Cats, dogs, birds, guinea pigs, rare but totally legal imported lizards. Pets are rad. Tell us about yours and why they're the best (or worst).
That cute entanglement of limbs is Alice. We adopted her several years ago from RSCPA after her litter was found abandoned on the side of the road. They were all named after Hunger Games characters and were quickly adopted out across Canberra. Some kept those names, Alice (formerly Katniss) did not.
Now she's a hefty 35 kilo of pure muppet. Everyone always asks what breed she is. I have no idea. I don't dare. It doesn't matter. Alice is our dog, she's adorable and she knows it.
Even now she's demanding my attention. She'll wander into the study, turn around and sit. Staring with great intent at the hallway. Other times she'll come up to me and give me her paw. Or her face.
Alice loves being loved.
How about you? What menagerie does your home play host to? Did you have a pet as a kid you want to reminisce about? Does your neighbour have an awesome dog that you wish was yours?
