I would like input from families who have pets. How did you choose your pet? What things did you consider in choosing a pet if you have children? How has the pet situation worked out for you? What advice would you give other families who are considering getting a pet? This article will be published this summer on myregence.com, a website for clients of Blue Cross Blue Shield. Contact me at margaretevansphotography @ gmail.com . Thanks!!!

Hi,

Both our dogs were pound rescues. The first was pulled out of a home by animal control after his mother was beat to death by the original owner. He was terrified of people and looked like he needed a loving home. It took six months to get him over his fear of us.

Our other dog was dumped at the pound by his original owners. They bought him when he was a little puppy. But, when he became a full grown dog, they dumped him at the pound. Seems many people want cute puppy dogs. They just never envision the puppy growing up. Animal shelters are full of puppies that committed the sin of growing up.

If would like to speak further, you can reach me at culshaw@spcfreelance.com

My husband and I conducted extensive research before we bought (yes, bought) our first two Labrador Retrievers–we purchased siblings. We chose them because their temperaments fit our lifestyle. We are physically active, have small grandchildren, and stressful work lives. The dogs lived long and well, keeping us company, loving us as we did them, and in general improving our lives. After the last one died, it was a year before we found another dog. This time, we adopted a Lab X who has the traits of a Lab and is every bit as sweet and lovable. Unfortunately, she is extremely prey-oriented and in our country setting that trait makes nature walks lively. For us, big dogs with companionable personalities are our choice. All of this means: choose a dog that suits your family and its lifestyle for a perfect match.
