Pet comfort

In the stormy morning I hear the neighbor's dog whining and wish I could go and sooth him. I don't have any pets. Many of my friends do. I know communion with an animal is a way to find joy and solace. Many of my friends don't hesitate to curl up and snuggle with a wet, furry, four legged beast. My son has a pet mouse that I imagine sleeps near his pillow. My sister never was bothered by fleas. My best friend never leaves the dogs home alone.

I get it. But... I'm not that connected. I guess I'm more the type to appreciate nature in an objective way.
