little pet who is guaranteed to give you boundless love please take a moment to be sure you are ready to make a commitment that will last for many years Pets are wonderful but they require proper care and attention and many require training to be the pleasurable companions you may be seeking If you are ready for this responsibility get to the shelter early and select the pet who was born to be loved by you DEAR ABBY I am an extremely pampered pet who was deeply offended by the letter written by Dogged Out in South who wondered how to deal with people who treat their pets as members of the family Please remind her that pets are members of the family According to the dictionary a pet is an animal kept for amusement or or a person especially loved or I am sure 1 speak for all pets when I say that we prefer the second definition Perhaps Dogged Out should treat the aniinals she describes as she would other people Tell us what you while we are incredibly intelligent were not psychic My advice to Dogged Out is to treat us like the companions we are Well all get along much better that way CHLOE A NEW JERSEY PAMPERED PET While I am extremely literate my owner had to type this for me as
