry
Fast as the wind
Always in a hurry
Couple of spots
Rub my ears
Always comes his name he hears
Loves his ball it’s his favorite thing
What’s most fun for him? Everything!
Great big tongue that licks my face
Has a crate his very own space
Big brown eyes like moon pies
He’s my friend till the very end!

The saying goes that “man is dog’s best friend”. Others find that other pets are also up to the task. The companionship that animals offer is different from human interaction. Human communicate with speech and although this is an advanced form of communication, it has its limitations. Sometimes people struggle to say the right thing when what we really need is to be simply there for each other. Because animals cannot talk they are superior to humans in detecting the feelings of others. A pet may be able to offer a level of companionship that is deeper and more satisfying than human interaction.

Pets are always there to comfort you and they somehow always make you fell better when you are feeling down. Loosing a pet can be very hard on people because they tend to build very close bonds with their animals. A friendship with a pet is one of the strongest bonds that humans have with animals and when you loose that pet you loose that friendship and it can be really hard on some people.

  1. I like this idea…and I like your thinking process. Could you find some evidence other than a poem? or could you reference the poem a little more?
    I do want to contribute this video for your review…my nephew has Downs Syndrome and his mother (my sister) was circulating this video about another little boy and his Golden Retriever…I think this was taken in Japan:
    reflective; attempts to synthesize information and form new meaning; words chosen mostly reflect author’s personality and brings content to life for the most part; sentence fluency is mostly achieved
    few spelling errors; few grammar errors; some formatting to help make the post easier to read
    one piece of multimedia;may be categorized or tagged
