To love a pet,
to love a pet is to love one's self.
To know that even if you don't have a lot of people in your life,
your animals will always stand by your side.
There is no such loyalty as a dog,
even a praying mantis.
The love you share with your pets is a special one,
a cherished one.
Each memory holding a special place in your heart,
and although your time with them is short.
They effect you just like a person would.
Some even more so.
So I say my plea,
hug your pets tight.
Never let them go,
you never know when you may lose them.
And their last memory of you should be,
I was loved.
