    My Pack

    I've always had a special affinity to dogs.  My first dog was in my family before I was born and was half wolf/husky...he lived until 19 years old.  He was able to sense my feelings...whether lonely...sick or just wanting to be near him...he was always there and...

    Everyone Should Have A Pet

    Let me explain my point, pets are something grand, they, in themselves, are a learning experience. That's actually the main reason why I think every household with children should have, at least, one pet, because they are great experience to have (this does not include if you don...

    I grew up having pets!

    They are more like family to me. I have 3 cats and if I lost any of them I would be so devastated. I love my babies.

    I have had some wonderful dogs

    who have meant as much to me as a human friend. Two of my dogs have passed and now I have one and dearly love him. Their passing is heartbreaking, but in order to have a wonderful pet and that special love they give so freely, you must endure their loss and the grief when the...

    My Pets Saved My Life

    I would have committed suicide if it wasn't for my pets. All my life for as long as I can remember I have been bullied and put down by my dad and my peers at school. The worst was my dad as he would call me fat, lazy, slob, useless, clueless, ungrateful, and anything else you can...

    I hate calling animals "Pets" I think of them

    as companions. I never really had a legit pet. I had a goldfish but it was boring and lame and it died very soon. I always wanted a dog. I love dogs. Ever since I've moved here I felt very lonely because I didnt live around other people my age. So I constantly asked for a dog. I...
