Changes to expect

Dogs are widely referred to as "man's best friend," and few dog owners can imagine life without their beloved pups. But Fido's feline counterparts are incredibly popular as well.
Pointers for apartment dwellers who want pets
Animal lovers who want to welcome pets in their homes may be hesitant to do so while renting. Some might not want to pay additional fees on top of their normal security deposits, while others may fear that pets will cause damage to homes their owners don't own, leading to potentially costly repairs down the road. Renters should know that it's both possible and even common for people who rent to have pets.
Managing road trips with pets in tow
Family vacations provide opportunities for parents and their children to unwind and make memories that last a lifetime. Such excursions can be made even more memorable when taking the family pet.
Adapting to your new furry friend
Adopting a dog is a wonderful way to bring joy into a home, and adoption may very well save a dog's life. According to the Humane Society of the United States, between six and eight million pets end up in shelters each year and half of those are unlikely to be adopted.
