There is this one pet
that doesn't cost a lot of money or your time..... that's right. A Rock!A pet rock.
It's Great because it requires no work. You don't need your parent's permission to get one.
Makes a nice paperweight. They don't drop fur or feathers all over the place and, of course, don't eat,
bite or poop. and doesn't complain at all.
It's not so good because it just sits there and don't want to talk.
The best part, they
don't have any requirements and come free of cost. All we have to do is
look by the side of the road.
Pet Rocks are ideal for both the inexperienced pet owner and for those who are too busy to
spend a lot of time on pet care.
When you have learned a little on training and maintaining them you could
easily add to your pocket money by selling them to friends and relatives
or your local shops.
How to select your Pet Rock
As with the selection of any pet, you will need to know exactly what you want from your pet
Rock. you might want to carry around with you to keep you company and show
off or, you may want a Rock to guard your house when you are not home.
So, in this case, the Guard Rock needs to be quite large and fierce
looking and will need quite a large space to live in. Guard Rocks also
like to sit out in the front garden watching the world go by while smaller
Pet Rocks love to live on or near the computer.

will have a different personality. Take your your time and choose the

Let your imagination flow while you decorate your Pet Rock with paint,
fur, feathers or almost any other available stuff. Make it look nice.
A Guard Rock, should be of waterproof materials and glue, incase you would
like to sit out in the front garden and soak in the sun together.

for it ready at hand.
Make your pet rock listen to you.
All you need to do is.................ask them to "Sit" and
that's about it.
Make it firm but deliver in a caring tone.
You should take your pet for a long walk at least once a week Unless you
have a very large Guard Rock .
Avoid giving your pet rocks (as with any other animals) chocolate or
sweets and cakes as it will make them sick.
Share your family of Pet rocks with others.......for a price of course!
Once you have mastered the decoration and training of Pet Rocks you may
wish to make a little business of them.
Pet Rocks can be sold to friends and relatives or you can even get them
sold by some of your local shops.
you can talk to pet shops, novelty shops and newsagents. if you want
them in the shops.
You will find it easier to get shops to take them if you offer the Pet
Rocks on a consignment basis. That is, where the shop displays them and
pays you as each is sold.
