Animal Companions and Friends

For those who share their lives with one or more four legged friend a house just is not a home unless you are brushing cat hair off your business suit or handfulls of blown coat off your kitchen floor.

For as long as records have been kept there are references to animals kept not only as hunters or draught animals but as companions and friends. Ask just about anyone you meet - even those who do not have pets and they will more likely have a story about a beloved family or neighborhood pet from years gone by.

Whether you are a dog person or a cat person, a horse lover or a rabbit fan, sharing your life with animals is known today to be a healthy option. Children raised in a household which includes one or more pet are shown to have fewer allergies. Stroking a dog or cat lowers blood pressure and anxiety levels. Not many activities can be as exhilarating and spirit lifting as cantering across a grassy field on your very own horse.

So, this website is for those of us who share our lives with animals and for all our four-legged friends. You'll find stories, advice, photo galleries and a place to chat with two legged friends.
