A New Pet

Plinky said, “Pick a new pet to take home for free.”

Great Pyre­nees

There’s no such thing as a free pet, as any respon­si­ble pet own­er knows! Beyond the costs of hous­ing and feed­ing the ani­mal, you have to provide for health care such as pre­ven­tive med­ica­tion for heart­worms and oth­er par­a­sites (for dogs and cats, at least), reg­u­lar vac­ci­na­tions, and check-ups. That’s with a healthy, young ani­mal! If the ani­mal gets ill or injured, of course, there are more expens­es.

How­ev­er, if I had an appro­pri­ate home and could afford all the con­comi­tant expens­es, I’d love to have a big dog. I’ve nev­er stopped miss­ing Kar­li, the Great Pyre­nees cross who was stolen from our fam­i­ly. She had a love­ly tem­pera­ment, and I adore large dogs in gen­er­al.
