Readers tell us what they learned from living with pets

We asked you on Facebook to tell us about the life lessons your pets have taught you. Here’s what you said.

Miss Cleo is a senior dog who was surrendered by her owner at Orange County Animal Services. We (my boyfriend and I) went and picked her up along with one of her cellmates. She seemed very docile and refined. … not the case! She’s a vivacious ball of sass and good times! She has taught me to never lose hope, have a good time and that it’s totally OK to pass gas in public as long as you walk away pretending not to smell it.

My dog regularly reminds me that going outside is insanely more fun than staring at screens while she stares at the door.

Play, nap and smile!

My Lil’ Man has taught me that with the right frame of mind and amount of determination, physical limitations can’t stop you from doing what you want to do. What I mean by that is that I stand 6 foot 4 and weigh 235 pounds. He is five inches tall, weighs six pounds, but somehow runs this fucking circus. Damn you, Spike, DAMMNNN YOUUUU!!!
