18 People Who Grew Up Together With Their Pets

Our pets become members of our family from their very first day in our house. They watch us grow, they cheer us up during bad moments, they increase our joy during the good moments, and they never betray us. That is why we’re always thankful for them.

We at Bright Side believe that our pets are our best friends forever, and these 18 photos can prove that even time can’t destroy our friendship.
