I am an avid lover of dogs and had been always a proud owner till last two years(he died two years back). Now since we go out of city after every 2-3 months, we didn't want that our pet should be neglected, hence we dropped the idea of owning any pet. Most of you must be ardent lovers of pets, especially dogs. What are the reasons for loving your pet. Ofcourse, main reason being that he loves you above anything else, you forget all your tension when you come back home from your work. Here are the few other reasons which I received in an email: The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue. There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself The average dog is a nicer person than the average person. Dogs love their friends & bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love & always have to mix love & hate Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.

Your post is lovely! The reason why I love pets is because they help me get by with life much easier. There are days when I'm just so sad or angry, and then I see my dogs funny face and all the sadness and anger goes away. My dog is due to give birth by the end of this month and I am really excited! They truly bring joy to each home!

I love my pet because they love us without any greedy mentality.I have cats ,dogs and ducks as my pet . They love me very much expecting only love as return.They have no enemity towards me. Their cute face makes us forget our sorrows .and the time we spend with them is really a way of fun.
