Pet Keeping – A Serious Responsibility – Pets Are Not Toys

Pets are remarkable creatures. They are:
• Masters of life in the moment and in the art of simplicity
• Reflections of a world forgotten, presynthetic, more complete
• Reminders of the quiet strength and dignity of creation not tinkered with
• Keepers of gifts we have lost or never had
• Ambassadors of loyalty, love, forgiveness, acceptance, fun, and truth that are neither measured nor withheld
• Recipients of our wonder, respect, love-and needful of the care that will bring them the fullness of health that comes only from nature obeyed.
Animals are not best served by imposing all the elements of modern life upon them. All the principles about genetic context, medical dangers, and preventive care apply equally well to …
