Experience with animals and own pets

A favourite quote of mine - “He is your friend, your partner, your defender, and your dog. You are his life, his love, and his leader. He will be yours, faithful, and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.” –Unknown.

Ever since I was young, I had a passion for animals - especially dogs . From climbing up trees to save a cat’s life, to nursing a bird’s wings back to health - anyone that knows me knows I am all about animals.

I realized that there are a lot of things that dogs do for us as humans and that is the reason why dogs are usually referred to as man's best friend. A dog is a great pet to have, because it is good for your health as you can never go wrong with them tagging along during your morning/afternoon jogs.

They can also make good protectors, not to mention how excited they get while waiting for you to come back from a long day.

Basically, from my experience, they offer love and companionship. They also enjoy comfortable silences, play time and could be the best cure to loneliness.
