There was a lot of eye rolling and disbelief when regulations came down that landlords were obliged to accommodate a tenant’s need for emotional support pets. All it takes is a letter from a doctor to force a property owner to relinquish one more right of ownership.
Although there was a time I would have been just as cynical, I have come to appreciate the joy people derive from their furry companions. Who else consistently greets you with such exuberance? Who else senses your strife and wedges in as close as physically possible? Who else is so willing to please?
There’s no denying the positive impact of man’s best friend.
