Laughs and jokes around,

I’m wondering, what kind of thoughts are on the people mind, who decided to throw out dog, cat or any other pet from the home.
As I believe that pet is almost the same as family member (child, parents), probably less complicated education is required, but anyway it is rather big responsibility, as pet is also living its own life.

Probably there are 1-5 % “force majour” accidents, when it is not possible to take care any more for the acquired pet. There is a chance to give the pet to special “pet home”. I’m not sure about the requirements there, about how they are followed (as these requirements are described on the pet home web pages). Luckily, I did not have any experience, I would like not have this experience ever. But I believe, if pet was grown as normal pet, there should not be any problems. As well even quality food and total expenses for pet are not too high, e.g. my cat expenses are not higher than 15Ls (30$) at month, despite of fact that it has one of the most expensive cat food available.

This summer brought new fashion features here in Latvia. All the “fifas*” got new fashion thing, that establish their status. They have small dogs, it is very funny to see them at stores carrying Chihuahua and other small dogs at the bag, that everyone can see “Look out, I have dog, I’m cool”. Probably some of them indeed love pets and take care of them, but I’m not sure that all of them, as for me it looks like object, object that is alive.
Chihuahua life may long up to 15-20 years, I would like to believe, that fashion end would not make the situation, when homeless chihuahua would run across the streets. Interesting what will these women do with them, when the fashion will be over ?

* “fifas” – posh women (mostly girls up to 20-24 years), style and public opinions are most important things.
