Pets or People: Who loves you more?
Though friendship and relationships are nice, they are nothing compared to the unconditional love given by a pet.
Dogs, the close relatives of wolves, with their springy legs, powerful jaws, and wagging tails, have always been close companions to man. The use of these canine powerhouses is endless, From hunting partners to seeing eye dogs, these mammals are the Swiss Army knives of the Animal Kingdom.
The people of the CB community was eager to share stories of their loving pets.
“My dog’s name is Molly and one day when she ran inside, she brought a dead bird but she gave it to me, so it was like her giving me a present,” says Daniel McCarthy (’16).
Though they still have their old instincts, a hunting companion is not needed in modern times. But the CB owners of dogs have found alternate activities to take part in with their canines.
“I have a dog back home his name is Yoshi and he is really fat and the best memories are of my mom dressing him up for every holiday in these funny little costumes.” says Mrs. Howorun.
“My favorite moment with my dogs is when I dressed them up as tigers on Halloween.” exposes loving owner Joshua Abulencia (’15) “It was the best because all the little kids were running away from them.”
With these new advancements in dog fashion, these fun-loving owners have opened a whole new world of opportunities.
But adorable dogs have always had a rival in the pets department: the classic cute cat.
Cats are sometimes seen as cold companions, but paired with the right owner they can be as warm as a summer day.
“I have a pet cat but he is kinda clumsy and he gets really exited to see me,” says Matthew Spain (’15). “So when he tries and comes to me, he runs into just about everything.”
Dogs and cats are the two most well known pets, but there are plenty of other friends from the Animal Kingdom.
“I bought a hermit crab from a kiosk from the mall.” Jack Steindorf (’15) shares. “He outlived five other store-bought hermit crabs. His name was Giraffe.”
“I had a lot of frogs. One was named Scrapper,” Matt adds. “He would suffocate the other frogs by sitting on their necks. He got fat and wouldn’t be able to roll over from his back. He died soon after.”
Pets of CB offer their owners love no matter time or place proving to be the most loyal sources of affection.
