They don’t call them man’s best friend for no reason! You know who I’m talking about, the furry, affectionate and always loving pets; dogs.
I always loved all my family pets, but I never understood the crazy connection (people talking about their pets like children) until we got bailey. She was a measly ten pounds when we got her and she grew tall so fast it seemed like her body would never stretch out to her height, but it did.
At the time we got Bailey it was one of the first times my Mom and Dad hadn’t had a dog and there were only two dogs on my husband’s side. The day after we got bailey my mom and dad came to visit and within a half hour I was making the same trip with my family to Hawkesbury, there we got my families dog Zoey a crazy long haired version of bailey, after that puppies sort of fell into place every six to nine months. Now we have a whole family of crazy loving dogs, mostly crazy lol, you should see our get-togethers!

So it pains me when I go to pet stores and see puppies locked in small cages, commercials for abused animals or every time I drive past the OSPCA. I can’t imagine ever hurting an animal or getting one and not giving it the love and attention it needs.
So do me a favour, if you have a pet get it fixed the world does not need more puppies and kittens right now, there’s tons that need love. If you have room in your heart and home, adopt a pet they can give so much love and happiness to a family. If you can’t adopt a pet right now, but want to give some love try volunteering at an animal shelter or OSPCA or even donating, I know that they are always in need of all the above.
Even though they may be loud, animals cannot speak for themselves, so we have to speak for them. Share the love with a pet and I guarantee you will get more back then you ever imagined.
