My Love for Animals
As I neared the gate, bag in hand, she, Sunny Rose bounded towards me wagging her tail wildly. She turned her great big blob of her head towards me and began jumping and playing around me as she welcomed me home. I sat down and said, Hi there big fella, had a good day. ” She immediately lifted her paw and slapped it down hard on my out stretched hand. Her hand shake was warm and inviting. She opened her mouth and an alarming quantity of slippery pink tongue rolled out and licked me
I’ve always loved animals ever since I was a little girl. I remember caring for baby birds that fell out of a nest in my backyard. I also once cared for a cat that was injured by an irresponsible driver. I wept bitterly when my pet gold fish died and we had to give it a watery grave down the toilet. I think it is very easy to love dogs. They are wonderful companions; loyal and trustworthy. They will play safely with kids or keep a house – bound person company all day long and they make wonderful guide dogs.
It is true that training a dog takes considerable time and effort but its time well spent because they pay you back generously with affection, intelligence and good humour. Being a dog owner builds character and provides a lot of pleasure. Pets are a name for animals that live with you and share your life. They are interesting because you can play with them and take to them as if they are humans. It is a known fact that pets help you to lead longer and happier lives because of the companionship, exercise and responsibility they provide. They offer companionship to keep stress and depression away.
Many Psychiatrists have found that patients with anger management problems can be calmer with a pet around the house. It Calms the nerves and eliminates aggravation. Can you hear the cries of those who do not communicate in the human language? How about the fearful mewing of a motherless kitten? Does your heart skip a beat when you hear the whimpering of a lost puppy? Are you filled with sadness when you see an animal that has been hit by a car? Do you take in strays and feed them because they are all skin and bone? If so you love animals just like me.
