If I had to choose, I would probably pick a pet that doesn't require much work to take care of. In the midst of high school, hours of our time is dedicated to studying, doing homework, and other extra curricular activites. While some people can easily handle their tasks with ease, I am not those type of people. If I can barely do the minumum of what is given, what are the chances of taking care of a pet at the same time? Although when I was little, I had always wanted a dog. Seening kids play with them made me yearn for one as well. A caring and loyal companion that can listen willfully to your problems and comfort you without words is something I really wanted to have. I remember my fourth grade years when I fipped through magazines about the species of dogs, how to take care of them, and where to buy them. Though I pleaded, my wish was never granted. At that time, I couldn't understand why my parents didn't wanted me to have a dog. It just wasn't fair. Almost everyone had one, so why couldn't I. The mere thought sticked to me until elementary ended.
