One of the best parts of life is having best friends to share your memories with. Most people have at least one person who they know they can trust more than anyone else—whether it’s for guidance, reassurance, or simply to have a great adventure.

Having a best friend is one of the most rewarding aspects of life. It’s important to find another person who you can share memories with or look to for sound advice if things aren’t going your way. Having a friend who can lift you up when you’re down is incredibly important!

The two dogs spent all their time together and were clearly the best of friends. Alaina knew there was no way she could break up the special relationship Lucy and Sully had formed, but adopting one dog was overwhelming on its own. What would Alaina do?
