“Aww he is so cute!”, “I NEED her!” “OMG adorable!”, “Look at his little outfit!!!”. These are some of the descriptions I have heard and even have said when I see a puppy.

When I was young I remember my sisters and I asking our parents for a puppy. We saw our friends having lots of fun with their dog and thought we could do the same. Happily, our parents got us a puppy. His name was “Motas”, a cute French Poodle.

Now as an adult, I still love dogs. I was raised always having a dog in our home. I remember when I decided I wanted to get a dog for myself, I spent hours online researching the best breed for me, a dog’s care, food, shelter, everything. After my extensive research, I concluded there is no exact handbook that tells you how to be a puppy owner, neither one that tells you how to be a parent. Each dog is different, has different likes, dislikes, temper and you learn from him every day as your learn from kids.
