Pets are Wonderful

When I first came here, I have no friends and did not know anyone.  My in-laws are all welcoming and made me feel at home but I   still felt lost and different.  I think it is just normal  when you are so far away from your family and  trying to learn the  way of  life here which is totally different from what I  grew up in.   Being pregnant then did not help with my homesickness, I was always wanting to burst out in tears.  But it got better as time goes on.  My father-in-law was a huge help to me especially when I gave birth to our  first born.  He was always  there  for us.  

I told my husband that it would be nice if we can have pets. He told me that we will get one when our daughter is a little older and whenever we already have our own home.  The longing for the pet   died down  because  we have our daughter and she  kept us  occupied all the time. It is only when we came back  from from overseas  that we got one.  We found this cute Jack Russell Terrier pup and my husband knew  he was the one.  We named him Champ, he is an energetic, super  hyper fur baby.  

Having pets is like having kids. You have to take care of them, bathe them, feed them, and teach them things. Just like us, their health is an important aspect of their well being because just like children, they also bring joy to the family.  This little guy right here  is now 8 years old.  


Pets are wonderful to have.  We can learn so much from our pets if we pay close attention to them. Finding the right  veterinary clinic like the   pest control prince frederick md  is important.  It is a must that their vaccination is up to date to avoid  sickness.  Just like  people, dogs or any other kind of pets get prone to sickness when they get older especially when they don't get a lot of exercise and  doesn't have a good diet. 

As our family grows, the number of pets we have also grows.  We adopted a toy fox terrier and his name  was Max.  We ended up  giving it to a loving family that also wanted  a pet.  The decision was for his own safety, our big dog was not very gentle to him.  He once broke  his leg because Bolt got rough on him so after that incident, we decided to  have him adopted.
Then my sister-in-law found a Pomeranian on the road sometime in the winter season and she gave her to us.  We named her Chelsea.  She was a runaway dog and  she keep running away from home so we gave her for adoption to one of our friends.  We had her for about a year.
 Champ is the pioneer of our fur babies' dominion.  He is  a loyal companion.  He hangs out with me  when I am doing laundry or in the garden.     Rain or shine, he doesn't leave me.
When we adopted Bolt, Champ made sure to let him know that he was the leader.  He immediately  showed  Bolt his dominance.

Having pets involves expenses but it's worth it.  When we moved out to our old house, we thought of  putting our dogs for adoption but our son fought very hard  not to.  I am glad that we didn't  pursue it, I would have missed these little guys so much.  We have other pets  like guinea pigs and bunnies but they can't measure up to the joy that our dogs gives us.  They are definitely the best!

I have had pets all my life and now miss not having any. We decided though that we want to travel, and it is not fair to keep putting them into kennels besides being very expensive. Maybe one day when we stop travelling I will get another dog. Keep well Diane

Pets truly can be a wonderful thing. More people than not have them because they bring so much joy to their lives. They can't talk back, so it is truly unconditional love! I myself do not have a pet, I am one of the rare people who really just cannot be bothered with one and really dislike that they cannot talk back because I cannot read their minds! hahaha! But I know if my parents didn't have dogs, oh man, I am not sure what they'd do with themselves!

Pets make everything better! Your pooches are so cute. I don't know where my family would be without our two four legged kiddos.

All of these dogs are adorable. Jack Russells are smart little dogs and make great family pets.

Having pets are definitely like having kids. I am happy that you were able to find happiness with having pets. I know all too well, moving away from home and being somewhere new. I am glad you had your husband to be your support!

We have lots of pets too. As a kid, I always had small pets, so I couldn't wait to get a cat when we bought a house. My kids have their own pets too. We are definitely a family of pet lovers.

It is so true that pets require much. From love and care to vet bills and other expenses they are a responsibility. I am so glad you found loving homes for the others that did not fit into your home. Jack Russells are known to be a hyper high energy breed. We had a Jack Russel Pit Bull mix named Brandy - may she rest in peace and loved her to pieces!

I think this is amazing, pets add more love to the house and that's why I love our cat Oscar so much! They're really nice to have around!

So cute! My son is begging for a cat.

GingerMommy said...

Very very cute! You are very right though, pets are so much more than just cute little companions.

Your dogs are super adorable! This makes me miss having a pet around even more. I had a pit bull / German Shephard mix that I simply adored. He was so lovable!

Lynsey said...

Your dogs are adorable and Jack Russells are my favorite! My Uncle had a Jack Russel, it lived till 16 years old, they are the best!

What a sweet dog!! I miss having a dog. It was a like a best friend that went everywhere with me.

What a beautiful dog! They are like kids. Once you adopt them, you have them for life! They depend on you as much as you depend on them.

Aww all your pets are cute. We only have chickens outdoors that we consider pets but the kiddos would love to have a dog someday.
