That was absolutely beautiful. I have been pretty sick lately. My pets have been extra cuddly and close to me. I know it is because they sense something is wrong. I had been in bed for almost 2 weeks and I always had either one of my cats or one of my chihuahua's curled up against me sleeping with me. It seemed that they had gotten together and were taking turns watching over me. It is so true, that to never love an animal, you have missed out on something very, very special in life.
