Most of which are described to be busy with improving how they look and appear to others. More often highschool students are used to this type of culture in the county. It is rare to hear the news about a 16-year-old student had an IQ that was greater than Einstein. It came as a surprise when the teen was found out to have a higher Intelligence Quotient than the genius Albert Einstein, Billionaire Bill Gates and the famous Professor Stephen Hawking.

Who among us doesn’t love pets, especially when it’s as cute as a pet dog? It is said that dogs are man’s best friend a reason why most of the household have a dog in their family. They would treat the said pets as their own. Somehow, families would prefer to have a pet dog to guard their homes from burglars and to have someone to play with.
Owning a dog in a family is also teaching the children at home to be responsible by taking care of their pets. Often times, there is a tendency where these types of pets may be lost out of nowhere while taking a stroll or probably might run outside the families backyard and taken by bystanders. There is also a huge possibility that the dogs will be one of the stray dogs roaming around the streets without any owners taking responsibility of having them.
Meanwhile, the government of England has proposed a plan to trace and identify and even classify the dogs or any pet a family or an individual owns. Due April 2016, the animals in England should have a micro chip with them.
This is intended to minimize the number of many stray pets. This will be called as part of the Animal Welfare’s Act and the citizens in England should comply with it or would be given a fine amounting to £500. This is a genuine plan to track down the pets because the micro chip would include the information about the owner including his or her contact details. The size of the micro chip would probably be like a piece of rice granules that would be enclosed with a special code that would determine the owner of the pet.
