We would like to welcome you to the Garden of Friendships Pet Lovers Committee.
Every pet lover can tell you that we share a very special bond with our animal friends. Their unconditional love has been shown
time and time again to have a positive effect on our overall health and well-being. This garden committee is a gathering place
for pet lovers to share and enjoy articles, tips, columns, and stories; some are educational, others heartwarming, and still
others just bring a smile to your face. Naturally, we welcome you with open arms and paws and we hope you will enjoy your visit
as we share with you the wonderful love of our pets.

What would I do without you,
My precious, furry friend?
Part mischief, but all blessing,
And faithful to the end!
You look at me with eyes of love,
You never hold a grudge...
You think I'm far too wonderful
To criticize or judge.
It seems your greatest joy in life
Is being close to me...
I think God knew how comforting
Your warm, soft fur would be.
I know you think you're human,
But I'm glad it isn't true...
The world would be a nicer place
If folks were more like you!
A few short years are all we have;
One day we'll have to part...
But you, my pet, will always have
A place within my heart.
Hope Harrington Kolb

For all you have given me in your time
The meomories I will take with me when I die
And again we walk together side by side
