It is no surprise that kids love pets! We believe that Santa gets a lot of letters from children asking for a dog or a cat every year. It can be a real headache for their parents who are sure that they will be the ones taking care of the pet. However, the long-lasting bond between children and animals is truly special. Looking at their friendship, one can easily forget all the hassle it took before getting a pet. Some kids and their pets have even stronger connections than the average companions and we have prepared an example of that!

Today we want to share a sweet story about a girl named Willow and her best friend—a bulldog named Peaches. Willow has been attached to the dog ever since she was brought home from the hospital. Peaches is the family bulldog, but she immediately became Willow’s bulldog. The girl grew up with the dog being beside her side every single day. She is five years old now and the two are still best friends.
