People's love for pets unleashed in essays

Posted: Friday, March 30, 2001

Given the assignment to express in 25 words or less how your pet enriches your life, what would you say? The Delta Society sponsored a contest and asked people to do just that. Eleven themes emerged from the responses. A pet is ...

a companion, friend, partner. n a giver of unconditional love.

a healer and promoter of health.

an ideal, an inspiration.

a teacher.

a mirror image of its owner.

an entertainer.

a greeter.

a protector.

a connection to strangers.

a worker.

Pets deserve our appreciation, attention and quality time this week and always!
