There are few relationships in the world that are as special as kids with their pets. Kids and pets make the perfect combination, and the love they share as they grow up together is heartwarming and memorable. If you had a pet growing up, you know exactly what I’m talking about. In most families I know, the pets are part of the family, and life wouldn’t be the same without them. Kids and pets learn so much from each other, and I think kids who have pets growing up end up being kinder, gentler and more patient adults than those kids who didn’t have any pets. Of course, my opinion isn’t based on any research other than my own experiences.
Some families even go so far as to dress their pets in Halloween costumes, include them in the Christmas photos and take them on vacations. About two years ago, I wrote about a Luxury Hotel For Cats. Yeah, it’s true. That might be a bit over the edge even for me, but I know of some people who would probably send their cats there for some R&R.
The most heartwarming moments of all when it comes to kids and pets is watching them grow up together. When they start small and both get bigger and wiser together through all their adventures, it’s one of life’s treasures. In this photo collection put together by Buzzfeed, you’ll get to see some kids and pets that enjoyed many, many years together (in some cases, decades). These weren’t all taken by one photographer, and they aren’t a part of some big project, they are just a hodge-podge of photographs that will tug at your heart strings. The turtle photo is my favorite. Did you know they got that big? I didn’t. Now I have to go hug my Mary.
