Our friends who share our life go with us on the path of our respective lives. In exchange for their presence, we pamper them. We share joys and sorrows together. For many, they provide presence and comfort in times of loneliness.
It may seem a bite thoughtless to attach yourself to a four-legged friend when there is so much to do around the world with humans. But taking care of them, protecting and loving them allows us to better understand otherness and sharpens our sense of responsibility, especially for our children.
A way to gain some experience of opening up to others and respecting them.
