For centuries, the friendship between canines and hoomans has been celebrated. The unconditional love, loyalty, being there for each other along with a certain unsaid peace is best experienced. This friendship day, some hoomans share their fur-ever story with us.

I had a far from perfect college life. Having scored a second class, I had to leave my hometown, and my friends to pursue graduation in another State. It was a difficult time for me. With no friends and staying far from family, I started slipping into depression. The other students were mostly localities and spoke in the vernacular. I was as lonely as lonely could be. Until I met Heero. Heero was the only pup who survived from a litter of six. Naturally, his mother was possessive of him. Heero and his mum loitered around the college canteen often. I don’t know how and when, but they became my family. Especially Heero, he’d follow me around, cuddle with me, tug on my pants till I lifted him in my arms and would even follow me back into class. I remember saving my pocket money to get them vaccinated. Heero was my home in that strange city. I laughed with him. Played like a child. He brought out parts in me I didn’t know existed. When Heero lost his mother, I took him in. He was the only friend I had back then, but he was enough. When it was time for me to go back home, I did. But not without Heero. I started working in a bank with Heero continuing to be my best friend.

My first pup Tim was there through thick and thin for me. Whether it was loving me like a sibling does or annoying me like my best friend, in him, I had the perfect companion. We had been together for 4 years when it was time for me to get married. Honestly, the thought I couldn’t come to terms with was that I would have to leave him and go. While my husband was sweet, I knew in an arranged marriage, this demand, of taking Tim along, would be too much for his family. With a heavy heart, I bid him adieu. Tim stopped eating after I moved to my husband’s. I couldn’t bear the thought and would cry every day. One day, when I opened the door, my husband stood there, holding Tim! It was the best day of my life! We all live happily, and I am glad to have my best friend back!

Simba belonged to my neighbours. But the heart of hearts, he always belonged to me. I was in college when this elderly couple, along with Simba, moved in next door. I have always loved dogs but there was something about Simba! He’d always run into our house at every opportunity and cuddle with me. I was going through a painful break-up and as though sensing it, he’d always shower extra affection on me. I offered the uncle and aunty to take him for walks and they agreed. Simba and I would go for long walks where I would talk my heart to him. He was like my therapist, my best friend!  Uncle and aunty had to move abroad to be with their kids and I couldn’t stop thanking my stars for letting me have Simba! They still video call for him and I am happy to fill them in on all details. They gave me my best friend and I couldn’t be happier.
