It’s no secret that humans love their fur babies, and why shouldn’t they?! Dogs, cats, bunnies, birds, and any other pet you can think of, show us unconditional love and affection. They don’t judge us for any reason and will always be waiting at the door when we come home to show us how much they missed us. Animals offer their friendship and support 24/7 and won’t hesitate to run to our side when we have a breakdown.

We could go on and on about all the reasons why our animals make such a difference in our lives, but the photos below will speak for themselves. Growing old with your fur baby is bittersweet, but when you look back on all the memories, you’ll be so grateful that you got to share your life with such a beautiful animal.

Here are some photos of humans with their fur babies that will hit you right in the feels:

1. We apologize for the cuteness overload in the first photo, and for the fact that you’ll probably want to go out and buy a Malamute now.

Golden Retrievers make some of the best fur babies! They’re so sweet, fun, and loyal; it’s no wonder they’re the most popular family dog.

3. That’s quite a transformation! Fluffy dogs make wonderful fur babies because you always have someone to cuddle with.

Pupper then, doggo now

The relationship between humans and other animals is fascinating and heartwarming. We need them, and they need us. We bring so much joy and fulfillment to their lives, and vice versa. Animals can give our lives purpose, and we have the ability to give an abused or homeless animal a loving environment. So, both human and animal gain benefits from this beautiful relationship.

If you’d like to adopt an animal in the near future, please consider getting one from a shelter instead of a breeder. Shelters have plenty of cute, loving pets to choose from that desperately need a loving home.
