Humans and animals, especially those we keep as pets at home have a link that is both special and enjoyable. This bond becomes even stronger when both grow up at the same time. There is a special bond to the animal and the human when they grow up together and this can be seen in the pictures that we have put together.
It is matter of their very lifestyle that canines and felines grow up faster into adolescence than do humans. You will see that the growth in pets can be much faster than the humans growing alongside. It is very easy to see how a cute, clumsy and adorable puppy which could not even walk without stumbling grow up all of a sudden into full blown adult shape within a span of few months.
The growth spurt and changes in the bodies of your pets will somehow help put things in your own life into proper perspective. You also realize that the animals that stay with you are indeed special as they spend their lifespan with you and are faithful during this time.
When compared to an average human being the lifespan of a pet is quite small which means that you will have to deal with their love and then their loss. You can literally watch the cute and furry companion of your childhood grow up, grow older and then pass away. This can be a tough and sad experience which will also prove to be enlightening. This may not happen to people with who choose to have a tortoise as a pet as it indeed has a really long lifespan, but then again this lifespan may be shorter when they are brought up in captivity.
The thing about pets is that they become an inextricable part of our lives and leave us with many memories and more importantly lessons that will take us through the difficulties of life. They teach you about loyalty and loving unconditionally even without trying which is what makes the lesson so valuable. You should therefore strive to make the life of your pet comfortable and full of affection. Also take the time to capture the important moments in the life of your pet so that you can view them letter with a great deal of fondness. You will really value these memories as well as the images that you have managed to capture.
