Animal Lovers Are Never Lonely

Early childhood is an impressionable period of life in which children are often dog lovers. Parents have a great contribution in the building of their children's character by encouraging them to be animal lovers and allowing them to have a dog as a pet. Parents should encourage their young to become animal lovers because this will mean never to be alone, to always have a friend, to be comforted when sad, to be happy and needed, to learn responsibility and, last but not least, to love. That's what an animal ...
