    Hi, teacher!
    I believe cats and dogs are the best pets because cats are very quiet, clean, smart and cute. They are so good for lonely and old people. Dogs, on the other hand, are really friendly, adorable, loyal and they love to play with humans. It’s a good pet for children and energetic people.

    I prefer a dog as a pet ’cause they’re the most friendly animal you can find and they won’t want anything in exchange for their affection. It seems that they can understand you at your worst moments and celebrate with you on your happy days.

      Sorry, man. I don’t see eye to eye with you!!! No way!! I have a tarantula as a pet. She is great!! Tarantulas are a noiseless creature and many are quite docile. They require very little space and are easy to care for and feed. You can find tarantulas widely available at pet stores, reptile shows, and online breeders and dealers. They can be handled, but they are not a pet you should handle due to the possibility of injuring the spider. If you want a unique and interesting pet, a tarantula would be your best choice.

    In general horses are calm, friendly, intelligent, careful and sensitive. They feel if the rider isn’t well, if he is sad or sick. But they are also stubborn and almost impossible to be persuaded to do anything they don’t want to do. They aren’t fool as dogs, bored as fish or selfish as cats.

    Nowadays everybody wants to have a pet and, the majority chooses a dog, for sure because they are smart, cute and affectionate pets, the men’s best friend. The problem is that sometimes, people don’t think about the consequences of having a dog. They can be aggressive, costly and worse, they might not be happy in their homes.
    Dogs are probably the best company in the world. They are perfect for boys, girls, adults, older people, anybody. They are really great, but, as any other animal, dogs need some care. They must go out for a walk, play with their owners and attention always. Dogs also can be energetic and destructive. Sometimes, this can be a serious problem.
    Keeping a dog in a house is good, because houses are big enough for a dog and there is always a garden or another place where the pet can have fun. Keeping a dog in an apartment, on the other hand, can bring trouble. Big dogs, for example, can have problems with space and feel uncomfortable. They also cannot bark, because in an apartment we are too close to neighbors.
    So, when you buy a dog, make sure that you’re doing the right thing. Dogs are good, but just when everything around them is good too. If having a pet can be so nice for you, it might be really stressing for the animal. Think twice.

    Most people, mainly children, want to have a pet. The most difficult part is to choose among so many pets like: a cat, bird, rabbit, fish… But the majority chooses the dog, because they are adorable, affectionate, loyal, smart and playful.
    With so many virtues, people forget their defects. The dogs sometimes can be aggressive, destructive, costly… And they need a lot of attention. The owner must take his dog to walk, play with it and devote a part of his day just to give it love. Without this the dog might be very sad. So if you don’t have time for this, the dog wouldn’t be your ideal pet.
    Before buying a dog, you have to think about the place where you live. If you live in an apartment, having a dog might not be a good idea, because the dog can feel trapped, specially a big dog, and its barking may annoy the neighbors. On the other hand, if you live in a house with a garden, having a dog might be a good idea, because it has a place to run and to feel free.
    So, before buying a dog, you have to think a lot, because a dog isn’t a toy that you forget the next day. A dog is a pet that needs attention and love.

    I think dogs are the best animals because they are the most friendly animals on earth. When I was 5 I got a fish and it was not so much fun to me, because he was always in the aquarium and I couldn’t play with him. Then I got a bird, and it was the same thing, always in the cage. My present when I turned 7 was a yorkshire. Since then I realized that dogs are the best animals because they understand what you are feeling, they play with you, they make you happy.

    I think that rabbits are best pets, because they are cute, fluffy animals and they dont need a lot of attention.

    Hey! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site
    mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from
    my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve
    this problem. If you have any recommendations,
    please share. Thank you!

    First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not
    mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to
    writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.

    Any ideas or tips? Cheers!
