We're so grateful for our friends, both human and fluffy.

My best friend is Christy. She has shoulder-length hair, beautiful big eyes and wears glasses. She’s tall, slim and looks very energetic.

So, one day, I was feeling really down because I hadn’t done very well in an exam. When she found out, she comforted me and went with me to the library so we could study together. I got a good result in the next exam, and I was really happy. I thanked her for helping me.

Although she is now studying abroad, I know we will always be best friends.

Friends are a shoulder to lean on

My best friend is Johnny. He always plays with me and I love him very much. I first met Johnny in a dog shelter. He was scared of people and was very thin. I felt very sorry for him so we adopted him. At first, Johnny was scared of me and did not trust people. Luckily, with time, he started to accept us.

I feed him every day. He seldom bites or barks. He loves exercise and has plenty of energy. The best thing is that he enjoys playing with other dogs. I take him to the park every day. Like many other dogs, Johnny also enjoys playing ball games. It is a good way to tone up his muscles. He is very strong now.

Johnny is a good companion. He supports me when I am stressed about my homework. He understands me and he loves to lick my face. He also hugs me when I come home. Johnny is my best friend and is the loveliest “guy” in the world!

My best friend is my kitten, Olaf. He is so cute; I especially like his big, round eyes which look like jewels. He is loving and gentle and always sits on my lap and meows softly when I am sad. He comforts me a lot!

Olaf is very playful. When I finish my work and leave the table, he immediately jumps up towards me, because he wants to play. When we play, he always jumps and runs around excitedly.

I enjoy playing with him very much, and I am glad to have Olaf as my BFF.

Our inspiring friends

I met my best friend Alexis this year. We are in the same class, which is how we got to know each other.

I think she’s a wonderful person because she helps me with my homework, especially the subjects I am not very good at. Her voice is like that of an angel, and she has the personality to match. We share the same hobbies and enjoy reading fiction.

She’s also really good at visual arts and always helps her classmates.
