What is it about everyone's pets,
Whether dog named Nipper or cat, Josette,
That touches our hearts and uplifts our soul,
Every time we take them out for a stroll?

They are only animals some might say,
That may be true, but it’s still a cliché,
To lump pets in the league with hyenas,
Or some big cat by the name of Sheena.

Our pets become an extension of us,
Why they even pout and sometimes they cuss,
Loving and loyal dogs and even cats,
They have our hearts although they act like brats.

What is it about pets I ask once more,
That even if they're naughty we adore,
When I hear "Old Shep" I cannot deny,
This seventy-eight-year-old man still cries.

Many thanks, NightOwl, mine aren't "just animals" either. They are a part of me. Welcome to PiP. Sorta slow around here, but I hope you will enjoy your stay.

We can't help but love them because they love us. There is nothing like the sound of a contented sigh or a purr coming from your lap.~L

You got that right, Lori, big time. They can show their love in so many, many ways. It touches me to the nth.

I've two big boys (dogs) that are lovable pals, but they don't always take to strangers. Frankly, they scare the hell out of some people because of their appearance, their throaty growl and their baritone bark. But they're very well trained and obedient.

Pass the Glade if you're going to do that here...

Yep, I'd say that would back up some of those strangers for sure!
