Get us outside on beautiful fall days, rainy days and snowy winter days.
Listen to us sing.
Warm our beds on cold nights.
Alert us to the arrival of mail.
Help us live a little longer.
Make us smile.
Agree with everything we say.
Warm our knees with their chins.
Provide a use for old tennis balls.
Help lower our blood pressure.
Test how fast we can run.
Keep squirrels from taking over our yards.
Teach us the meaning of unconditional love.
