“Pets are humanizing. They remind us we have an obligation and responsibility to preserve and nurture and care for all life.” — James Cromwell
Raise your hand if you have a pet.
Pets are one of life’s greatest joys and sorrow. They bring unconditional love to our lives and we are better people for it. Sorrow and grief comes when they pass away.
I’ve had a few pets in my life but the one pet that sticks with me is Chopper. Chopper technically was my aunt and uncle’s Golden Retriever but I still consider him my favorite fur baby. He and I had an unbreakable bond. He’d look at me with those chocolate brown eyes and I’d melt. He’d protect me from harm and loved to snuggle with me while I watched television.
Pets have a way of making even the worst day of your life appear not so bad. Their undying love for you, their owners, is the purest example of love.
I like James Cromwell’s quote because as humans, we’re the caretakers on Earth. It’s our responsibility to care for and protect all life, no matter how small. Having pets grows our compassion for animals and all life.
Today, give a little extra attention and love to your pets. It’s takes a lot of work to be a pet and being adorable can be exhausting. Show love to your pet and it will be eternally grateful.
