    Read an article earlier about what dogs

    and cats think in situations. I'll be giving my shih tzu a bath tomorrow so that I can take her to bed with me. The article mentioned that sleeping with your dog can be a stress reliever for the both of you.

    Pets For Vets.

    Only unconditional love can effectively make the process of healing possible.Sadly for those with no family or close friends,unconditional love is hard to come by. The presence and love of an animal is a wonderful gift.And can often mean the difference between life and death.

    I grew up with both cats

    and dogs as a youngster. I have had my lab dog at home for several years now and I consider all pets that I have had as members of my immediate family.

    This is my baby. :-) She's about to leave me,

    through no fault of hers or mine. My mission is to ensure her departure is as painless and filled with love as I can make it.
