Pets bring such joy into our lives. If you currently don’t have a pet or have never had a pet. This article is for you.
For many years I shied away from having a pet. To much trouble, mess and whatever other excuse I could muster up. Like with all things in our lives timing and reason will intervene. Along came Glitzy.
In times when life is stressful or difficult, I can always come home to a wagging tail, tons of kisses and sweet barks welcoming me back. She is still ready to provide comfort, love, and companionship no matter what. She can pull me out of a dark place just because she wants to play. Throw her toys or bark at me for treats.
Sometimes we all need a distraction from life. I can tell you without reservation that a pet brings such joy into a home. Adopting a pet is such a blessing to the animal and your family. Dogs seem to know somehow when they get home and start getting a sense that they’re back. It’s as though they somehow know you saved them from the life in the shelter. Don’t get me wrong shelters have amazing folks caring for the animals. Like humans, dogs need a den, a home that is safe. You become a part of the pack.
After a time dogs will bond with you as nothing else compares with the love a dog. All they want is a pet, a hug and a cuddle. In Glitzy’s case throw in a couple of treats as well.
Having something to care for is a responsibility. So please before you get a pet make sure you’re willing to take care of, keep safe, warm, and pet veterinary care. Pets need heartworm medicine, vaccinations, and routine care for illness. Make sure you can budget for these things. It’s not fair to a pet to suffer because we did not think about monetary consideration.
Research the right pet for you or your family. Take a look at breeds for things such as hyperactivity. Water dogs need to exercise and play a lot this is just one example. All races have something that requires your particular attention. Hyper dogs for instance that need lots of exercises to burn off energy. If you live in a small apartment, this could be a recipe for disaster. Torn up clothes, furniture and all sorts of not so fun things to come home to find. So be sure you read the temperament of a breed before you just get that dog.
Adopting dogs, you can not go wrong. Having passed two myself. I can tell you from real experience they were the sweetest dogs. Anyone who has taken a pet says the same thing. They feel like the animal knows you saved them. It’s a unique bond for sure
