I passed by a neighbor one day and I had the chance to ask him about the pet dogs that he has. I love their puppies, a bred from dogs that doesn't grow taller, at all. It is stout and cute. He says that the mother dog is pregnant, again. Since I wanted to own a dog like it, I asked him if I could ask one puppy once the mother dog delivers. Without much ado, he offered to me the one from the two remaining puppies he has. I so gladly accepted the offer. Now, we already have a puppy. My kids love it. Maybe having a pet will inspire them to go on to vet tech schools.
