I’m Hiep, a new member from a non-speaking English country-Vietnam. I need helps from everyone who is interested in my essay.
Have you ever considered your pets as an important part of your family? Some people just only consider pets are animals, while others respect the presence of pets in their family and treat them as their family members. As far as I am concerned, pets should be treated and cherished like a family member despite the fact that they are not human beings. My points of view will be elaborated and exemplified below.
First and foremost, pets are like your companions. Pets like dogs or cats in our families are our confidants although they are animals and they cannot talk and express their feelings like human being. Imagine every time you come back home after a stressful day at your office, your dog always greets you up whenever he or she realize your voice. It would be great when you can play with him, embrace or pamper him like your children or siblings. You also can find it easier to relive stress since every time you play with your pets, you can balance your mind and relax better. Even though your pets cannot hear and talk to you, you can still pour out their inner feelings with them like when you are opening your heart to your best friends, and sometimes looking at their innocent faces, you can feel rested in your mind.
Second, pets sometimes play as a protector of our family members. People love pets because they are very sensitive and loyal. Moreover, pets like dog prove to be great allegiant. Realizing this excellent characteristic, many people use dogs in their explorations and works and a lot of whom were saved or protected by their close-knit dog. For example, in the past, people used to use dog to find and catch animals like rabbits or birds in order to survive. Dogs also protected them from dangerous animals like snakes, hyena or even lions, leaded them through a forest or found the way to their home when they lost their directions. Today, dogs play a role like baby-sisters or house-keepers to our families.
Last but not least, pets also play as a brother or sister to our children. Children are very fond of playing with pets like dogs and cats. They often consider their dogs and cats like your siblings and treat them fairly. Sometimes, little child can be more excited when playing with his dog. Every time he falls, his dog encourages him to try again. Every time he cries, his dog cheers him up. Our kids seem more active and more mature day-by-day when they have an animal-brother or sister to take care and play with them. Our pets are also people who bring our family members together when all of us want to spend time taking care of them. They also teach us, especially our kids important life lessons which is how to be responsible for something.
In summary, albeit pets like dogs and cats are animals, they should be loved and pampered like a real family members. They would be a companion, a guardian, or a brother or sister in our family, and we have to admit the fact that they are very lovable and respectable, too.
