Dogs and cats kinda have a way of growing on us, don't they? lol. I've always considered my pets as part of my family, they're like children to me. I couldn't imagine life without them. I always have this need to be around animals.

How best to discribe the love of an animal and humans love for them! Pets are a member of the family and in some cases they are your only family.

The dog is a fighter and we all know he loves his life. He has the best owners a dog can ask for. I love my dogs and cannot picture my life without her either.

I think Kaufman has a problem. My pets give me unconditional love. The kind I didn't get as a child from my parents. My childhood was cruel, abusive. I suffer from PTSD due to the trauma I experienced. My pets then and now help calm me and give me that unconditional love that I need. Now do you understand Mr. Kaufman?

It sounds like a cute show, and it's ironic that the man in charge of it has never owned a pet!

Isn't that weird? When I realized that, all of his credibility went out the door. You can't really know about something unless you have experience.

Any pet owner know why they love their pets, you do not need a show to tell you that.

I don't know the answers either, but I do love my animals like my own children. I don't think there needs to be any science to tell us why this is - it just is!

Obviously this dog is their child. This sounds like something a parent would do to make their child's last years the best ever!

As any pet owner knows, each cat or dog has it's own personality just like a human does and we respond differently to each animal. I can't imagine not having an animal in my life. I feel sad for Kaufmann.

How could anyone go all the way through life without knowing the unconditional love that comes without prejudice form a dog or cat?

I hope "Jerry" is still going strong. Nothing wrong with doing something for the love of an animal. If there was more of this perhaps the world would be a better place. No, it Would be a better place.

That's so ironic that Fred has absolutely no experience in having a pet and has no desire to do so, yet put together this show. I have so much trouble understanding people who do not share my love for animals. They are missing out on one of the greatest joys in life!! This article did make me want to view the show!

I tend to be more "guarded" with people, than with animals. Animal lovers do have a great need for them. I'm all in.

I thought this was a cute show.
I am an admitted crazy dog person! My dogs are my babies and I love them very much. I trust other animal lovers much more than I do those who say they don't like dogs or cats or animals belong outside. To me they are family and only other pet lovers can understand all we go thru and the expense we pay just to have these animals enrich our lives. When compared to the amount of utter joy and laughter they've brought to our home.......it's priceless!
Animal lovers are a special breed of human, generous of spirit, full of empathy, perhaps a little prone to sentimentality, and with hearts as big as a cloudless sky!

The relationship between man and dog will prob never REALLY be figuredout. Its just a natural bond that some hold.

This show speaks to the soul of every pet owner - just how far do you go for a member of your family?? The answer for me and many others is "All the way!"

Mark Twain, a good old Missouri man, had it right about dogs! "If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man."
