Didn't want to hi-jack Big's thread, especially one on such a somber subject, but people's responses got me to thinking about what kind of pets they have. My family lost two dogs, Sunshine two summers ago and Shadow last summer. We just adopted (two months ago) a pair of greyhounds from a local greyhound rescue - track dogs that were no longer useful and so were slated for death. They are teaming up with a 10 year-old cat and two of the world's largest goldfish.
So - what are your pets - now, past, future?
