Life comes with endless change, so it’s likely you’ve had to make some major and minor adjustments this past year. You may have relocated to a new city, received a promotion, bought new furniture, moved in with someone you love, or ended a relationship. Whatever the particulars, we rely on the things in our lives that are constant to keep us steady through all the changes.

For instance, most of us are lucky that we can count on family or friends to help us through these transitions.

They provide us with unconditional love, companionship and protection, which are all significant things. It’s easy to understand why pet owners will seemingly move heaven and earth to take care of their pets.
