My son has been desperate for a pet for a long long time but I have been a bit unsure about getting him one. He is now ten which seems a suitable age to take responsibility for an animal. He has spent a long time trying to decide what animal he should get, and kept going back to a dog. I was really not sure about this as I am not from a family who ever kept pets due to fur allergies. We did have a tortoise and I had hamsters but that is really not the same. We finally gave in and got him a dog. Here he is
He is a King Charles Spaniel and he is five months old. Luckily he is very placid and already house trained. My son has gone though a couple of names, he started off as Floppy but now is called Eddie. We now have a lot to learn but it should be fun and hopefully we will get fit taking him out for walks.
