I think animals can be good friends for us, people.I have 3 pets: two dog and a cat. Two years ago a hated cats. For me they were lazy,boring,unnecessary,but later something has changed and I started love not only dogs,but cats too.
My dogs are Jim and Cherrry. First 3 months when I get cat(Matilda) I thought they will never pal up, but now these three guys are always together. They always make me happy. I wish everyone has pet,because they do our life lighter and funnier.
