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.
