I don't like things that crawl, hop, or slither. Especially slither. My girls have had pets that included iguanas, snakes, rats, a tarantula (for one night), hamsters, birds, and a turtle as well as cats and dogs. My favorite was fish--they were non-threatening and stayed put. Now that my girls are grown up with their own homes and kids, their pets are limited to dogs and cats. So much for nature.
This image reminded me of all those "fun" animals and reptiles that graced my home over the years. Now we only have a dog. It is my daughter's; we have been "babysitting it since she went off to college. She is now in her third year of teaching. I guess Roxy is our dog now.
Have a great week!
