Recognizing Unconditional Love in Pets


I have been curious about how pets today show us unconditional love. Wondering if it is any different than what I remember from long ago.

I have been out there on the internet browsing around and found a few animal groups that hit home for me with wonderful stories about animal owners and their animal family members. So much is being shared today about unconditional love between pets, their family members, and other pets too.

Our animal family member Rocco is a 13-year-old Australian Shepard who loves to see any new face at the door. I’ve never known an animal that pours out love so freely until Rocco came to live with us.

Not having been around Rocco when he was younger, I was hoping for a bond of unconditional love to surface between us. He is truly attached to my son, and I found out I was in second place for any attention of love, at least that was happening in the first few months that Rocco he was in our home.

Neighbors Love Their Pets Too


How well do I know my neighbors? Living in a country setting, I do have a few close neighbors around me and then some down the road a bit as well.  Many of us country folk have animal pets. Dogs and cats and then the local farms have their cows and dogs too. They may even have a barn cat here and there.

Today I’m sharing how I know that my neighbors love their pets. Weather permitting, they are out walking their dogs and taking them for rides to get ice cream treats (our family dog loves getting ice cream), along with going to the dog parks.  When I’m visiting their homes, a family cat comes out occasionally, wrapping their tail around my leg, purring as loud as they can.

Love goes round and round.

Not too long ago, I was visiting a dear friend of mine, down the road, and she shared with me that her love of her life, her #1 animal family pet, Nina, had severe pain in her shoulders from arthritis.
