“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. So true. I do sometimes think my 4 legged feline does verbalise, in their own language, it just we don’t speak their language, understand their language only, with input from their body language, we find we do understand them.


  2. No doubt! Having a pet as your best friend is the most relaxing feeling in the world. They are loyal to you. Listen patiently, though, you talk all rubbish. Every human being needs someone to share his or her feelings with. Most importantly, they will always remain trustworthy….


  3. Yes, some friendship don’t need words.
    And as i’m a new blogger; i am not able to understand how to tag or participate in daily challenges. I’ll be glad if somebody will help me.
    Thank you.
