There are many important things when it comes to making a couple of decision and getting a pet is surely one of them. Of course, it may seem that there is nothing better to prove your intentions than to get a pet for both of you. It is like having a baby prior to an actual child.

But despite the list of pros, there are things to consider too.

Once you are sure that you are able to deal with all of them, then we are happy for you, and we can congratulate you on another important step in your life.
