I love a lot of animals and have a budgie, also a tame blackbird who comes for food when he has chicks.
But I've never liked dogs and wouldnt ever want one. They are a pain to walk, a bind when you go on holiday and make a mess!
but I told him he can't because it might eat my cats!!!! Also I'll be the one who ends up cleaning up it's poo and talking it for walks while he's away - NOPE!!! Not having one!! Unless it's a tiny little baby thing that looks like a cat!!!
