Are you thinking about getting a pet?! Well, if you are, then make sure you are ready for one! First of all, you'll need to make sure that you have food, water, health care, and some shelter. Also, if you have a different kind of pet, like maybe a fish, they will obviously need to live in water! Second, you'll need to make sure that you have the time for this pet. Leaving your dog or cat in the backyard all day isn't considered "time" for your pet. (Well, at least not to me, anyway.) So, depending on the type of pet, make sure you play with them, pet them, and show them that you care. (This varies on different types of pets.) Third, are you responible enough?! Well, obviously if the answer is no, and you know that you can't take care of a pet yet, simple, don't get one. But, if you know you have the responsibility, discuss either if you should get one or not anyways. This probably didn't help that much, considering the fact that everyone else says this about pets, but it might come in handy!

You don't have to pamper your pooch (pet) that much, though!  -------------------------------------->>>
