Isn't animal de companie too big for "pet"?

    Romanian doesn't have a single word for pet :)

    In North American Romanian, we call them "un pet".

      Ha-ha, it is worthwhile to mention that un pet is used in Romanian for a plastic bottle :)

      Yo, I'm a dog using Duolingo and this sentence doesn't apply to me

      Why is this a sentence we need to learn? When does anyone say this in a real-use case?

        Dana889101, if you learn only for real use-cases, you will not understand cartoons, movies and books :)
