The article presents the opposing views of two children on the issue of whether people should be allowed to rent pups and other pets. Information is offered on FlexPet, a company that lets people rent dogs for a few hours or a few days at a time. Hannah Nett thinks that such rental plans pets are wrong because they trade dogs around like baseball cards. Paul O'Neal disagrees, saying that people should be allowed to rent pets because they may need to try out a pet before they buy one.
