Python Introducing Dictionaries Iterating and Packing with Dictionaries Iterating Over Dictionaries

How do you write the a for loop that iterates over the provided dictionary.

The body of the loop should have two print statements: one to print the key and one to print the value of the current item

iterating_dictionaries.py
pets = {'name':'Ernie', 'animal':'dog', 'breed':'Pug', 'age':2}
for item in pets:
    print(item)
    print(pets.item())

There are actually several ways to accomplish this objective, and you're getting close to one potential alternative. But even though the instructions don't mention it, this challenge specifically wants you to use the ".items()" method in your loop iterable.

The advantage to that approach is that it will return both the key and value at the same time, making both "print" statements very simple.
