Because young people are busy with work, more and more old people are starting to keep dogs to relieve their loneliness. They have always been very doting on their dogs, even treating them as their own children.
The owner in this story has two puppies, but as he keeps them, they have undergone earth-shaking changes. I have to say that this is a big challenge for the elderly!
A couple in Japan feels a little lonely because they live together all year round. So, at the suggestion of his children, the old man went to a pet store and bought two puppies to raise. At first, the store said that these two dogs would grow very big in the future. The old man didn’t think much about it and thought they would be as big as Akita dogs at most.
But as they grow day by day, they have completely changed. In just a few months, they have grown to 150 pounds. Did they grow up eating pig feed? It looks taller than a person. Facing such tall dogs, the old man was already beyond his capabilities and could not hold them at all!
Actually, these two dogs are white bear dogs, which are giant dogs. The old man didn't understand it at first. If he had known that they would grow so big, he might not have raised them. After all, it is still suitable for the elderly to raise small dogs.
Despite this, the couple is very gentle with the dogs and treats them as a family, and the dogsThe dog is also very close to them, and often even acts coquettishly to the old man: What a heavy burden!
As soon as the old man entered the house, two dogs came forward to greet him. One of the dogs had its two front paws on the old man's shoulders, as if coquettishly begging for a hug, and the old man could only stroke it gently. After all, it was so big that it was not easy to hold it.
Vet Xiao Ming said that raising a dog to relieve loneliness is a good thing, but it is not recommended to raise a giant dog. After all, the elderly have limited energy. Giant dogs like these are generally very energetic and require a lot of their energy every day.
Although the elderly are accompanied by dogs, they cannot replace the company of their children. As a child, you should still try your best to take time to visit them as much as possible. Don't wait until the elderly are gone and then regret not spending more time with your parents.
Veterinarian Xiao Ming’s popular science:
White Bear Dogs have always been calm and docile, very loyal to their owners, obey their orders, have strong guarding abilities, and are more suitable for family breeding. However, white bear dogs are relatively large, so they need to ensure a certain amount of exercise. As a poop shoveler, you must ensure that they get 1 hour of exercise every day.
Secondly, they have a great effect on athletes. White Bear dogs love to pull carts and are good at moving on soft snow, so they are very suitable as guides in sled teams.
