There's nothing like going home after a hard day's work and being greeted at the door by your four-legged friend. Always happy, wagging a tail, and eager to please, a dog is truly man, woman, and child's best friend. Cats, although a little more aloof but just as loveable, also remain constant companions for many of us. The benefits of having a pet like a dog or a cat outnumber the never ending responsibilities of being a pet owner. It's been said that people who have animals are generally more happy and healthy in the long run. A canine buddy or feline friend will not only bring companionship into your life, but also countless hours of pure joy, love, and entertainment.
The following books available at the Newport Beach Public Library explore the relationships humans have with dogs and cats, and show how these loveable pets find their ways into our homes and into our hearts forever.
