Pet Animals...what's out there?

A pet is a household animal kept for companionship, some with proper training are capable to go further and provide actual entertainment and even assistance to the daily lives of their owners. Pet choices may vary depending on what we look for, generally loyalty or playfulness, appearance or abilities determine the trend for the most popular pets.
It's also known that keeping a pet can provide health benefits for peoples daily routines such as stress relief, nowadays "therapy animals(mostly dogs) are brought to visit confined humans, such as the sickly. The simple act of walking a dog can provide both the person and the dog with exercise, fresh air, and social interaction.

So in terms of pets..what's out there?

      Cats & Dogs

  (Sugar Glider)

Rodents(squirrels, praerie dogs, chinchillas, guinea pigs, gerbils, rats, sugar glider etc...)

     Avian(parrots, toucans, canaries, parakeets, eagles etc... )

Fish(Goldfish, Koi etc...)

And other more exotic pets(scorpion, snakes, Alpacas etc..) which I hope as I add more content to my blog I will get to cover soon!

Now if we look closely, compared to when people first started to keep pets as companions in the beginning, we have really come a long way in terms of variety to what we will consider as pets... naturally not all pets will do the same things, as I've mentioned in the beginning while some of us may look in a pet for qualities such as loyalty and playfulness, others may own pets just for the sake of display or preference. Nevertheless, the one thing they all share in common is that with any pet we will always have the companionship thus it is also any owners duty to provide proper care for them.
