Readers share reasons why they love their pets
PET love is big in Gladstone.
Last week we asked The Observer's Facebook likers to tell us why they loved their pets so much.
We received plenty of comments and photos from pet fans eager to show off their furry friends.
Cindy Groves said she loved her dog because he was always there to cheer her up and always ready to play, while Maddie Condren loved her dog because "her love is absolute and unconditional".
Lauren Pugh shared a photo of her cat, saying, "TJ is such a curious cat. He watches me do the dishes, and my whole family just adores him."
