Here's the question: do pets provide more than amusement for us? Another question: do pets provide more than simple companionship for us? And, another, who cares?
Well, I absolutely know pets provide more than amusement for me. They provide love and delight.
I absolutely know that pets provide more than companionship for me, also. They provide real friendship. (my pets listen attentively and never disagree with me!)
As for who cares... I care. I think you care, also.
The folks over at PAL - Pets Add Life - care, also. A lot.
Their videos are among the best animal videos out there. I sincerely love them all! But this one, about pets fighting back against pet shaming, is truly hilarious! (don't we get messages across with humor so much better than with dry explanation?)
PAL is spreading the real joy of pet parenting (they say ownership but, hey, that's all right, some folks feel ownership is more appropriate; you and I, we prefer pet parenting, right?) across the web and I'm happy to help them.
Here's their latest video...enjoy. And share. Seriously, if we don't share, we don't accomplish anything. The human-animal bond requires sharing ...of fun videos like this one, and of great articles about how pets are important to the human condition, which you'll see more of on the blog, going forward. Oh, hop over to the PAL Facebook page, too! Good stuff there.
