Awakening the Soul

I read a really great quote the other day by Anatole France:

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."

This got me to thinking about all the things you have to gain by being a dog owner...

compassion,



responsibility,

friendship,

love,

laughter,

an excercise partner,

a travel companion,

and a snuggle buddy.


Sure, dogs take alot of time, money, and energy - but just look how much you gain!

What have you gained from having a dog (or a cat!)?

  1. As I clicked to comment, I realized I probably can't put into words what it means to me and what it has done for me to have Ray in my life. My life as a kitty person was complete and now with Ray I am MORE complete.

  3. I was a cat person until my Lainey girl, and I just can't even put into words how she has changed my life! And I can totally relate with the "time, money & energy"!
