.... why do we love our pets so much?
Because they do not judge us.
Because the love they give us is a direct result of the love we give them. It is not based on how we look or do not look ... it is simple and true.
It would be nice if in this world we where judged by our actions and not by a pre concieved perception of who we are.
Our body is sometimes a disguise that people can not see past ... maybe thats why we love our pets so much ... they see us.
