Do I Make You Proud?
I’ve been an animal lover all my life. I moved to a ranch when I was 5 years old, and lived there till I was 17 and went away to college. During that time, we had horses, a couple calves, and mostly Suffolk sheep that we raised. I was involved in 4-H during my high school years, and always raised a lamb as my project, to be sold at auction at the County Fair. Sometimes I cried, sometimes I did not, depending on the bond I had made with my animal.
But we all know the bond we have with an animal we call a pet. I have to relate those bonds to dogs and cats, but I suspect, and know, they can go to hamsters to ferrets and beyond.
But it truly is the unconditional love, understanding and “support” that these creatures offer to us that make them truly special. I lost my beloved Greyhound Nero 3 years and 8 months ago. To this day I can still drop a bucket of tears if I really want to. I will NEVER be able to replace him, but to have another companion like him is something I truly desire. And when the time is right…..
Today on Facebook, someone posted a video that once again cemented the belief we all have in animals (pets) and the unconditional love they offer us. And so, I share that video will make you think!
