This year we had to put our dog down. It hurt. He had been a loyal member of the family and went with me every morning for a walk. The experience reminded me of how important pets are in our lives. They give us comfort when we are feeling low. They are our companions when we need a friend. They are loyal and sincere and seek only our affection and attention.
This big mancun is named Sparky and he is the family cat. If you didn’t know it you would think he was a dog. He follows us everywhere and waits for us to come home. He loves to lay about, lets anyone pet him, and sleeps with my wife and I when we let him. He is indeed a loyal pet. I give thanks for the animals in my life and the way that they ask so little and give so much.
