Also pets are always doing funny things that make us laugh and when we laugh that laughter triggers the release of chemicals in the brain that enhance your immune function.
The extract from "Watership Down" by Richard Adams and the article "From Hutch to House Pets A Rabbit is the Perfect Companion, Even Inside the Home" by Susan Clark are written from a different format of text and therefore have different persuading technique on rabbits as subject matter.
Stories about these animals have emphasized the virtues of the animals, and repeatedly taught children to be, “wise, gentle, brave, or cheerful in the same manner as certain birds and animals” (Caduto and Bruchac, XI)....
No animals were harmed during the writing of this article, but one journalist did have to get down on her hands and knees to clean her carpet. ♦

I think cheetahs are very important. My favorite stuffed animal is my Charlie Cheetah. And if they were gone, I would feel very very, very sad. I think cheetahs are very important because they eat prey which is very good for the earth, because if they didn’t it would overflow with animals. If predators didn’t eat prey, there would be too many animals, and it would be hard for kids to play outside. Cheetahs are the fastest land animals in the world! It they were gone, they would have to find the next fastest animal. But they wouldn’t be as fast as cheetahs. They are also very decorative and pretty, and it would be hard to imagine that all of them would be gone. Cheetahs are important in many ways of the life cycle. They are almost at the top of the food chain. And it would be very sad because the only thing to remember them would be stuffed animals and picture on the Internet.

No such restrictions apply to service dogs, which, like Secret Service agents and Betty White, are allowed to go anywhere. In contrast to an emotional-support animal (E.S.A.), a service dog is trained to perform specific tasks, such as pulling a wheelchair and responding to seizures. The I.R.S. classifies these dogs as a deductible medical expense, whereas an emotional-support animal is more like a blankie. An E.S.A. is defined by the government as an untrained companion of any species that provides solace to someone with a disability, such as anxiety or depression. The rights of anyone who has such an animal are laid out in two laws. The Fair Housing Act says that you and your E.S.A. can live in housing that prohibits pets. The Air Carrier Access Act entitles you to fly with your E.S.A. at no extra charge, although airlines typically require the animal to stay on your lap or under the seat—this rules out emotional-support rhinoceroses. Both acts stipulate that you must have a corroborating letter from a health professional.
