For me, my angel helped me through some of the toughest times in my life. I was being bullied and had and eating disorder. My parents didn't understand and some of my only friends thought I was being over dramatic. He was the one who would greet me at the door and the one who would sit on my lap when I was crying. So yes, I believe that we do seriously underestimate pets.0
