Any of you out their pet lovers? I find it quite hard to convince people that owning a pet is a good idea or even taking away their apprehensions of owning a pet. Needless to say I am thinking about getting a toy dog (mini-dog) will probably be it’s name. Other than being a great size aka mini, a 1-2 lb dog cannot shed that much, can be in the house all day (which will seem bigger than your yard), and the classic “he doesn’t eat very much, can we keep him?” attitude. What are some high or low points of animal ownership? Dog or Cat person? Do you like giant, regular, or small animals?
