I have always loved pets, from birds to snakes. Ever since I was young my mom told me having a pet was a great responsibility, and it was. I had several dogs, cats, birds and I was responsible for their food, water and their potty time. I would pet-sit on weekdays and weekends. The cat's name was Tony and the dog's name was Burbuja (bubble in Spanish). Animals are true, faithful and loyal. When they wag their tale or purr, it's like icing on a cake. They are those furry and non-furry friends that will always love you. To me they are part of a family and should be treated that way. Now that I have a Great Dane puppy, she is the apple of my eye.
