I realize this is two days in a row for the Avatar-verse, but it boasts some truly fine animal companions. Avatar Aang had his sky bison. Aang’s successor, Korra, has a polar bear dog. That’s right, a freakin’ polar bear dog.
Raised by Korra from puppyhood, she’s more than companion: Naga is a dear friend.
She’s a sweet girl, and free with her affection.
She gives good greeting.
Naga makes friends easily.
She’s a patient playmate.
She worries over her friend…
… and is quick to defend her.
She appreciates a good belly rub.
Whether Korra’s been away six hours or six months, Naga will always give her an enthusiastic welcome home.
It’s what best friends do.
