Ironically, I’ve done a post on a theme like this in the past but I can’t recall where it is. (It’s been a long time – at least I remember that much.) So here we are again.
What are some things you remember regarding pet care, ownership, feeding, etc. from years gone by? I’ll start:
When I was a kid, I remember all of us in the neighborhood knowing that when the GSD at the end of the street was out, we had to get off our bikes and walk – not run. It was our responsibility to keep from getting bitten and the general sentiment among parents was that if a kid got bit by a neighborhood dog, it was our fault and we needed to tell what we did that resulted in the bite. Bites were very rare (I can only remember one – mine!) but certainly nobody sued anyone and no breeds got banned.
