    So, I realize that some people prefer to have animal companions over humans, for their own good reasons. Do you enjoy the company of a animal friend as much as a human or do you prefer one over the other?

    I prefer both to have. Though, I spend a lot of time with my human friends sometimes. I have a fur baby, a dog , she is pom. I think I can't live without them both.

    I think it's all about comfort zone. Some people love being around the animals company. And some people are worth be around so they choose animals over the pets.

    I think it's mostly due to acceptance and conformt

    True, it really depends on how well you bond with another person or animal.

    I think a lot of times we love pets. But we can't always take care of them. And we have to understand the limits too.

    Taking care of pets requires a lot of time and as well as effort

    I would say that most days I would rather just hang out with my dog than some of the friends or coworkers I have, but that is probably nothing too special among most people.

    Well, dogs are pretty loyal and playful so it makes sense.

    I agree and that means if you are busy with the work and other commitments then surely it may not be much worth as well.

    I don't necessarily prefer one over the other. However, animals are a joy to have around and just watching them can really teach you some serious life lessons. Animals also have a somewhat simple yet sophisticated way of living that is very interesting to see in action.

    True enough, that is most likely why most people love them. They live simple lives.

    None of the superficial things that most humans place emphasis matters to animals and I can relate to them. Bonding with animals is a very special relationship because it is one built on trust and genuine love not material things like money or status. Animals will always remember the kindness or hatred shown towards it by humans.

    It is alarming how many times you can see this not taken into account but you just have to hope that good intentions will take over, which of course we know is not always the case.

    Unfortunately many people aren't ready for such responsibility.

    Pets become your babies - you have to plan your life around them. For instance, I have 3 dogs right now but the only person that my dogs will allow near them is my mother and she's an extremely busy lady. I have to transport them to her house when I am heading out of town(keep in mind that my car isn't really all that spacious and that is 2-3 trips for me. and I have to do the same thing when I return). It is a significant investment but it is definitely worth it.

    Yeah, true enough, hopefully people like that will learn if they really want an animal.
