Description

As history shows, dogs have been a popular companion and pet since..well since mankind.  People have come to take care of and keep a variety of animals as pets such as cats, dogs, rabbits, turtles, snakes, fish birds, and guinea pigs.  These are very common and most local pet stores will sell a variety of food, shelter, toys, and accessories for these animals.  Some exotic animals such as alligators, tigers and monkeys are also often desired to be kept as pets but are often very difficult and expensive to care for properly and are also against the law in many states to keep as a pet.  Many pets are loved and respected so much in a household, they become like another member of the family and their owners go out of their way to love and treat the pets almost as good as people.
