I have had dogs since 1983 when I quit my Real Estate Management job and gave up renting and became a homeowner for the very first time. We had a wonderful cat named Boots and a beautiful Flex head Labrador Retriever dog named Angel. My two daughters would grow up with Angel and Boots to their natural deaths. Our heart was big and we would get other rescue dogs and cats to live out their appointed times by God.
Taking Care of Pets
(Dog, cat, rabbit, lizard, snake, rodent, pig, horse, llama, or any other animal pet)
It is more than feeding, watering, grooming, exercising, giving medical attention to, playing, and housing an animal. It is sharing your heart with them. When they are sick and when they are well, and when they die.
When you no longer want the pet for whatever reason. It is kind to re-home them if you can find a welcoming place. It is NOT kind or loving to drop them off in the country, lake, or urban setting. Your pet has to fend for itself to find food and water and a safe place to sleep. They feel betrayed by someone they love (humans). Often your unwanted pet will starve to death or join a pack of other animals in the same predicament. They can become vicious and attack humans and other animals.
Love your pet by being kind to them while they are under your protection and care.
