Why Mia Should Have A Corgi

By Mia Calvino

Corgis, the cutest dogs to ever exist, make for the perfect pet. The perfect pet needs a perfect pet owner, a great corgi owner would be me, Mia Calvino. A corgi and I together would be the best of friends and make each other’s lives more enjoyable. I am sometimes sad or lonely, owning a corgi would be the perfect solution to both of those problems.

When humans interact with dogs even if it’s just for a short period of time, a hormone in the brain is produced. This hormone, oxytocin, increases feelings of relaxation, trust, and empathy while reducing stress and anxiety. Coming home from school or work can cause stress and loss of motivation to do homework and have a negative impact on a person’s mood. If I came home to a fluffy and friendly corgi, I would be much happier and my stress would be reduced allowing me to feel more motivated to get work done.

Buying, supporting, and taking care of a dog throughout its life can be pricey. Corgi’s typically cost around 2,000 dollars, vet bills every month after insurance cost 240 dollars, and food and treats cost 80 dollars every 2 to 3 months. I make between 250 and 450 dollars a week depending on how much I work, and have about 8,000 dollars in savings. This means I have enough money saved to not only purchase the dog, but to also get it a veterinarian and insurance, and make enough money every month to make sure the dog will have plenty of food, the comfiest bed, and all the dog toys in the world.

Caring for a pet is a lot of work and a big responsibility. I walk my neighbor’s dog everyday after school and take care of her cat and dog when her family goes away. This proves that I am responsible enough and have the experience to care for a corgi. I will be able to take the corgi on walks and spend time outside, keep it well fed and hydrated, and most importantly make sure it is always happy and healthy.
