Bringing up a baby 
                                                                                                              By Rosa Canina
 
 
 
Alana Diller has a lot in common with her neighbor Halan Brown. Alana works full time, and  does Haley .
Alana has just hired a sitter for her baby. Haley  too. And they´re both careful parents. Alana interviewed a lot of people before deciding on the best person for the job. So  Haley.
There´s one important difference, however. Alana´s Brenda is a human baby, Haley´s Agne isn´t. Agne is great Dane, a dog the size of a small Pony. 
 
Haley says, "I feel very responsible for Agnes. It´s like having a child. Alana can´t leave her baby alone for ten hours every day, and   can I. Both brenda and Agnes need human contact and care during the day".
Jack Austin, owner of PetCare, agrees. "Human children are social creatures, and so  pets, especially dogs. Being alone is painful for them and bad for their health too".
  "Most of us think of our pets as our babies". Continued Austin. "My friends who are parents don´t mind buying the best food for their babies and I don´t . They want their kids to go to the best schools, and so  I".
Schools? aren´t we carrying this comparison a little too far? "not at all", says  Austin. "our puppy kindergarten performs the same service for dogs that human kindergarden does for children. A five-year-old child will need to learn about his or her  environment, and so  a puppy. A child will need to develop social skills, and a puppy will ". Austin´s company even offers play dates so that shy dogs can make new friends.
 "A lot of my friends think it´s silly", lauhed Haley, "but I . I have my social contacs, and  Agnes. The peace of mind is worth the expense".
