    Avoiding Dog Owner Heartbreaks

     Last wk I had to go to the vet to take our Rott pup in for his well puppy check up. I hadn't been there long when a lady came in crying hysterically holding her small dog that looked like it had been put through a meat grinder. As our vet...

    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...

    Yeah

    Honestly, why have a dog if you're not going to take care of it? Dogs are completely dependent on their owners. You need to love, feed/water, bathe, walk, house, and groom them. You need to take them to the doctor too. They're like children. Most dogs with...

    It is another life. I do not know what they can feel. Sience says they can't love because they are missing that part of their brain, but i know they can feel some type of pain, and they cant protect themselves like we can. If you get a pet you should take care of it. You may...
