    Love Them

    I truly believe everyone who owns a pet should be responsible for their care. Pets should be taken care of like we take care of our children. They look to us for love and care and put their trust in us to protect them. They should be treated like a member of the family. They...

    Be Responsible For Your Puppy

    Being a dog owner takes a lot of responsibility and requires major commitment to an animal that may live 15 years or so.  This should not be taken lightly. When your dog misbehaves, you can’t just trade him in. If he gets sick, you have to take care of...
