I want a dog.
I want a dog.

A dog I can play with, this is my one wish,
and that's why I want a dog.

I want a dog.
I want a dog.

A dog that will lick my face,
we'll run and laugh and chase,
and that's why I want a dog.

I'll teach him to do some tricks,
like sit and fetching sticks,
and that's why I want a dog.

I want a puppy,
one who will love me,
I want a puppy of my very very own.

A dog I can cuddle,
he won't be trouble,
and that's why I want a dog.

one who will love me,
I want a puppy of my very very own.

For parents
Children raised in a house with two or more dogs or cats during the first year of life may be less likely to develop allergic diseases as compared with children raised without pets, according to a study supported by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. Read a summary of the study or the full article, which was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
For kids

It’s not fur, hair, or feathers that cause people to be allergic to their pets! Instead, proteins from pet skin or in your pet’s spit are often the reason. If you or a family member is allergic to Fido or Tabby, there are ways to help control the worst effects.
