As a child I had a hamster, birds and a dog. My daughter has had cats and fish. My mother in law has a dog. Her dog is a Bichon Poodle mix.
I am not a pet person. I have nothing against animals and I find them cute. I just am to lazy to want to take care of them.
I like the kind of pet that sits in a cage. Then again, I’d have to clean that cage too. Oh well, guess I’d choose no pet then.
