Pets, What Do We Find In Them That Makes Us Pick At Least One?

May 13, 2007 4:22am CST
My son and I went to the petshop to see if there are some good new fish that we can buy. Much to my surprise, he insisted that we buy a brown smooth haired chow-chow instead. Alright, the puppy looked beautiful and cute. But there are still other puppies around which looked more appealing. He had fallen so much for the puppy that he didn't even care to look at the fishes in the aquaria around anymore. Now, I am wondering what is it that we see in some animals that makes us take it for a pet above all else?

Not quite sure about the pet love chemistry; rather I'm often confuse. I went out to a pet-fair - just a casual visit on a Sunday morning - and ended up with pair of Rabbits.

This often will depend on the void in a persons life or the needs that may exist. Some will want pets for protection, others will want pets to be like a friend and companion that they can talk to and will always be there.

i agree with you, sailor. there is always a void in us which causes us to take in pets.
