Are you ready for a dog?

Dog ownership is a choice that brings many rewards with it. These can comprise a more healthy way of life, increased sociability and sense of community, as good as companionship. To be certain that you're capable to revel in these advantages it's predominant that you just ask your self the following questions earlier than getting a puppy or dog: can i come up with the money for to have a dog? Ongoing expenditures corresponding to meals, veterinary prices and insurance can fee roughly £25 per week. Am i able to make a lifelong dedication to a dog? A canine's typical span is 12 years. Is my house large ample to house a dog? Do I particularly want to care for a dog day-to-day? Will there be any one at residence for a dog? Dogs get lonely similar to humans. Will I find time to instruct, groom and by and large care for a dog?

I am missing having a pet, but it's been more than a decade. I'm also not sure that I want to put myself or the animal in that situation given my diagnosis. It would sure be nice to have some other creature to have near me, but I wouldn't want to leave it orphaned if/when something happens. No guarantees, I suppose.

That's a good idea. I don't want one that has worst medical issues than I do, though. LOL I don't have the income to support both medical and vet bills. emoticon :winking:

I will check into that. At 59, I haven't really considered myself a "senior," but I suppose the handwriting is on the wall. ROFL (I'll be 60 in August.)

As much as I love dogs I just don't have the time or energy to give them the attention that they deserve. It really annoys me when people own dogs and yet they hardly walk them.

I have three dogs that live with me. While I love them, I do not want any right now.

As much as I would love to have a dog, I don't think I could care for it and give it the attention which it deserves. Great ideas in this article.

I would love to have a dog, but I don't think my cat would ever get over it.

I don't think we are. Its really hard to have a pet in the house because no one is going to look after it when we are all gone for school and work.
