Having a pet of your own is one of life's greatest pleasures.A pet gives us love and affection that we so deeply desire in our lives.Among pets the most popular is the dog.Dog has been man's best friend for ages and there is no animal which is as faithful and sincere as a dog.
I have a pet dog named Rocky.It belongs to the Dobermann Pinscher breed. It is black in colour with a shade of golden fur on its neck and chest.It was only 1 month old when Dad brought it home.The first time I saw it , I was just thrilled with joy.It looked like a soft black ball and was so cute.The bonding that developed there has since then,continued unbroken.
Slowly but steadily ,Rocky grew in confidence and came to be a part of our family.It plays with me and accompanies me in my morning walks.The very sight of it's bright eyes and wagging tail brightens up my day.Despite being playful and friendly , it is very obedient and takes my instructions without any complaints.I have taught it certain things and he has proved to be a quick learner.Also it is a very fierce customer when it comes to guarding the house.The sight of a stranger at night brings out the soldier in Rocky and he starts barking ferociously, to scare him away.
Rocky is allowed entry into our home, but it never jumps on the sofa, or destroy anything.It was wonderful toilet habits and loves to be bathed and groomed regularly.He normally eats vegetarian food but also loves fish. Once a week, I feed him meat.He also relishes bread , biscuits and cakes.He loves playing with the ball and the both of us spend a lot of time during the vacations, playing with my bat and ball.
Rocky's presence adds meaning to my life.It has not only given me a friend to be cared by and to care for, but also has made me a more responsible and mature individual.But I know that a dog's life span is very short, so very soon it would have to leave me .Yet I keep praying to God to let it be with me forever.
