" 'Since mummy died, we all have to take extra care, Bruno. So come here and let the doctor check you out. I love you and I'm not going to lose you too!'
Studies have shown that when a bereaved person is feeling their loss at the death of a relative, that the presence of an animal who offers unconditional love is nothing short of comfort, especially in sad situations where a wife and mother has died, leaving a partner and a young impressionable child to continue their lives without them. For a child, growing up with an animal is one of the most precious of gifts that a parent can give them. Everyone has a rescue centre near to them. Think about it!" William Forde: February 18th, 2013.
