When your child begs for a dog or cat and promises to take care of it, Baby Toolkit has a great suggestion:
If your child wants a dog, BEGS for a dog, and you don't want to shoulder the entire responsibility for a pet, test the child's promises to "take care of the dog." Make an agreement. If your child will wake at a specified earlier time and then "walk" the imaginary dog (10 to 20 minutes) every day for 21 days that you will then begin seriously considering getting a pet. I'd make it a month of walking because that's how long it takes to establish a habit.
The same role-playing can go for feeding the pet, changing the litterbox or bird cage liner, freshening their water--any responsibilities you want your child to assume.

Today is grooming day at Super Cool Pets, so we are inspired to find a set of good grooming tools. We like these affordable Gripsoft Grooming Tools which combine an ergonomic (designed for comfort) rubber grip with high quality brushes, combs, rakes, and clippers. About Gripsoft:
Gripsoft worked with groomers and designers to develop a completely new line of grooming tools. They studied the way groomers hold the tool, the movement of the hand and wrist, and the contour of the animal. The result is Gripsoft, for maximizing comfort, for ease of use in all those hard-to-get areas and for maximum durability.
Each Gripsoft grooming tool features finger fitting contours along the handle to increase your comfort control and a soft rubber sheathed handle to give you a non-slip comfortable grip.
Featured in this set are:
Flea Comb: For dogs with curly, flat, wiry, long, medium, and short coats. .
Cat Comb: For use with medium and long haired cats for daily brushing to prevent matting and hairballs.
Shedding Comb: For dogs with curly, flat, long, or medium coats.
Pin Brush: For dogs with curly, flat, wiry, long, medium, and short coats. Use this brush for daily brushing of any but very short coated breeds.
Undercoat Rake: Designed for pets with long-haired coats, which can become matted and knotted.
Dematting Rake: Removes dead, shedding, matted or knotted hair from the innermost layer while leaving outercoat undisturbed.
Slicker Brush: For dogs with curly, flat, wiry, long, and medium coats. Use this brush to remove dead and shedding hair from your dog.
Each tool is availble separately at Only Natural Pet Store, along with additional tool information, PetCareRx and Amazon. Via Ideal Bite.

According to Johns Hopkins Medicine Health Alerts, pets improve our mental and physical health. "Dogs and cats, even a tankful of fish, calm frazzled nerves and ease anxiety and depression, according to research."
One reason is that pets alter our behavior. When they are near, we tend to calm down and speak more slowly and softly. All types of pets offer distractions from the worries of the day, because we naturally shift our attention to them when they are around. Pets also provide an opportunity to touch and stroke another living thing, which has been shown to be of value to our mental and physical health.
