Recently I lost a family pet. It was tragic and made a huge impact on me.
Now that I have had some time to heal, I have become retrospective of the whole process. Isn’t it wonderful that we have the opportunity to share our lives with these wonderful creatures? The unquestioning love, the silly tricks, the cookie obsession, they all weave a rich and complex relationship with our psyche.
Sometimes we question if a pet is worth it with a torn up, expensive shoe or another puddle on the carpet, but these are small prices to pay for the rewards we get back.
Pets are good for the human condition, we have lived side by side with animals from the dawn of time and for good reason, that makes us whole.
I’m all about ROI– Return on Investment…If you have the time, resources and compassion to invest in a pet, I guarantee the return will be great.
Adopt a pet, save life. Who knows? You may even live longer too.
Thanks Thor…miss you.
