    if you have your dog at home or not your dog should have what he/she may need. You should in my opinion have things a lot like when you have a baby you should be carrying anything you know the dog will need just in case something happens and you cant get home. If you have a...

    Today I was walking my dog (Staffordshire Bull

    Terrier) in the park and a Pitbull approached us, dived on my dog as was very aggressive. I panicked and kicked the dog on the chest. I took my Indie home and called the ranger. I went back to the dog with a leash and waited for the ranger. Whilst I was waited, I noticed that...

    Adopting Dogs

    I do believe in Responsible dog ownership which is why I will not adopt a dog even though I would really like to have a friend at home. Currently I live in an apartment and I am on a limited income. I also travel a bit and there really isn't anybody who is capable of looking...

    All Pets

    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...

    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...

    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...
