Owning a pet like a dog or cat has many health benefits for us humans. There are many benefits for all of us that pets can help us with. Not only health benefits but also being a service dog. Learn about the health benefits of owning a pet.

Animals have always been an intricate part of my life. Where once I did not have human friends to play with I was fortunate enough to have my animals.

While I was young we had dogs and now for the last several decades, we have had both cats and dogs. Addressing people who are not animal lovers, I would say it is very difficult to explain what joy an animal can bring to one's life.

For a lonely little girl, they are the friends she needs so urgently. For the elderly or shut-ins, an animal may be their last remaining friend on earth.

Animals provide joy, companionship, and laughter to our lives. When Loren (Caddo) came home from the army, he was greeted by his soon-to-become lifelong companion, Buck, a beautiful black lab. Buck assisted him in hunting and trapping and guarded the family farm while providing hours of sheer pleasure.
