I was thinking about Kittu (our pet dog, which was passed away recently) in the morning and the following points struck my mind incidentally.
1. They are not selfish.
2. Animals don't lie.
3. Animals don't pretend.
4. Animals don't try to prove their supremacy by killing others.
5. Animals don't invade our homes. (not intentionally, some times they enter by accident).
6. They don't know hatred.
7. They know only Love, Affection, Innocence.
8. No caste, creed, colour differences for them.
9. They do not cause Global Warming.
10. They don't skin us alive.
11. They don't wear us.
12. They don't do chemical testing on us and cause agony.
Please love animals and get loved by them. Its an eternal feeling which can be felt only by experience.
