A. We often laugh when wesee cute videos about pets on the web. Or when they appear around us, we cannot help playing with them.
1. According to the article, there is aresult that shows “Other researchers have found reduced stress in ownersinteracting with their dogs after stressful tasks, compared with interactingwith friends and spouses.”2. When dogs appear in people’s eyes, wecan not concentrate on our work. But in our interactions with dogs, our anxietyover our lives diminished and excitement increased. (Barrie, P87)B. Pets are a topic that can increasemutual affection and mediate the atmosphere. Especially when chatting with new friends.
II. Pet companionship is a comfort to us.A. In fast-paced life, weare always busy everyday.
In particularly tired, we may spend less time withfamily and friends. But if we have pets, we feel more relaxed and loneliness aswe play with them.1. According to the article that states”Researchers have found a reduction in loneliness in pet-owning women livingalone, while others have seen reduced loneliness in nursing home residentsafter animal-assisted activities,” (Barrie, P87)B.
They are our silent comrades in life.Although they can not speak, in the process of getting along, we will also appreciate thepet’s trust in us. This feeling of trust makes us more responsible. 1. It reminds me of the story about my hamster.
Its name is pudding. It is a cute, but a little naughty princess. I remember once I found out that its cage wasopen. I know it must have been opened by itself. I was especially worried because it wasso small that if I could not find it, it would starveto some corner. I hold back crying and keep shouting its name. As I was about to collapse and was very self-blaming,I noticed it looked at me in the wardrobe door without moving. I knew it was scaredwhen it came out, so it did not dare to move in thecloset.
It knows I would come to find it. I was very happy it trusts me.III. Pets keep us healthy and able toexercise properly.
A. For children, during theprocess of getting along with the animals that will develop their compassion,and learn how to take care of pets. In the expression of love at the same time,they will learn to help others, and also know how to communicate with friendsin the future.1.
This can be well reflected in thearticle. “As a result of the survey, it was seen that keeping a pet benefitsconsiderably children behaviorally, psychologically and in terms of sharingresponsibility and loneliness.” (GÜÇLÜ, P81)B. For the elderly, the companionship ofpets makes them still feel that their existence is meaningful, and will not have a negativepsychological reaction to old age.
1. According to the article, “Socially isolated older pet owners aresignificantly less depressed, according to a study on petownership and pet attachment as factors supporting health in old age.” (Suthers-McCabe,P93)2. Wheninteracting with pets, it also motivates us to exercise. For example, the ownerof a dog will walk the dog every day. “Owning a dog may encourage physicalactivity, which may contribute to improved cardiovascular health. Contact withanimals can confer psychological benefits, relieving symptoms of mental orcognitive illness and loneliness.” (Cherniack?P715?CONCLUSION:I.
As pets become our emotional sustenance, they teachus healthy living, taking responsibility and cultivating compassion.II. Pets not only become our friends in life, and makeus feel good, they also become more indispensable companionship.III.
If you do not like animals, please do not hurt them. If you like pets,then take responsibility for them. WorksCitedBarrie, Leslie.
