Let’s face it, owning pets is messy. The love I have for my two dogs doesn’t completely overshadow their smell, the belongings they destroy, the hair they leave behind, the things they roll around in, or the inanimate objects they eat.
When you have pets, you know exactly what happens to carpet in a home. Now that you’re remodeling, it’s time to rip that nasty stuff up and go for something with longevity.
Owning a dog can be a great learning opportunity for your children, giving them the chance to learn how to take care of another living creature. Some families also find another benefit of owning a dog, and that is the benefit of having a built-in burglar detractor.
