Is adopting a dog right for you?

There is fun, joy and happiness in adopting a puppy but before you do, please evaluate your present situation if having a puppy is right for you or not. Having a puppy requires great responsibility and attention, so be sure to fully evaluate yourself if having a puppy is what you need:

Study your living environment. Do you live in a space constraint condo or hotel or a house? A house with a fenced yard might be the best place to a furry friend, condo and hotel will also be a great home for your dog if you can provide him a comfortable place for him to sleep, play and roam around. Like humans, dog have personal neccessities, so make sure that there are places where your dog can legally pee and poo. Most cities have rules and regulations about dogs, so make sure to do some research first.

Having a dog, or puppy requires your financial budget. To properly take care of having a dog, you will have the responsibility of providing the dog his food, shelter, heartworm pills, treats, visit with the veterinary clinics, and more. Do you have extra money to accomodate a dog needs that requires a portion of your monthly income?

Do you have time to take care, play and train your dog? Are you always at home or are you a busy professional that is always out and go home late at night? Because your dog will need your time to play and will need your attention and love. If you are busy and hardly have time to be able to play with your dogs, it would not be a healthy lifestyle for your dog to be alone, lock-up all day in the room while you go to work on the day, party all night, and just spend sleeping time with the dog. Dogs will require time go outside and play, run and walk. So if you think you cannot give your time for these activities, having a puppy or a dog might not be what you need.

There are several breeds of dogs available. Evaluate your reason for having a dog. Do you plan to tag along your dogs in all your travels? You might consider having smaller type of dog because it would be easier to carry them all over. Do you plan to have a puppy to be a guard dog later on? You might consider adopting dogs with strong, intimadating, and tough personalities like german dogs. Do you want puppy or dog as playmate for your kid(s)? Try more playful and not so aggressive, not known as fighting breed dogs. Knowing your reason why you want a dog, will liekly help you determine which breed of dog you want to adopt.
After all the evaluations above, and you think you are ready to adopt a dog, then be ready to recieve unconditional love!

Growing Daffodils

Daffodils are very easy to grow and easy to plant. Most daffodils bulbs can be bought at most nurseries and home improvement centers at the start of fall season because its the best time to plant daffodils. Find a sunny spot in your yard with lots of sunshine and has well-drained soil. Once you have the perfect spot to plant your daffodils, dig 3-4 inches diameter holes, or enough to fit each bulb into. Holes should be around 8 to 12 inches distance from each other to allow room for growth of each bulb and promote plant multiplication. Holes should be around 4-5 inches deep. Place each bulb in a hole, cover the holes with bulbs with the loose soil. To encourage great flower blooms, you can sprinkle some bulb foods around the covered hole. Water everyday the area after planting, enough to keep the soil moist and encourage growth. Do not over water to avoid soaking the bulbs too much that may cause the bulbs to rot.

He got some favorite tv commercials, all of them have nice upbeat or some kind of whistle tunes in it.Cockateil at mature age, usually measures around six (6) to seven (7) inches including the tail. With proper training and perseverance by its owner, it is believe that a cockateil bird can learn to say few words. Although cockateil can be so noisy at times, literarilly shouting their lungs to the max when something is bothering them, but these birds are adorable. They are always excited to see you, letting you know they are happy with their singing and dancing. So if you are thinking of owning a bird, cockateil deserves equal consideration.
