We have had threads on pictures of pets, names of pets, and even saving pets. LPSGers love their pets. Do you have pets? If so...how long have you had a pet (or has your pet had you?). I used to have two dogs that were brothers...the first died in 2006 and I lost the second in June of last year. Someone recently kept horses in my back fields for a few months...and they sort of served as big pets that I could play and horse around with, but they have been moved elsewhere. So now I am petless for the first time in my life. Strangely, I'm not sure I want to get a new pet. They involve a commitment of time and care that I'm not sure I can afford right now. Training a young animal takes time, and I have a job that keeps me away from home 9 hours a day. Not having an animal means I can go where I want and when I want without any coordination of pet care. So...no pets here right now. What about you?
