Should I get a dog?
A dog will do his utmost to keep you laughing, and he won't mind if you drop a few tears on his coat when you're feeling down. He'll play as hard as you want, for as long as you want, or happily curl up at your feet when you need some serious relaxation. And a dog is so forgiving, allowing us silly humans our frequent mistakes, yet never holding them against us later. In short, a dog is just about the perfect friend.
However, he also relies on you for nearly everything-food, water, shelter, veterinary care, exercise, companionship, training, grooming and protection. You therefore need to know what you're getting yourself into. Stop to think about what you expect from a dog, and what he will need from you.Remember the exercise, grooming, training and costs involved in keeping your dog healthy and happy.
