Have you seen those tiny pocket dogs which just peep out of the pocket in the most adorable way and blink at you? It must be so hard to control ourselves from eating these adorable beings! A woof and a wag of the tail are all that a human needs to forget all their problems. Man’s best friend and forever constant partner, a dog cheers up one’s mood like no other thing in the world.
According to studies, people with dogs are more friendly, happier and in general feel complete. Not just dogs, every pet is adorable and close to their owner’s heart. It may even be an iguana or a tiny little hamster. Pets are one of the best creations by God Almighty.
Who are they?
Pets are basically domesticated animals or creatures as adopted by humans over passing years. Initial domestication may have started from jungles, by the ancient man. With time, they have been tamed and made into domesticated animals who bring joy to a person’s life. Not only are they adopted for entertainment purpose, they act as our guardians. They started as serving the purpose of protectors against wild animals, developing into a completely new generation keep-at-home creature who fills our heart with joy. Possibly the reason why people with increasing age to kids, everyone likes a pet for themselves. It turns the house into a thriving place of joy, covering loss or pain, changing a person’s life drastically.
We love the idea of being around them, and their loss just makes us replace them in most instances, however selfish that maybe. What hurts the most is possibly the thought of losing one’s pet. Growing up with a pet, a kid learns various values and adapts to the idea of growing up with a company. A very dear company whom they would share their laughter and heart with. Losing the pet maybe a shattering experience. Be it a dog, a cat, a hamster or even a fish. They are creatures who we nurture to see them grow into a beautiful lively creature.
Helping hands forever:
Kids with special needs are often found to be advised by their physicians to be brought up with a pet. Imagine a mildly autistic child, facing speech problems and communication issues being introduced to a cute little puppy. Firstly, they can find a friend in them, and most importantly a friend who won’t judge. Hence the kid can talk, communicate, play and do whatever he /she wants to, without being judged. Eventually, they will find themselves changing into a more sociable, jovial and talkative person. It is human nature to implement things in life which they learn, whether good or bad.
Pets are the gems one could want in their life. They influence our entire thought process and eventually our lives. They teach us unending love and affection towards people and things. There are old individuals living up to their names, who own 10 cats and are as happy as ever in their content world with cats which look the same to me. That is probably their escape from the otherwise cruel world out there.
There is a pet for every person, someone might be a dog person, and someone might be a cat lover. One thing remains the same, the unexplainable love for them. Coming home from work after a long tired day, to hear your dog waiting eagerly with the kindest scratch on the door a wagging tail and a woof full of love! It is the best feeling ever. Growing with dogs which later breed to give beautiful puppies, whom you can have for maybe your entire life. That is one heck of a feeling indeed! With commercialisation, there are cities introducing the idea of pet cafes. From dog to cat cafes, there’s something for everybody. They are these small cafes which serve amazing food and permits the idea of being amidst pets of various shapes and sizes, whom we can interact and play with. The best idea ever I would say!
Learning such things from life, I may never have had a pet of my own, but when my best friend lost his 5-month-old puppy, it was the most grieving moment of his life. I had never known the real pain of loss until I saw him weep. That is when I learned the loved one can feel over something which was brought in our life way after we knew right from wrong. The feeling of sharing your love with something that will never expect back and stay by you, that is the best kind of love.
