I read some articles during I learned a lesson on Puzzle English today. This article was about "rent a friend" .
I've never heard about this before. It ( I'm not sure how I should begin this sentence) tells us about pet shop in Japan. This is a very popular place. About 60 people visit it and 'rent a friend "every week . There are about 600 different animals. They have dogs, cats, rabbits, parrots, hamsters, rat and mouse , turtles, and even snakes!
The manager of this shop tells, that the dogs are more popular, however children very like kittens too. The cats have a long bushy tail, children like watching and playing with it.
To be honest I don't have good thoughts about this shops. "Rent a friend" - really?!
It's not a good idea. Animals are alive, they have feeling and emotions. We can't take them and after we had good time trow them away. Even if you call it " rent a friend".
We must be more responsible for them. They're really good friends for us. I'd read a good phrases about relationship between us (animals and people) in my own language, I try to describe this meaning:
The pats for us are only one of a page in our life, we're a whole life for them.
P. S this is my first dog. I loved her so much!🙏
