    I have to agree with KLD. These animals are super dedicated and are worth all the trouble. Our two dogs recently had a 4:00 AM intruder up against the wall waiting for the Police to arrive.

    Good luck and enjoy!!!

    wow, sounds like a story to tell. My dog is sleeping in a crate for now, but I'm looking forward to his being reliable enough to be out.

    Sounds like you need a mammal. A cat is very little maintenance; a dog is lots of maintenance. I have both but only my dog can pull me in my wheelchair. It is hard to have a down day when your dog puts her head in your lap and looks up with that "isn't it time for a run" look. We go out for runs of 3 to 5 miles. We go out every day or two. I believe it is very therapeutic to train and bond with a dog and get out into the open air. When you have a dog, you also have a purpose. Like I like to say about my dog, "she needs me to take her out, and I need her to take me around - win/win".

    Check out my Facebook page "Wheelchair Mushing" if you are interested.

    Oh my gosh! You have a fish aquarium...! I was maybe thinking about doing a fish aquarium. Are they a lot of work? What kind of fish might be cool to get? maybe some pet piranhas ahhaha jk

    How much work does a fish tank need?

    Can a person walk into an animal shelter and just basically choose a new cat to take home? (sorry if stupid question)

    If an aquarium interests you, I advise to start small-10gallon or less-and see how out works for you. The outlay and commitment is small. Before doing anything, get on the net and check out some planted tank sites like http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/
    Explore the different levels of complexity and decide where you want to be. I suggest KISS! (keep it simple) My small tank (29g) is very simple. Every 2 weeks I dump in a little FloraPride; every day I feed the fish; I just cleaned the filter for the first time since starting the tank July 2011! I find keeping a tank with growing/live plants as well as fish very soothing and relaxing. I sometimes spend an hour dicking around with my long tweezers and scissors, keeping my garden good. I will see if I can post a picture of rye small one.

    PS: most shelters will vett adopters; they will want to know that you are earnest and able to care for your pet. They may also have an obligatory adoption "donation". And, no, when I adopted (dog), I didn't just walk in! In fact, the driveway was pretty steep and there was a step

    I need coaching with photos! Most times, my iPhone's files are too large and I can't figure out how to make them small. I hoopoe one of the links below will work!
