“Animals are more complete than people. They are wonderful teachers, therapists and role models for us all.”
Many people feel that their pets are part of their families. Dogs, cats, birds and even reptiles are included in holiday photos. Some pet owners have astonishingly bequeathed large sums of money to their pet companions in their Will. So why the love and adoration for these friendly companions?
Dogs are commonly referred to as “man’s best friend,” and for good reason. No matter how difficult our day is, no matter what we look like or how we feel, our faithful comrades love us unconditionally. When we are at our worst – feeling sad, sick, unsightly, ill, with bed-head, baggy sweats and no make-up, our cherished pals seem to love us even more. And the feeling is mutual.
