Today let's talk about your pets. Most of us have pets these days  My question is how does your pet help you when you are having a really bad day.  If you don't have a pet , then choose a person that helps you during your worst hours.
I have two german shepherds and they are both maniacs!!  But somehow, when I am having a bad day, they just seem to know and gently snuggle with me and put their heads in my lap.  When I am down with the flu and in bed, my one boy, Tzar, climbs up on the foot of the bed and stays there the whole time.  He doesn't leave the room.  That makes me feel so loved.  Every once in a while he will crawl to the head of the bed to check out my face and hope for a pet from me.  I love my boys!
Tell me about your pets now.  Isn't it something how they just seem to know???

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

I have two cats. Emily and Saito. They are both extra loving when I don't feel well. I honestly don't know what I would do without them in my life. I have never not had a pet in the house and would hate to have to live that way. There is just something about them that make everything ok. I always tell my husband that nothing in the world can be wrong when you have your face buried in a fuzzy kitty belly.

In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children. The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted. The result is unruly children and childish adults. ~Thomas Szasz

Animals are so remarkable in their ability to sense our feelings and comfort us.

I have had animals all my life. Currently I have two golden retrievers and two cats at home. Unfortunately, I don't get to see them as often as I like, but they are the biggest help when I'm home and having a day day. They are completely unbiased, only loving and understanding. One of my dogs especially is such a love. She is so sensitive, and can read your feelings unbelievably well. When I'm having bad day, she won't let me out of her sight. She'll curl up in my lap and snuggle and give me lots of kisses.

I also used to have a very special bond with a horse. If ever there were two soul mates, it was me and him. When I was upset or in pain, I would go sit in his stall, and he would rest his head in my lap and give me "kisses," or I'd lean against him, hug him, and bury my face in his neck and feel completely at peace in his embrace. I have never had another bond with a human or animal like my bond with him. Next week will mark the one year anniversary since I lost my best friend. I desperately wish I could hold him now, as he understood me and comforted me like no one else.
