The Keeper of My Soul

A pet is a soul-keeper, a safe place for the most sacred part of you: hopes and dreams and the secret notions of your heart. The part too tender and delicate to trust to other humans, who might trample it, toy with it or neglect it.
But a pet is not human. A pet is too pure to comprehend our muddled ways. For that, we need people, fellow-travelers on our convoluted human journey.
