They Grow Up So Fast . . .

Our little girl is getting big.

I’ve never had a pet before, let alone a puppy, so this whole experience has been a bit of a whirlwind for me.

She’s a cutie though; I think we’ll keep her.  ;)

Do you feel it’s beneficial for children to grow up with pets?

    Yes! Not only for the responsibility learned, but for the emotional benefits. A friend who’s always there no matter what, who always listens, to play with or cry on? It’s good for anyone. We try to get my son over to my folks’ house (we can’t have pets save for fish) to see the family dogs and cats as much as possible – they calm him greatly, he loves them, they love him, and the rest of the week is usually much nicer.

      Crystal,
      That’s so wonderful that you can utilize your parents’ pets so frequently so your son can bond with them. It’s only been since Christmas since we got our puppy but the girls already consider her an integral member of our family. It’s a neat bond to see nurtured and grown.

    Ohhh!! Yes I think it’s beneficial and I loved growing up with pets but I really, really don’t want one and my girls really, really do.

    No children here yet, but I couldn’t imagine them growing up without pets! I think dogs provide a special kind of friendship for children, along with learning responsibility! Your “little” girl up there sure is a cutie!!
