Why Children Need A Pet....

Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms...

Animals are such wonderful creatures. For all of us who are lucky and fortunate to have a pet in our lives let us always remember to cherish and take great care of our little buddies. They bring us so much joy and all they ask in return is just love and affection. Just with that you will have a friend and companion for life. Here are some very powerful reasons why kids should have a pet~

To have a staring contest with                    
To keep them from rolling off the couch        

To use as a couch pillow
To make sure Mom gets their good side even when they are sleeping

To listen to them read a funny story

To clean their face off so Mom doesn’t have to
To have someone to yell at the neighbor’s cat with
To use as a blanket when theirs is in the wash

To use as a warm pillow

To hold their binky for them while they sleep
….and most important
 to thank Jesus for each other!

our best friend, Brutus
I received this email/forward from a friend. The pictures say it all... Until one has experienced the friendship, love and devotion of an animal one has not really lived a full and complete life. At least I think so.  From the time I was a little girl we always had a pet at home.  As I grew into my own I continued having pets.  Today our life is so much better with Brutus in it.  I would never wish to live a life without our Brutus.  He makes everything so much fun.
A dog has lots of friends because he wags his tail and not his tongue...
I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul...

until next time...
