    I adore animals and I see reflected in their

    eyes the majesty of God's creation. Their intelligence is breath taking. We used to have a dog that when I came home rather stressed and angry from work, she would read my expression, wag her tail but not bark, not demand being stroked, she would just stare at me from a...

    Love Animals

    Just do always have. I like the ones that you can actually pick up and take with you places. I have had lots of dogs and cats growing up. Kittens are so cute and so are puppies. I love animals but these 2 kinds are my fave. It's fun to watch them grow up and develop their own...

    and even dogs in old age suffer the same as humans. Yet the story of this dog made me tear. I imagine myself as an old man doing the same last jog on the beach. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3422920/Tear-*******-moment-elderly-labrador-took-one-final-run-beach-just...

    Drop It!

    When we first got our pup Sundance we had a 2 year old male cat. That cat would always scratch and hiss at Sundance and would sometimes even go out of its way to run over and scratch him. Sundance grew up to be about 90 pounds of dog but he still was afraid of that cat. Until...

    More than people... Seriously.

    Pet Cohabitation

    I believe that my relationships with my animals have prepared me for the major human losses that I have faced, and will face, during the course of my life. YOU WILL OUT LIVE your pets, unless maybe you get a turtle or bird that lives to 100. I have lived with pets since I can...

    With cats, or dogs, as with children, you take what you get. No two are alike, and you can't tell by looking what their personalities will be. But you can find something to love in each of them. There is an author I think you might enjoy. His name is William J Thomas. He writes...

    I absolutely believe animals are wiser

    than humans; an animal loves us unconditionally. I would love to be able to thoroughly trust people where I, too, could do the same.
