You’ll receive a free lams starter kit, which includes pet food as well as literature on responsible pet ownership. But best of all, you’ll get a lifetime of companionship and unconditional love from a cute and cuddly, furry friend.

DEAR MIKE: The Pet
Adoptathon is a worthy program, but I mrntfmm a word of caution: Readers: Before you rush out to adopt that adorable 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 Carolina,” 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 companionship,” or “a person especially loved or indulged” I am sure I speak for all pets when I say that we prefer the second definition Perhaps “Dogged Out” should treat the annuals she describes as she would other people Tell us what you want.Lady — while we are incredibly intelligent, we’re not psychic.
My advice to ‘Dogged Out” is to treat us like the companions we are. We’ll all get along much better that way.
CHLOE, A NEW JERSEY PAMPERED PET P.S. While I am extremely literate, my owner had to type this for me, as my paws do not reach the keyboard.
DEAR CHLOE: You may be pampered, but you are also well-bred and good-mannered and a credit to responsible canine owners (or should I say family members?) everywhere.
