Be a responsible owner

The other day Eil asked mama if we should have a dog as we all love our doggie friends.
Mama said no as we have no time and the resources to have a dog. Then she reminded us of the message that SPCA always highlight.

"Having a pet is a lifelong commitment, and unless you are certain and ready to care for one, you should not rush into the decision of getting a pet."

Which really make sense.. so sometimes being a responsible animal lover means not keeping a pet when you know you cannot care for it well.

So I guess for the time being the only dogs we'll have around here would be Pinky Winky & Bluey Wooey.



Below is a link to our SPCA Adopt A Dog Campaign. They have some really cute pictures there. Take a look

I think that having an owner is a big responsibility for us, the pet, too, isn't it? arf, arf, arf...

Our humans say looking after us is a full time job.

We feel the same as Yogui - look at how much time we have to spend walking them:-)

Hi Bae
That is a responsible message to put out - too many dogs, like us, end up in rescues because people haven't thought it through.

That's very responsible of your mama Bae. Fuzzy dogs are fun too!

Your Eil is definitely smart, too bad everyone doesn't have the presence of mind to not adopt or buy a pet when they cannot care for them.

I wish more people would think and be responsible like you instead of making impulsive decisions that they regret later!

My mom understands this very much. She would love to have dogs too but she works too much and it would not be fair to the dog. Of course, me, I am no trouble at all! hee hee

Eli is very smart; she must get it from you, Bae! Getting a dog is like adding another member to your family. We're a lot of work and responsibility but we sure do bring lots of joy.

Mack said...

Mom says we three are SOOOOO much work - but she is probably just joking.

I think that is pawsomely excellent advice Eil's mom gave.
Take care!

Eric said...

Great post Bae Bae. Pinky and Bluey don't look too hard to look after though.Unless they read all the naughtiness in that book.

Hi Bae!
That's a great thing to remind everyone of. I know my Owners would love to take home all the homeless doggies in the world but they know that we can't afford or handle another doggie right now! Pinky Winky & Bluey Wooey look pretty low maintenance to me!

Hi, Bae Bae!
I agree with you too!
We need much more than food and water!
Kisses and hugs

Bae Bae Girlie!

You are such a responsible hammie girl. But, if you ever want to borrow a pup for awhile, you can always borrow me. I'd love to hang with you, buddy.

Goober love & smooches,
Stanley

Oh well Bae Bae. Perhaps Eil might want to consider to be a dog sitter?

Love,

Hi Bae Bae,

We aren't too good at blogging anymore. So sorry to hear about Jay. He had a long life.

Did you hear about the Hamster movie? We want to see it!

Hi Bae Bae! Well, we're happy to be your doggie pals, just like you're our Hamster pal. Pinky and Bluey look very clean today.

See ya!

Bae,

Eil & her mama are very wise. Maybe you could learn how to bark so you could become a dawg!

Ya know that is some great advice ya got there stuffies......carin' fer a dog is a lifetime commitment and if ya aren't sure ya can make it....ya shouldn't get any doggies....but the 2 of ya are pretty cute so yer house is still likely a happy one.....'n then there's Bae Bae.too...

Gram's bipeds had friends when they were little a million years ago who had a Bluey Wooey and a Pinky Winky....now what were the chances of that happenin' when we're so far away ???? April ( the friend with Bluey Wooey) had ta take 'em everywhere she went...even ta church....wonder if she still has 'em....she gets married next week......

Toffee said...

You two are certainly very responsible; I am sure your mom is very proud!

Amber-Mae said...

It's good that your Eil is honest that she really can't have a big responsibility at this moment. Some people just simply go get a pet when they aren't ready or know they can't really spend much time with it & then end up neglecting it & caging it for hours everyday. So unfair to the poor animal. Although you are quite easy to take care of, I think your Eil is doing a good job so far.

Twinkle a.k.a Chicken Little said...

Bae, your mama is right. Maybe you just hang out with your Pinky & Bluey at the moment.

Eil will be a great caregiver and a perfect dog's companion! I know that by watching she raises you, Bae Bae!
