You should know that owning a pet is a big commitment. You’re responsible for your dog or cat as soon as you bring it home. It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the requirements before committing to the responsibility. While it’s an exciting time, it’s also when you need to be planning for welcoming your pet into your home.
There’s no reason to second guess your decision. All you have to do is prepare and plan ahead of time and you’ll be all set. Teach yourself the basics and learn the rest as you go. See what you should know about owning a pet.
There’s no way around it, pets are messy. They’re going to get into mischief and want to come into your house with muddy paws. It’s up to you to have a plan for wiping or spraying them down before they hit your carpet. Another idea is to have them come through the garage so that their paws have time to dry before entering the house. Be prepared to give them baths and groom them when they’re full of dirt.
They get Fleas & Ticks
Fleas and ticks may latch on to your pet if you’re not careful and use preventative solutions like Pet-Lock flea and tick for dogs. When it comes to flea and tick products, each dog and cat has unique needs. The mission of PetLock is to provide a variety of quality products to meet those needs at affordable prices. Whether your goal is to effectively kill fleas and ticks on your dog or cat, in the home or yard, or if you desire an effective long-term preventative, there is a product for you. Don’t panic if you encounter this situation, simply get the product that’s going to help you solve the problem.
Although they may bring you some stress, pets are adorable and lovable. That’s all they want is to share their love with you. They’ll put a smile on your face and be there for you when you need them the most. It’s the great reward of owning a pet. They become part of the family and you soon realize you can’t live without them. You become attached and look forward to being with them each and every day.
They need Exercise
Just like humans, pets need play and exercise too. If you own a dog, take it for runs or walks with you outside. Another idea is to let them run wild at the dog park. It’s important to play with your pet and stimulate their brains and muscles. Get toys for your pet and make sure they receive some sort of exercise daily. Enjoy the time with your pet and use it as a way for you to destress from the day too.
Owning a pet is an important undertaking. You’re responsible for the health and wellness of your pet once it’s in your hands. This is what you should know about owning a pet.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
