we want to truly lead a life of "Love thy neighbor,"
our neighbors should include our animal friends, especially since
they harm us in no way. They only beautify our lives; they are
loving, and they make our lives more lively, colorful and interesting.
We should preserve them, watch them, love them and enjoy their
presence. God has made it clear; Hes says, "I made all the
animals to befriend you and help you."
