Throughout my entire life, I have never had a pet. No cats or dogs running around the house- not even a quiet little fish swimming in its aquarium. Although I have no really deep desire to find myself a pet some day (probably because I don’t know how great of companions they can be), it would be an interesting experience to live with a dog. From time to time, I have taken care of other people’s dogs for a few days or even weeks, but having one all on my own would be a completely different story. Waking up early to go for a walk and play with my new found friend would be tiresome at first, but I’m sure that I could learn to appreciate the care that owners have for their pets. And eventually, once I had grown to really like my new dog, there wouldn’t be anything harder than parting with the beast that I had trained from its first days and treated as if he were my own family.
