Hello everyone. In my life, everytime I feel sad, dispointed, or thinking-negatively I often share my feeling with my mother, my dad, or some of my best friends. I love them so much, I really beleive they can share almost everything with me, encourage me to do things better, but the hard thing is that they are not always available all the time. So, I this time, luckily I have my little pet dog. He is quite small, but he is really smart, he really understand me. He like my best friend who I can share everything, he is my trusted friend. When I am sad, I always take him go to park with me, walking and enjoy the fresh air, looking around and then I forgot all of my sadness. How about you? Do you think having own dog is a great idea?

Well, having a dog is a great idea. Having one will teach you how to be responsible. Because you have to take care of your dog. However, I think a person should also be practical whether he should have one dog or not. If he is allergic to the smell or whatever, he should not have one. If he/she is always busy, then it is practical not to have a dog.

I own a dog and I agree that it is a wonderful idea! I have two cats, a dog, a bird and three fish so my house resembles a little zoo sometimes but I would not have it any other way! My pets are my best friends. I have been known to share my problems with my dog and my cats. It feels to me as though they understand and I know they love me unconditionally.

Dear friend, I hope if an individual likes to have one it is upto that individual, moreover one should be able to look after that dog well also. I have two dogs they are very well trained and obediet. I do not need any watch men for my home. I feel one should have time and other people to look these dogs well.

I don't think it is needed for us to have dog. It is good to have a dog pet but if we don't have money to buy a dog. It is not necessary I think to have one... Have a great day!

Well, I think that if you can take care of the dog, and you can give that dog everything that it needs, then sure you can own a dog, but remember a dog is a great responsibility. You have to feed them dog food, bathe them, have a place for them to stay, vaccinate them (I strongly recommended vaccinating them), you have to walk them, you have to have them spayed or neutered (if need be), and you have to have someone to take care of them if you can't.

Hi Long! I also love dogs. Several times my family has dog. When I lost it, I felt pain as losing a good friend. Have a dog is great. But my family has children, his hair isn't good for children. I also don't want to bear the pain of losing him again.
