Experience with animals and own pets

I started loving pets at a very early age and I was fortunately blessed with a male Rottweiler puppy when I started grade 4. I took care of the dog and we had a very strong bond, as he was one of Earth's creatures who had never betrayed me. We had so many memories together and his love for me was beyond that of humans. Unfortunately, he fell ill and died when I was in grade 11.

I have also been involved in taking care of other people's pets, such as dogs and cats. The profound realization I have made about pets is that their love and trust resembles much more than that of humans. One can only receive love from a pet when they take good care of it. Furthermore, a pet such as a dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more that it loves itself.

The only communication between humans and pets is love which is attained through good care and I believe I can connect with any pet, as long as I have the opportunity to take care of it.
