There are many wonderful experiences of pet owning. But there are also many draw backs. Some of the joys are playing with it, brushing it, washing it, just to mention a few. But there is also work involved. You have to feed it, water it, and pick up after it. Having a pet can be compared to having a sibling – especially if it`s a dog, or cat. You can play with a sibling, but you also have to help take care of him or her.
Here in Ecuador, there are many kinds of pets. You can get a rabbit, a dog, a cat, a bird, a few fish or even a pig. Here there is sometimes more involved in taking care of an animal. You have to give it parasite medication every few months, as well as flea medication. At least that would be a good thing to do.
As you can see in this picture, I was playing with Chica by covering her in a blanket, it was very fun! And in the other picture is an example of what she does very frequently, put her toy in dad`s shoes. It is very funny, and a little annoying.
If you come here, you should be prepared to see different treating of animals. Not everyone, but some people don`t treat animals like they do in Canada and the USA. They may pick a dog (or cat) up by one paw and swing them on to their lap. They do like the animals, but they just treat them a little differently.
I hope that if you get to re-locate to Ecuador, you will be able to get a super puppy like mine!
