>Companion animals

Introducing Bella and Siela:
Bella the German shepherd is about four years old and a recent addition to our family.(about seven weeks ago)
Siela,the Rhodesian Ridgeback X was adopted by our daughter some three years ago;
both dogs have been adopted through refuges and are absolutely adorable.

As our daughter and her husband live within walking distance of the Nursing Home Facility where Ken now resides,they are regular visitors………..not only to Ken,but other residents.
I think the highlight of Ken’s day is when his furry/hairy grand-babies come avisiting

Luckily Eventide has a policy of allowing well behaved companion animals to visit, and on weekends in particular,there are “our two”,a pair of Dobermans;a border collie, a blue heeler,a Maltese terrier, and Lulu…..a Sheltie PomeranianX.

Add to these,Polly………..a silver tabby kitten who is resident,and an aviary of birds………

The interaction between residents and animals is joyous and loving:
Bella and Siela have befriended a young lass with brain damage and major physical disabilty as result of a road accident.
“M” can not speak,but to see her BIG smile when Bella “kisses” her foot and nudges her hand is heart warming.

Which then begs the question………..
WHY and HOW can humans be so cruel to animals,when the said animals can have such a positive effect on our lives?
