Me: “What’s your favorite food?
Flipper: “Pizza, of course!”
Me: “What’s your favorite thing to do?”
Flipper: “Love going for car rides.”
If I would ask, that’s exactly how Flipper would answer those questions.
She feels all that, and more, it’s part of her inalienable Bill of Rights.
It’s a win/win
Dogs. Cats. Birds.
Our furry and feathered friends — their antics can be a source of endless entertainment.
(Or chagrin — like when Sunny “trimmed” my house plants.)
They are fun to have around. And, as shown by numerous studies, they help us lead healthier lives.
It’s a win/win situation.
Over the years I’ve been fortunate to meet people who taught me a lot about pet ownership.
Or, as some of them put it, they taught me about, “Pets’ Bill of Rights.”
Top three things I learned from them:
- Adopt. They are so many unwanted animals; adopting from a shelter is the best way to get a pet.
- Play time. Having a pet when you are hardly home it’s never a good idea. Being home alone for extended periods of time is not fair to anyone, including your pet.
- Food and safety — make sure you create a safe home environment. And provide nutritious food.
(Did you hear that Flipper? Pizza only on Sundays : )
Be kind to your pets — they are part of your family.
Treat them well.
Remember: your pets had no choice between you and freedom.
Thanks for visiting.
