One of the purest forms of friendship is between a child and a dog. There is no rivaling the level of innocence and wholesomeness of their interactions. It’s something that parents love to see.
A young boy named Joey owns a Bernese mountain dog that’s twice his size. They interact like siblings and do almost everything together. In fact, his love for his dog is so great that he wrote a letter expressing everything he loves about her. Most of the things mentioned below are included in this letter.
When Joey found out that he was getting a dog, he was determined to become that dog’s best friend. The dog named Tilly provided nothing but fun for him. One of his favorite activities with the dog is chasing her after she steals an item. Joey would run after Tilly with a big smile on his face.
Joey loves cuddling with Tilly because she feels like a large pillow. He always laughs out loud when sitting beside her. Even if Joey is the one tickling the dog, he can’t help but feel giddy as well.
During winter, the two best friends would often run outdoors and play in the snow. On such occasions, Joey loves making snowballs and throwing them at Tilly. She enjoys this as well and loves catching anything the boy throws at her.
Tilly is known as the sock thief inside the house. It became a running joke, and the family has a portrait of her that looks like a mugshot. Joey even considered dressing her up like a sock monster for Halloween. This is proof that the family knows her so well and treats her as another member of their family, not just a pet.
It’s safe to say that almost any activity Joey does with Tilly is exciting for him, no matter how mundane it seems to others. For a kid that has a loyal dog, it’s normal to feel such strong unconditional love. He and Tilly are lucky to have each other.
