I believe we have friends not pets.
I have always been around dogs. They have been apart of my family from the time I was young to even now. I grew up with a Saint Bernard, two pit bulls and a German Shepard all in the same house. So I understand each dog is different and have completely different needs. I currently have a German Shepard who I adore. I take care of my German Shepard which includes feeding, walking, and playing.
