A New Addition to the Family

My usual routine in the morning before going to work is to read my personal/work mails and browse my Facebook account. I was surprised to see a photo of my niece holding a very cute dog whom at that time has no name yet. It was a cavoodle dog, mix breed of King Charles Spaniel and mini poodle. He was only 6 weeks old and her mom bought it at the dog shop.

They named it Prince and now, he is the new addition to my sister’s family. I know he’ll be spoiled and I learned that he’s been sleeping at my sister’s bed at the moment as it was too cold in their place right now. Wintertime is coming so putting him on his bed alone will only make him cry. Ahhh.. poor doggie. I hope they’ll love and take care of that dog like what I’m doing with my own baby dog Sophie. I’m sure they’ll become pet lovers now that Prince is in their home.

Initially, my sister doesn’t want to get a dog because her son is allergic to animal’s fur but she changed her mind. With their new spacious house, Prince will have a big space to run around. I was even more surprised when I learned that my brother-in-law was crazy about the dog and his project of buying a billiard table and other billiards supplies for his recreation area is put on hold bec. he found Prince to be a good companion.

Pet Insurance

Pet insurance is something you will need to decide on for your pet. Many people see the benefits of it, while others think it is a waste of time. A lot of people view their pets as members of the family, so they have no second thoughts about getting insurance for their pet.

If you are constantly taking your pet to the veterinarian for medical problems or issues, you may want to invest in pet insurance. This will help defray some of the costs you are obtaining. Insurance also helps if there is an emergency, so you won't end up paying thousands of dollars for the emergency surgery your pet had to have.

Some insurance policies now have all inclusive services, which comes in handy if you are at the vet often. If you only bring your pet in once or twice a year, then it may not be worth it to pay the premiums on the insurance. However, as your pet gets older, more medical problems may arise which would then make the pet insurance a handy thing.

Having pet insurance will also give you peace of mind. If you have pet insurance and the bills are racking up from an illness your pet has had, you can be assured that at least some of it will be paid by the insurance company.

The way the insurance works is that in most cases you will go to the veterinarian like normal. You will then pay your vet when you leave the office. With your receipt, you will take that and submit it to the pet insurance company who will then issue you a check for the amount they will cover. It is a simple process and well worth it so that you can rest easy at night in case something happens to your pet.
