Many people have odd choices in pets. Some individuals love having birds, despite the constant attention and care that some species require. Others may like having creatures that require less maintenance, such as snakes, lizards, and fish.
What kind of family pet did you have as a child? Did you have fun with the cat or dog? Was watching the fish always a nice laid-back activity?
My family has always had dog, big and small. Most recently we had Chihuahua/Dachshund mixes who were extremely playful. One loved chasing people around the yard, another loved to just spend time with the family, and the third would steal the toys of the other two.
A teen from Ohio took spending “quality time” with the dog a little too far. He was caught in his bedroom naked with the family’s pet Dachshund.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, the teen had been caught a year before and was arrested for the same crime. I’m sure that you can use your imagination to fill in the blanks as to what he was doing with the poor little animal.
According to AOL.com, this is the second time the teen has been charged with “cruelty to animals.”
The vet charged with examining the small dog stated: “Depending on the outcome of my exam, the charges against the teen may be far more severe than first given.”
Police are also concerned whether or not this is a sign that the teen may be capable of more crimes against animals or small children. I would venture that he’d most definitely do this again with the same dog or another if left alone with one again.
If you’re going to show your small dog or cat affection, just kiss them on the top of their head.
