May this prayer be heard by all those who share their life with an animal. May we be reminded of our pet's loyalty, love and innocence. May no animal be hurt by its owner in 2010. This is our wish for the New Year!

I love this prayer! I love my fir babies Chichi and Cricket,and would go without myself before I let them go without! I do feed them clean water,and I warm up there food in the microwave because they like it warm(not too hot) and I always hold them and let them both sit in my lap,and they even sleep in the bed with me.There spoiled rotten,and I would not have it any other way!!!
