The bond that humans share with their animals is an unbelievably powerful thing. People who've never had the opportunity to be involved in the life of an animal find it hard to understand that connection that those of us who have, feel toward our pets.

You don't have to search very hard to find stories that surface about how wonderful the benefits of having animals can be on those that are ill or mentally exhausted.
