    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...

    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...

    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...
