    This guy. He's everybody's best friend. All day. Every day. Usually, with a tennis ball in his mouth.

    Definitely a dog. I've owned both and cats are wonderful but they are much more independent. Dogs are your best friend, they are loyal and they miss you when you're gone.

    Dogs, Dogs, Dogs!!!  I love all animals . . and have owned both.  But cats are their own best friends while dogs live and breathe to be with their pack leader!  Mine is at my feet right now!  = )

    Hi. My answer begins with a question, what do you mean by a friend? If it is a soul with loving caring and sharing attitude coupled with a sense of responsibility and understanding of virtues and vices, than it should be a man. A man can be a man's best friend. It's a prerequisits of social obligation with which a person is recognised. As the saying goes, "show me your friends and I will tell you what you are" - As far other animals and creatures are concerned, I believe that everything has been brought into existence to serve the human kind. We should love them and treat in as good manner as possible, but they can't be regarded as our friends. If anyone, owing to helping nature, regards an animal as his friend than why can't he be his relative?
    Similarly there are many creatures that are more beneficial to us in one or the other way, sun, moon, water, trees, vehicles...then why is that no relationship is mentioned with these?  The matter is simple relationship of socially obligatory nature must be among humans where as with the rest of creatures we should have loving and caring bonding.

      Since it has been a while in my asking, all that I remember is that the best friend was a human.

    I have cats now but I used to have dogs. Both of these can give lots of companionship and love. I have found that the more love an attention you give, pets will return that.

    It depends.

    For me, it is the dog. But for my sister, it is her cat.

    It depends on the individual. Outside of myself and wife I would say Music/TV or some form of entertainment would be my best friend.
    I've never been one who enjoyed animals enough to want to pickup feces, pay for grooming, and expensive vet bills, or having to find a sitter or make other accommodations for them in order to have a simple weekend getaway or leave for vacation.
    I have no children either. smile
    Lastly I'm not interested in forming a bond with something I know that is going to die within 10-20 years (if not sooner). There are enough (people's  deaths) to morn in my life as it is.

      I agree, the only pets I have ever had are wild birds.

    In my opinion, it is a dog. For many centuries have passed Dog was the symbol of man's best friend.

    i don't have any friends let alone best friends, so my bet is my cat, is the man's best friend. Sorry, i don't own a doggie, maybe next time but i hate to pick up the poo

      I hate that too - AND I DO NOT EVEN OWN A DOG! How is it taking care of a cat? Any messes to clean up? Expensive?
