Jen is passing on to her children her love of animals. I passed this on ours. My mother passed it down to my siblings and me. She had it passed down to her from her parents who were from a small farming community in Poland. The fact that my grandparents came to live an urban life in Canada, didn’t diminish their love of animals whatsoever, and in my childhood, in which these grandparents lived with my parents, we had pet chickens, rabbits, squirrels, snakes, dogs, cats.. It makes me feel so connected to them still as each new generation takes on this love like a cherished inheritance.
