I sit here typing with two Toy Poodles on my lap. (I come from a long line of animal lovers!) Where did this love come from? Until recently, I assumed this passion for animals was nurtured through childhood. Certainly that is part of it, but I was intrigued by last week’s episode of TLC’s Long Lost Family, in which a woman was introduced to her biological father. While they had before never met, father and daughter learned they had one huge thing in common – a love for animals. Both were involved with animal foundations and rescue programs, and considered animals to be a huge part of their lives. Could this love of animals be partly genetic? Seems possible! Regardless, here are some pictures of my ancestors with their various pets:
Yes, I think this love of animals is just a *bit* genetic. Okay, maybe not, but that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
