As Valentine's Day approaches our thoughts turn to those we love. What better time is there to be mindful of the creatures that offer us their undying devotion on a daily basis? Our pets rely on us to care for them and to supply ample food, shelter, emotional support, and health care. In return they become our devoted companions, trusting us to care for them while giving us amusement beyond measure. A few simple toys can entertain them for hours. A companion animal with a pal (another dog or cat in the household) doubles the fun for everyone.
A responsible pet owner protects his or her pet from dangerous situations, keeping the animal under control at all times. The animal(s) gets plenty of attention and exercise, proper nourishment and veterinary care, and a happy home in which to thrive.
