Happy Tuesday, Humans!

How wonderful is it that animals tolerate us, and sometimes even deign to love us?

“An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.” ~Martin Buber

            “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”     ~Anatole France

“Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet.” ~Colette

            “A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”     ~John Billings

               “I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is     infinitely superior.” ~Hippolyte Taine

Dogs leave paw prints on our lives and our souls, which are as unique as fingerprints in every way.” ~Ashly Lorenzana

              “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way            its animals are treated.” ~Mahatma Gandhi

    I just referenced this quote the other day for a poem on Medium.

    “A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”   ~John Billings

    I don’t see how animals put up with us. Lol.

    It seems to me that dogs are the best therapists possible for people of all ages – no credentials necessary. 😉

    Seamus (my parrot) is proof that it’s possible to love the most annoying animal on the planet to an absurd extent.

    Seamus: *lands on head and messes up hair*
    Me: Hi, Seamus.
    Seamus: I love you, buddy.

    If only we could live in this world with them and not cause them to disappear. So many endangered animals because of humans. I love the pics and the quotes. Warm and fuzzy feelings.
