    We get so much unconditional love from our

    My dogs and cats are my babies.

    I may never have human children, and don't necessarily want them. My dogs and cats will always love me, and never use me, be happy to see me, and not care what I look like, or wear.

    Our Pets Are Part of Our Family

    When I was pregnant with my now 11 year-old daughter, I had three cats, a rottweiler, and a husband. My mother told me, "you will have to get rid of the pets, with a baby coming". I couldn't believe my ears! I told her, "well, since I had the pets first, I think I...

    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.

    Assistance dogs are allowing disabled people to

    live in their own homes and to be independent.Yes they certainly are "man's best friend" in every sense of the word.

    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.

    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.

    Most people think that a pet is just an animal

    My cat is my little "love bug"

    and she is practically my child. I can't imagine not having her as part of my family. I haven't ever really understood people who just see a pet as a pet.
