Children usually love animals. I rarely hear of a child that does not love them. Children seem to have a natural affection for animals. Having said that, many adults like animals as well. It is not rare for me to see an older lady holding her cute small dog on a leash. If animals were not such cute animals, people would not want to have them. If they did not have them, they would not be willing to take them to a vet in case something bad happens to them. I do not wish anybody having a sick dog. Unfortunately, this happens from time to time.
