Absolutely Un-Real….Here Are 10 Unbelievable Animals That Saved Other Animals
This is for all those that believe that animals are nothing but beasts to be used and exploited. I believe that animals enrich our lives in many, many ways. Not only do they feed us, but they also give us comfort, no, I’m not talking about using their skins to keep us warm when we are cold, I’m talking about a “spiritual” comfort.
After all, what is more comforting and spiritual, than siting on the couch, with your dog’s head in your lap, feeling his heart beat and knowing that not only do you love him, but he in turn, loves you as well?
Yes, I believe that animals are very capable of loving humans beings and other animals as well.

Animals are no different from us in that regard and I think that their presence here on Earth is tremendously enriching.
