If only it is that easy to have pet dogs here. Not only are they expensive, you have to pay taxes and also have the responsibility to regulary walk them. We cannot afford such additional expenses yet. And if you add the different pet care paraphernalia like bed for pet, leash, coats, cage, toys, etc., I can say that it is not yet time. Aside from the inability to afford it financially, we also cannot afford it time-wise. It is just too much work for now since I am busy working on my Master Thesis. Instead of taking care of a pet, I would rather spend my time at home taking care of my family and our household.
I know that there will be a time for everything. The time to care for pets will just come.
