According to a recent Pet Age article, there are growing concerns that Children May Be Losing Interest In Pet Ownership. The cause? A growing infatuation with electronic gadgets, toys and video games.
Ken Jones, a media producer at Pet Life Radio, is investigating this growing trend and searching for ways to turn this around. In the article, Jones comments that "We all know that pet hobbies that involve the keeping, raising and breeding of animals is good for kids. It teaches responsibility, discipline and encourages learning."
Don't get us wrong. We love computers (we make our living on them) and we think that electronic devices can have a central role in our lives. We can't imagine not working on a laptop, playing on a PlayStation or checking emails on our iPhone. Tech gadgets are here to stay and they make our lives easier, and more fun. That's a good thing.
With that said, we'll log off the computer now and go play with our pets. If you agree, make sure to share this article with your friends on Facebook or Twitter. And then give your pet a belly rub, grab a Dog Leash and go for a nice long walk with your best friend!
