      Yes! My dog is Mr. Coco,who is four years old this week. I cannot imagine my life without him. Everyone needs a little pet therapy every day. My dog is one of my greatest joys.

    well since having to learn to live by myself again, it's been nice having my cat around (always was of course); he greets me at the gate to my property when he hears my bike coming  LOL!  the neighbors tell me, he cries for me sometimes when I'm not around or late getting home; he perches on the rock wall surrounding my place waiting for me to return.

    i have many mental disorders including social phobias, anxiety and severe depression. if not for my cat i would not have a reason to get out of bed. she is my comfort when i'm anxious and my friend when i'm lonely. i love her so much that i want nothing more than to create a better life for her. this gives me the energy to get out of bed everyday, care for her and try to sell my work to afford new and better things for her. if not for her i'm sure i would have left this world a long time ago. she has provided me with a purpose and reason to walk the earth everyday.

    However sad I am feeling our dog has the capacity to make me smile every day because he is so utterly gorgeous and funny. Before we got him we had rarely smile in eight years.

    I've been battling illness for most of my life, though things truly got bad about four years ago.  My dog has been beside me with unconditional love throughout. 
    A year and a half ago, I found myself rather accidentally adding a horse to the family, and this was the opposite of an easy first time horse owner type horse, (not to mention a full 4 inches taller than he was supposed to be).   
    Ours has been a bumpy journey, and it has only just begun.  It's caused pain as well, but the pleasure far overwhelms that.  In retrospect, I truly have few regrets, and my ill health was in some ways a great asset.
    Now, I feel I'm finally on the right track with my health, and though the road is a long and difficult one, I'm right where I want to be with my horse.  He is the reason I get up in the morning.  He's everything I ever wanted and so much more.  Every time I see him I make sure to tell him that he's the love of my life - because he is.
    And the days I'm flat on my back, unable to get up, my dog is there, and I can dream of the days when I'll be able to take trail rides with my two boys.
    I couldn't do it without them

    I'm not what you'd call an animal 'lover' but I have two dogs and two cats.  All outside critters.  I enjoy them for one simple reason...they're the only 'creatures' in my life that never question a thing I do.

    My two Great Danes are a HUGE part of my life. They entertain me, make me laugh, keep me warm at night, console me when I'm sad, and protect me, my family, and our home.

    My Goldfish blows kisses at every girl who enters into the room wearing lipstick. smile
    I don't know who trained him or why he reacts to lipstick this way... hmm
    but it gets to be embarrassing at those times that he flashes his tail at them! yikes

        He's Smart.... He doesn't have to...

        They are so impressed at the attention, that they fondly 'pat' him yikes

    They are entertaining, loving, loyal...I love them as much (or more) than my human friends. Not ashamed to admit it. :]

    My cats provide me with endless entertainment and something small to cuddle that is not a baby.  They also keep the mice away.
