    Do you have any animal? What is the feeling of have one? Did your life changed by having one?

    I never had a pet as a child or an adult until my sixties when I retired and was at home all the time. It was then that I brought a puppy into my home and my life. Doing so made me realize what I'd been missing up until then. Dogs give so much love, expecting nothing in return but food, shelter and some attention. It is wonderful sharing my life and home with a dog. She has her own personality, temperament and quirks--just as I do. She's a non-judgmental companion. The relationship between human and dog is built on love and trust.

    I'm now in my seventies, aging along with my dog. I love her dearly. Since she's had several health problems and went blind two years ago, taking care of her is much like caring for a human toddler, but I don't mind.  She's given me a lot of happiness and continues to do so every day. Caring for a pet is a big responsibility that requires a commitment for the life of that pet. The only downside is the relatively short lifespans of most domestic pets, especially dogs. Even so, I am very glad she's part of my life. Adopting her was one of the best decisions I ever made.

      It's amazing seeing the relationship between a dog and a human. He is really our best friend. Thanks for your answer.

    I have two dogs, a hedgehog, two frogs, and some fish! I love having pets. My home would feel empty without them. I grew up with dogs and knew that I'd never live without at least one in my house. They're like my children, and they're my daughter's best friends.

    My hedgehog is pretty low-key and nocturnal, so not the most interactive pet, but I still consider him a part of the family. I probably won't get another nocturnal pet as I'm someone who loves playing/cuddling/spending time with their pets.

    Overall I think my pets bring me lots of joy and love. Sometimes they try my patience (especially since I have a toddler doing that already), but they are totally worth it.

    I have had animals almost my entire life.  My first was a collie named Princess and then her son, named King.  Then I had a meagerie of dogs, and cats, kittens and puppies.  6 years ago I had a total of 16 cats/kittens.  We have one dog, named Duke who has been through the ringer this year with his bout of Vertigo.  I have had to put several cats down.  Right now I have 5 cats, one totally outdoor (Mikey was born there and likes it there), 2 indoor/outdoor (because one girl, Shadow is still part feral and the other , Sunshine just wants to get away from the male totally indoor cat, Charlie) and another girl, Little Bits, that is totally indoor (she has had sinus problems almost since the day that she was born).  If I let her out she reverts to her wild state and does not come to me at all.  They are characters and never a dull moment around here.  If I did not have animals I think I would go bonkers.

      Wonderfull. My first pet was a bird. In today's time I remember him as the best pet I've ever had. Because I didn't have any dog yet.

      I have had other animals as pets too, not just the dog and cat variety.  I had rabbits, fish, mice, hampsters, ducks, goats, They didnt come until my children were in elementary school.

    I cannot imagine not having pets. After all, pets have the effect of quite seamlessly and significantly increasing the "flow of love" for bipeds. I and my Better-Half have 2 gods (backwards) and 3 pet-loving starb (backwards).
    The Mollinator (Molly) a Belgian Malinois acts as my cheap personal trainer as she paces me in my walk-runs rather like an exercise-nazi. Our other dog a German Shep named Fiona Has dual personalities. To intruders, she becomes "Fiend-ona."
    The backyard is their territory. Our landscaper once forgot to ring our doorbell and inform us that he was heading into our "outback." Fiona transformed into Fiendona and chased him to his truck roadside (I thank God the Fiend didn't bite him). Last year the twosome contained a robber until the police arrived. He had made the mistake of jumping into our outback after robbing an AT&T store and abandoning a stolen car nearby. He was so happy to see the police.
