Friends On Paws
Why Animal Lovers Are Never Lonely
Early childhood is an impressionable period of life in which children are often natural born pet lovers. Parents have a great influence in the building of their children’s character by encouraging them to be animal lovers and allowing them to have a dog or cat as a pet. Parents should encourage their kids to become animal lovers because this will mean never to be alone, to always have a friend, to be comforted when sad, to be happy and needed, to learn responsibility and, last but not least, to love. That’s what an animal friend teaches a child, the most valuable lesson of all.
Best Friends on Paws Make Animal Lovers Never Feel Lonely
Seeing dog lovers in parks, on television, in stores, and on the streets, you can clearly see the benefit of having a pet. Having a dog or cat around the house will surely bring animal lovers a lot of smiles. Cuddling, big round eyes sending messages of love, cute fluffy ears or tail moving in signs of joy should make any heart melt. Animal lovers are the ones that feel for these helpless beings. A pet is not an object one buys to keep around the house, but a living thing that communicates and interacts with the people around it. Animal lovers know that and they appreciate every smile a pet brings on their faces.
Animal lovers know that pets depend on them and need them more than a human ever will. The animals around the house have to be fed and watered and cleaned constantly, just like a child. They need their masters just like a child needs his mother to survive. Having a pet means having a lot of responsibility and dog lovers sacrifice their time, money and effort to keep their beloved pooches happy and healthy.
Animal lovers assume the responsibility towards their pets with pleasure and never regret their efforts because they do it out of love. In exchange, they receive even more. True animal lovers are never lonely, as they are always loved by their pets, they never get disappointed and often receive the comfort that a human could not give them. Not to mention animal lovers won’t ever feel nagged by their pets, neglected or left aside. To adopt animals means having true friends for life.
Another reason to why animal lovers are never lonely is the fact that their sacrifices talk a lot about the kind of persons they are: communicative, generous, not selfish, always around to help their friends in need, loving and attentive. There are many people who would want these qualities in their friends or their lovers, so animal lovers are very appreciated and loved by everyone.
Dog owners come across each other and so they will naturally start to chat along, there is so much to talk about. Whether it’s the new vet in town or homemade recipes to get rid of pests that are safe for pets, about the food, about your buddy’s health condition… There is always something to gabble about because the passion for the same pets results in a lot of things in common to talk about. A shared passion (of any kind) will always bring people together.
Imagine a dog lover, going out to walk the dog every day, who is he most likely going to have as a friend? Will it be the lady neighbour that can’t stand dogs? Or will it be the girl that walks her own dog in the park every morning just like him? All animal lovers, because they love life and its smallest proofs (animals), will never be alone and they will always share their pleasure with those that appreciate the same thing as them. And last but not least to be mentioned: another important aspect is the health benefits of owning a pet.
And it’s not just the mental health benefits of experiencing so much unconditional love, loyalty and fidelity. Don’t forget, you GOT to walk a dog at least twice a day and the joy and love you will get back from your pooch will definitely not do any harm to your overall well-being and happiness.
So if you are looking for company, don’t forget to consider a pet. They will bring you the soul medicine everyone needs ….. unconditional love!

High paws and thanks a lot for reading!
I’m a cat person. My cat is not very people-orientated, but my 3 year old adores her regardless!
I can’t imagine life without our pets! They are such a joy! I know they keep us healthy and happy!
I love my kitties very much, and even though I’m single and live alone, and I never feel lonely with them around to keep an eye on me. 🙂
Same with my doggy, well I am not single but spend a lot of time at home on my own. My little clown keeps me busy and entertained 🙂
