    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...

    Life Without Pets?! Are You Kidding?

    I can't picture life without the love and affection of the furry, four-legged members of my family.  When I am upset, they know, and do their feline best to comfort me.  They love me, they want to be with me, they become upset when I'm gone longer than they expect, they meet me...

    My Best Friend

    My dog is my best friend, as corny as it sounds.  I have human friends I'm close with, but none of them compare to her.  She's always there for me and sleeps next to me every night.  If I'm away from her for even one whole night, I get really sad. ...

    Nature Made Beasts, Plants And Other Things...

    ...and caring for a beast, pot plant or even your own pet-rock, you keep contact to mother nature. The moment you lose that ever thinner thread of primal urge and caring for such things, you lose your own connection to nature, and are bound to become a damn borg...even if you don...

    My Dog, Golden
