It’s fun to watch a kid grow up with a pet. They have such an incredible and cute bond. Having a pet is fun, but it’s also a lot of work! It can definitely teach a kid about responsibility. If you’re thinking about getting a pet for your kid you should adopt NOT shop! Did you know that a pet store is not a good place to get a pet? Read up on it here. You should also make sure you’re prepared for a new pet. These tips are helpful for new puppy owners.
I love how Simba and the little one interact with each other. They really do act like brother and sister! They run and play, she fusses at him, they hug and make up, she follows him, he follows her, and they even get into things together. They are something else I tell you. Simba and the little one were like this since day one. Pretty much inseparable. At first she just called him “dog” when she was first starting to really talk and now she calls him “Simsa”. She makes sure to tell everyone “MY dog!” and gives him plenty of hugs and love you’s. They are just too cute for words. It always reminds me of when I had my first puppy when I was younger and how he quickly became my best friend. Dogs are such awesome pets!
I had to post this “harlem shake” video of these two again for those who may not have seen it. Aren’t they cute and hilarious? You should see them in action on a regular basis!
