While we might think our pets are just relaxing all the time, they all have very important jobs: helping their owners. Even if their helpful actions seem to be distracting ones, I don't think distractions from loving animals are really distractions. Their actions rather help us to pause for a moment in our busy lives, see love-in-action, smile, laugh, pet our animals, and participate in loving relationships.
