When did you get your first pet?

I don't have a pet but I'd really like one! My little cousin is about 9 years old and he got is doggy when he was 8. Ever since then, I've been really impressed at how responsible he's become because he has to feed, walk and take care of the dog! When did you get ur first pet?

I had a pet when I was about a month old. My parents got a puppy a month after I was born. She was a 2 year old puppy. My brother was about 2 and a half years old. Sometime when I was very young we also got two cats. I think all children should have pets because I think it teaches them so many things that they don't learn otherwise. Especially if you don't have a younger sibling. Having a pet teaches you to care for another living being that depends on you. It teaches you responsibilty like you said. I never understood how people could live without a pet anyhow. I mean, even if you just get a fish! You still need to clean the bowl/tank and feed it.

My mum tells me we had a dog when I was a young, but I don't remember it. It was a long time after that that I had another, a dog, then tropical fish, a hamster and another dog. Circumstances changed so everything had to go. But things are better now, 14 years on and we now have another dog - a lovely border collie puppy.
