“The language of friendship is not words but meanings.” — Henry David Thoreau

I’m sure that at some point in every pet-lover’s life, they wish their animal friend could verbalize their thoughts. Our furry companions seem so in tune with our moods and the world around them, but the barriers of biology and language prevent them from having even a simple chat with us.

The beautiful thing about friendship is that it transcends language. A beloved pet doesn’t need to articulate their thoughts with words for us to understand their affection. With a true friend — be they human, canine, or something else entirely — you can sit comfortably in silence and simply share space.

  1. It is often the moments of silence that strengthen the friendship between two people. When friendship is bound by companionship… intertwined with love, secured by mutual understanding…

  2. A friend is someone who can understand what we feel during every single time. As you said, a friend can be anyone, with whom we feel comfortable to share our space. Dog, as a pet is loyal but the same dog as a friend is trustable. Human beings (as our friends) can often play with our emotions but pets are never meant to be like that! Ofcourse, friendship does transcend language.
