Who has a pet in here? A dog? A cat? Anything? Anyone got a really weird pet? Anyone got any designs on getting a strange pet?
Today on off topic, let’s talk about pets.
When I was growing up in Scotland my parents had a lot of dogs. At one point we had eight goddamn dogs. German Short-Haired Pointers It was pretty intense. Walking them was a nightmare and they were really, really noisy. My parents used to breed them, so at times we could have eight dogs and a litter of puppies in the house. I’ve actually delivered puppies into this world. Intense.
You’d think these kind of experiences would put me off pets for life, but strangely, ever since I left home, I’ve always wanted to get a dog. Not eight dogs. Just one. Maybe a beagle?
Now that I’ve moved out of my apartment into a house, it’s a possibility. I want my son to grow up having a dog around. I have this weird little idea about them running around the house, sharing adorable adventures together.
Anyway — what’s your experience with pets.
