This picture represents “a man’s/woman’s best friend.” What does that mean? It means an affectionate or approving way of referring to the dog. A man and/or woman could have a best friend that isn’t human. An animal (a dog for example) is the best type of best friend you could have. They may not be able to tell you in words that they love you, but they show by their actions. Wagging their tail, jumping up when they see you at the front door, hugging you, licking your face/hands or can teach them how to say “i love you.” But there is nothing more beautiful than an animal showing affection towards a human being.
