To buy or Not to Buy

I’ve always loved dogs but time doesn’t permit me as I’m always riding my bike on my free time. Riding really gives a natural high that I can’t explain. I don’t want to get a dog then I’ll neglect it and then my mom will get mad at me because she’s the one who is going to take care of it.

One Sunday morning, a neighbor of ours dropped by. Her name is Chloe, she has big green eyes, has curly brunette hair and a charming smile to boot. She is also tall and gorgeous as many men stares her way when she’s walking. She has a purse and inside it was a dog, it looks like a yorkie poodle, a very small dog. She was looking for my mom and I told her that she’s at the back tending to her plants. I left with my friends for a while and got back after an hour or two.

When I got back home, my mom, surprisingly was so excited that I got from biking and told me that Chloe, our neighbor was selling her poodle mixes. She also added that she can get her dog after a month since it was still breastfeeding from the mom although she can now choose on what dog she wants and she needed me to come along with her to determine on what we are getting. I was amazed but at the same time excited that my mom is open to the idea of getting a dog. I asked her who is going to take care of it and she proudly told me that she will.

If I was to decide, I want a breed that can guard our house like a Dobermann Pinscher, German Shepherd, Bull Mastiff or a Giant Schnauzer. It’s like shooting two birds with one stone on choosing them because they make great pets and they can protect your family as they are very strong, intimidating and intelligent creatures. I have a friend who owns as German shepherd and a Belgian Malinois and he told me that they were so easy to train even without attending training schools because such breeds are highly intelligent. He also told me that they have very calm demeanour but they have very quick reflexes which are needed when your family is threatened by someone.

I told my mom that taking care of dogs aren’t easy as they need frequent checkups and grooming especially the breed that she was going to buy. I also wanted her to make sure that she’s going to buy that kind of breed as it needs more grooming and attention than other dog breeds. I also reminded her that it is going to be costly as she needs to feed the dog proper food and buy vitamins that it will daily consume. Another thing to think about is about the dog’s potty training and who’s going to train the dog. I know my mom’s still active and strong but I don’t want her to waste her energy training the dog. I hope my mom wouldn’t just buy a dog because it’s cute. I still believe that guard dogs are better than toy dogs.
