Ahhh how about common sense? maybe one should pass a test before they get a pet or better yet before they have children. Too many morons out there that have children and pets and either neglect them or incapable of raising them. Don't like to pick up your dog poop from the park you walk it in then don't have a dog. Don't like to watch your kids so you drop them off at the pool for the life guards to watch then don't have kids. Just some examples of questions one should answer beforehand

and how about, if you don't plan to include your dog in your away from home activity, do not take them with you and leave them in your hot car!
