Why People Should Have Pets


More by this author
It has been said, "that the only creature to love someone more than it loves itself, is a dog". The love does not stop there. Cats, rabbits, hamsters, and so many more other animals, give unconditional love towards you. Pets are great to have and will improve your life.

Pets are fun to cuddle with, nice to have around, yes. Imagine, you had a really hard day at school or work. You come home just wanting to relax. Walking in your door, seeing a happy face and wagging tail, bounding around the corner running towards you. Might make your day better. Then laying in front of the TV, with them by your side keeping you warmer. Having a cat or dog to come home to at night can be like a present every day.

I know from experience that dogs or cats can change your perspective on most anything. I used to have a dog named Norman, he was a golden retriever. If you met him you would instantly know he loved you and wanted to be your best friend. Norman was one in a million. He showed me that life is about being happy, that everyone has good in them, and that they should be loved. Not having him here has showed me that pets really do make your life better, happier. Who doesn't want a happier life with more love?

I can try and tell you how great pets are, but the only person who can show you and prove to you what a joy they are, is yourself. I encouraged you to go over to a friend’s house who has a dog, or a kennel. Or somewhere where you can throw a ball with them, or pet them. That you can see how amazing they are. You can experience the love they give off towards anyone who will give them a moment of your time.

Dogs are amazing creatures, I believe that they where put on our earth to not only help us, but to show us how to be happy. Truly happy. Pets are blessings to anyone and everyone. I hope that you have had the chance to own one, or play with one. They are something that people should experience.
