Animals have an innate sense when it comes to therapy for people. Dogs can sense an epileptic seizure before it even happens, and you can't.
They love unconditionally, and provide warmth and protection. For you it depends on your mood.
They're pretty much the best non-humans ever. In fact, our pets should be considered super humans. They're so much better than us. They don't complain. They're quiet when they eat. They cuddle with you when you're feeling sad. They make you laugh when they're just being themselves.
Seriously. WTF, humans. We could learn a thing or two from our pets.
Good thing there's a whole day dedicated to them this weekend. (By the way, don't forget this Sunday is Mother's Day.)
