Pets teach us about love, understanding, acceptance—and patience! We also learn about ourselves and our ability to care for another living being. It is our responsibility and opportunity to provide for them.
These dear ones express unconditional love and allow us to give love in return. They may provide us with safety and protection; certainly they give us comfort. Perhaps they bring joy as they entertain us with their personalities.
My pet and I are linked. We are in each other’s lives for a reason. Our bond has grown into a close friendship. I am blessed in countless ways by my pet.
The man gave names to all cattle, and to the birds of the air, and to every animal of the field.—Genesis 2:20
