The past years for me have been difficult and many times i haven`t felt like just giving in and saying to hell with everything but then i look down and see those beautiful faces of my 5 precious dogs.I know you read about therapy dogs but to actually experience the love that they give you no words can describe.When i cry they comfort me ,when i laugh we all share the happiness ,when i`m ill they protect me.It`s not always plain sailing but we are a family,at the very beginning i honestly believe that without my pets i wouldn`t still be around making me want to get up and carry on fighting to keep well & mobile.I took one of my dogs to see a dear friend several years ago who has had a major stroke and was extremely depressed & had very limited movement.Edmond started showing interest immeditely & even started to try & use his stroke affected hand to stroke Daisy this was like a small miracle for his wife to see his smile radiated the whole room, needless to say Daisy was a regular visitor right up until he died.I feel the same about all my pets cockatiels,horses and dogs making me fight another day.god bless to all man or beast.
