Sometimes a pet is your best friend.  Ever had a day when whatever you did just didn’t turn out right?  You couldn’t please anyone even if you were Mother Teresa.  Take solace with your pet.  Whether it’s a dog, a cat, a box turtle or a bird, pets usually give unconditional love.  My dog is always happy to see me when I come home.  She runs to the door to greet me and wags her tail.  She sits next to me on the couch when I watch television and sleeps at my feet at night.  Sometimes caring for others can take a toll on us.  How many caregivers have pets that provide just the right amount of love back to make a bad day better?
