If you’ve ever found yourself saying, “My dog is my best friend,” welcome to the club! Our dogs are our besties, our fur babies, our companions, and our family members. In fact, in a recent study from Rover. com, a typical dog owner not only describes their dog as a “best friend” but also aspires to be Fido’s best friend too. There’s just nothing like the unconditional love of a dog.

So whether your bestie is a Westie, your butt’s parked by your mutt, or you’d do anything for your Goldendoodle, most likely you and your canine companion are best buds and share a bond of unconditional love for each other.

But just how “bestie” are you? Is your dog your furry best friend? Based on the latest studies from and reading the latest surveys on the benefits of pets for millennials and baby boomers, we created a list of 10 signs that your dog is your best friend. Check it out and see how many get a “that’s me!” or “I do that too!” response from you. Then take the fun quiz below to check your “best buds” level.

  1. As you already know, Chloe Doodle doggie, there is Bessie the Basset Hound in my household. But since I am a pussycat, Mom took your quiz. She says there has always been a doggie in her life, ever since she was a baby. I know she luvs Bessie and luved the doggie’s that came before Bessie, but I know deep down Mom is really a cat purrson. Just sayin’. Dad, on the otherpaw, well I’m still working on him. Tee hee hee. Winks. Purr purr purr.

    1. P’awww, thanks for taking my quiz! It sounds like your mom has lots of room in her heart for furry loves of all kinds! Doodle kisses!
