Weekly Photo Challenge – Friend!

To some people, having a pet at home makes their life more interesting. Pets are like family members to some and are treated with the utmost care and affection. Many Pet owners and lovers shower their pets with love. Just as they do to humans. They protect their pets, play with their pets, take them out for walks and just enjoy great moments with them. Pet owners take great care of their pets.

It is said that ‘a friend in need is a friend indeed’ and some pets can fit into this saying. The dog is said to be man’s best friend. Wow!

This is because, dogs have some peculiar characteristics that distinguish them out. They have the attributes that any good friend should possess. In today’s world, it is really a tough task to find a true friend. Human beings have become fond of material possessions. They have become too selfish. Therefore, humans are clinging more and more to the absolute friendship they derive from their pets. Most pets are not selfish when they are trained as they act on instructions from their owners.

Dogs, man’s acclaimed best friend has the below characteristics.

He remains faithful to his master and owner.

A dog loves his owner and waits eagerly for their arrival whenever they are out. Often times, the dog sits outside and runs happily to their master on arrival, while wagging their tails in excitement. Dogs play with their owners.

Research has proven that forming a relationship with an animal can have important health and psychological benefits. Owning a pet or interacting regularly with them reduce high blood pressure, reduce anxiety and depression rates, and increase social interactions with other pet lovers.


It doesn’t really matter what kind of pet you have, whether it’s a dog or a cat.  The important thing is to develop a relationship with them.  To have a dog as a pet means taking regular walks with them and this is a form of exercise.

PS: I am not a fan of dogs or cats and do not have any. However, I don’t dislike them or those who have them as pets. Some of my good friends are pet lovers and own pets.

    • Hi Irene, Thank you for a great feedback. I’m glad you liked my photos. I have a couple of photos of pets. I may not have a pet but I don’t discourage anyone who cherishes them. Some of them are so sweet to encounter… I have friends who own pets and I see the interactions whenever I visit them. It’s more of a cultural thing for me because I grew up in an environment where we never own pets. Though the status quo has changed now, as more and more people have pets now even in my culture. And of course, one must be committed to their pets for that great experience. Thanks and a wonderful day to you. 🙂
