My pet Chow Chow Drake is two years old. I got him from a breeder I found online. He’s pretty high-maintenance. He has to shower twice to thrice a week and needs to be brushed constantly so his fur won’t get tangled. I take him to the vet once or twice a month—to check on how he’s doing, or for his regular shots. He gives me pure happiness and a sense of contentment, and valuable training on how to take care of fragile living things, like future children! Pets are always at the door to meet you when you arrive home. Pets keep you company when you’re lonely. Plus, pets always seem content with their lives—that’s incredibly infectious. Drake eats only dog food—it’s tried and tested. I don’t want him to acquire allergies. But sometimes I give him doggie treats. Bayani San Diego Jr.

I don’t get to hang out with her as often as I want because I’m busy with work, but I try to take her for a 30-minute walk every day. She is my stress-buster. She’s super lambing. Affectionate and caring. She puts her big paw on my lap whenever she wants a hug and a kiss. Bayani San Diego Jr.

We give Yuki a bath and comb her coat every three days. We powder her up so she will smell nice. We clean her eyes with water-soaked cotton balls [...]
It was like Oscar night for local pet lovers.
