I realize that some people will never understand the attachment that people have for their animal companions, and I feel sorry for them. If you are human and you share your life with another creature for any length of time, a bond will be established. If you look at it objectively, it is quite similar to parenting. You have many of the same responsibilities for the life of your friend, as you would for a child. In return you get love and trust.
