Re: Animals or people ?
To me, they both have there 'for's and againsts,' as I expect I do too.
I have been round animals my entire life, so a huge part of life would be missing without them.
I value their companionship, they make me laugh, they love me warts and all, they defend me, they never criticise, and have made me many friends.
Having said all that, they are not so good with advice and conversation, nor mending things.
Also, I can't clear off out for a day at the seaside, as I have no one to look after them.
Still would never want to be without them though.
