Whoever said money can’t buy happiness, obviously never owned a pet. As the great Pythagoras said: animals share with us the privilege of having a soul. There’s nothing more comforting than to have these pets stay with us through our ups and downs – just being there without questioning the validity of our emotions and decisions. Hence, it is but proper to tag them along with us when we treat ourselves for vacations – say, to the beach!
