How about husbands?   LOL

My pet is Colonel, the biggest German Shepard I have ever had.  He is mostly black, has a huge head, and weighs around 103 pounds.  At least he did the last time I took him to the vet.  He is spoiled, but I love him anyway.  Probably love him more then I love Jim.  At least that is what Jim says to me.  LOL

Here is Kjell and Colonel. Kjell used to walk every evening and come by and get Colonel. They are the best of friends.

I have a fox or rat terrier.
He is around 10 years old and since I have had him just a year and a half.....don't know for sure.
But, Doctor Black thinks he is this.

I have had lots of cats and dogs.........but this dog doesn't like cats and I don't think I will get a second one.
Scooter is just plenty.

Kind of fills in for a male partner. Snores and when I let him on bed, hogs the whole thing.
He does get me up and out for exercise........one very nice thing is that I can put him outside when he ticks me off.

He was very glad to see me yesterday when I picked him up.
Today, I want to make a difference.
Here I am Lord, use me!

I'm thinking it must be either
1. a favorite vehicle
2. a pet rock
3. a pet spider
4. Janet's husband Jim

Marty used to name his vehicles & talk to and about them like pets.  A spider would last just long enough for me to find a big cowboy boot to smash it with, and I never thought too much about the pet rock fad.  Husbands now, require a lot of care & feeding and definitely should qualify as "other".

How about hamsters, gerbils and whistle pigs, rabbits and chinchillas or ferrets.
