Vivi's Bridge Camera Challenge: Pet Photography



Did you know that living with a pet is good for you?

Consider these facts:
  • Pet owners have lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels and in general, this puts them at a reduced risk for heart disease.
  • Pet owners report fewer headaches, fewer bouts of indigestion and less difficulty sleeping.
  • Dog owners in particular, exercise more though you can certainly get exercise playing with an energetic cat or kitten.
  • Pets help safeguard against depression or loneliness.
  • Pets actually help improve social skills.
  • For children, owing a pet improves their self esteem - someone who loves them unconditionally and wants their undivided attention.
  • Pets reduce the number of visits to a doctor by elderly patients
  • Pets help to ease loss. An older person whose spouse has died is less likely to experience deterioration in health if he or she is attached to a pet.
  • Your pet may just get you into heaven.

I can't remember a point in our life without a house pet. We always have a cat at home, and at least 2 dogs plus occasional piglets my mom would bring  home...Smiley (We used to have a piggery). I can even remember literally sleeping with our pigs whenever our mommy pig will give birth! I take turns with my brother helping our mom to assist in the birthing process. The piglets are so cute! I remember petting 2 with my brothers when they grew up and ready to be sold, we hated our mom for a week! and never petted a piglet again.Smiley  

I have my own house now and planning to have my very own pet!! A cute puppy sounds good... can't wait!

Enjoy photos I have taken of  pets we have at home and from neighbors/ friends!  















my nephews and niece with their pets!

  4. We also had loads of pets when I was growing up. We had several dogs and cats, some of which were adopted (ie askal). We also had cows, pigs, and goats! Provincial life talaga :D Haha here in Manila, we only have one dog. My boyfriend, who used to live alone, adopted 2 cats from the cat shelter and they've made him very happy talaga! Love your photos, Vivi! Scary lang the iguana but the cats and dogs are cute hehehe I'm a bit scared of birds and hamsters too :P

  8. Wow...this poist has completely changed my perspective about having a pet. We do have cats at home but I seldom play with them. I'm such a terror to them sometimes. But if ever I will own a pet, I go for fish or cat only, I think having bird in a cage seem like pretty sad.

  9. we've two dogs at home, I was totally against having them at first because I hate furry animals but they have a way of getting under your skin, and I say that in a positive way, now I totally adore those two mini pinchers, nakakatanggal sila ng pagod and they're like babies, they make me smile with their tricks.:)

  10. Wow, ang ganda ng first picture..

    I'm a pet lover.. I have 5 dogs at home. Medyo magulo lang minsan, lalo na pag nag-aaway sila.. hehe.. Pero ayos lang. Dogs fight, then they become friends again. Though I really want to have a cat, hindi ko rin magawa. Cat-killers and mga aso ko.. :p

  15. It's a general observation that having a pet to own is getting into heavenly happiness. Pets are not rational being. They're all under your care.

  30. Recent numbers show that 63% of US households own a pet - that's 71.1 million homes and families with dogs, cats, iguanas, parakeets, fish, ferrets, potbellied pigs, etc, etc., Taking care of a pet is tougher than taking care of an infant, since our pets can't speak. Hence, making sure your pet is safe and happy when you leave it alone at home should be a priority for all pet owners. One of the simplest ways of watching over a pet remotely is by using some sort of webcam software like GotoCamera that is easily available online these days. Thanks to technology and some very smart people who are working on making things easier for us, you can now use your basic webcam to monitor your pets while you're away from them.
