Anyone who has ever shared a home with a pet will fully appreciate the love and connection our animal friends provide for us. Owning a pet often takes a lot of work but growing up with them is truly amazing, especially when the bond between the human and the pet extends through childhood to adolescence and adulthood. Our cherished four-legged buddies will inevitably turn into a lovely lesson in love and hope because of their shorter lifespans. They live brief lives alongside us and grow to be our best friends, helping us overcome feelings of loneliness and providing us with a life filled with love and happiness.
