As for me, caring for pets helps children develop a sense of responsibility, since it could make
children aware of the importance of caring about others. I got my first dog, Peggy, when I was 12.
Since she was very little and tender, I had to take care of her and feed her cautiously, in order to let
her grow up healthily. Also, my dad helped me make a list of the things I should do. I was strict
with myself to shoulder the responsibility of walking my dog every morning, though I was
reluctant to get up early, and I even had to take her to the vet when she was sick.
