Growing Up With Dogs: A Tale of Friendship

We love and cherish ALL our pets. But for those who grew up with pets, the early ones are often extra special. The one who slept in our room and licked our hands when we woke from a scary dream, listened attentively with their head in our laps as we learned to read, or greeted us warmly with a smile and wagging tail at the end of a bad day.

They are our first friends, the keepers of our childhood hopes, secrets and dreams. Often these early dogs and cats don't see us through to adulthood. But they live on in our hearts and we see the world differently, more vividly and clearly because of the bond we shared.
