I recently saw on television a family (didn’t get the whole story, but I did catch the video) with a pet bison freely lumbering into and out of their home. I found it fascinating as I, too, love all kinds of animals.
We presently have one medium sized dog and two birds, a talking African Grey and a beautiful Plum-headed parakeet. In the past we’ve had three other dogs, a bunny,a Guinea pig, and various parakeets and a canary. All give us joy!
Of course there’s the heartache of losing them, but the love is worth the finality of the loss. Memories last forever and we honor Sasha, Sparky, Kersee, Bailey, Ruby & Oreo, often with plants in the garden.
Animals have a way of sensing your mood and adapting to it. They deserve love and respect in return.
“The purity of a person’s heart can be quickly measured by how they regard animals.”
