A dog is a mans companion.
I have had many pets throughout my lifetime. It was considered my first "responsibility" as a kid and I fell in love ever since. Taking care of animals isn't a responsibility to me, it's a passion. I will walk your dog, feed your dog, play with your dog, and of course, talk to your dog. I will be getting a dog of my own soon enough, but until then, I will care for all others!
