Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's
soul remains unawakened.
The relationship between animals and people is undeniable. Domesticated pets are incredibly adapted to human needs. Anyone who lives with a dog or a cat knows that in the long run pets work out unusual ways to communicate their needs to their owners. My Cocker Spaniel always sneezes two times in a row when my husband comes home just to let him know that I am cooking and it “smells”. He also tends to communicate with his eyes. It's very funny and bizarre at the same way. If he wants something all he needs to do is “point” with his eyes. He always makes sure he establishes eye contact first.
It's hard to believe there are people who have never open their homes to a deserving pet. I wish people could understand that pets are a gift to mankind. Pets are not in our possession to be beaten, starved, or murdered. These pets are here for us to remind us to be wild, gentle, playful, loyal, to trust, have fun, live simply, value our family, and love unconditionally. Sounds like the perfect happiness recipe to me. Who knew pets can be so inspirational :D

I believe in animal rights, and high among them is the right to the gentle stroke of a human hand. Robert Brault
