A few more encouragements from my soap box:
If you pick your pet wisely you'll enjoy each other a whole lot more, like I love my Mr. Cash Pugface! Happy One Year Pugaversary!
- Read all you can about the species and breed you think you're interested in and give honest consideration to the breed characteristics, the time and the costs.
- Don't ever buy a pet from someone selling on the side of the road, you don't really know what conditions these dogs are bred in and good breeders don't sell their dogs this way and you could be supporting a backyard breader.
- Don't acquire a pet on the aww he's so adorable spur of the moment. (I'll admit, I'm guilty of this one!)
