Might Become a Puppy Parent Today

Post  Ellen-Natalie on Sat Jul 19, 2014 8:11 am

My husband and I have wanted a pet dog since before we were married - and six years later, we FINALLY live in a place that allows pets! Turns out that was the easy part. We've since been looking at shelters, rescues, and our budget to find the right dog for our family. We've put down a deposit with our landlord, been interviewed by rescues, fallen in love and had our hearts broken with several sweet dogs. If everything goes well today, we'll be bringing home a new member of our family!

I haven't been a pet caregiver in over a decade. I'm kind of freaking out ^^;

Ms. Natalie, knowing you, you'll make an excellent parent to some lucky pet.

Next you'll need a couple of cats, some fish, a pair of turtles, a family of rats and an iguana (just to get started). Razz

That actually sounds a lot like my childhood - except with birds and a bat instead of rats and an iguana. ^^;
Thanks for your kind words - today we brought home Amber! She still seems timid and nervous in her new home, but at least she's relaxing enough to eat and sleep.

All together now!

DAAAAAaaaaaaawwwwww......!!!

*waits for Amber's guest appearance in the comic* Wink

Also, how the heck do you keep a bat as a pet? Don't they need frightful amounts of space to fly/feed? Also, pet bat = awesome! Shocked

My Dad often commuted across the desert for his work - he often stopped to bring home 'catch and release' pets for us. We only kept the bat for a short time, but he was indeed awesome.

Probably doesn't qualify as "pet bats" but giving them a place to hang out (whee! bat-pun!) is pretty easy.

Check it out! Bat-house!

Aw, Amber's adorable! She's so little and fluffy; I just wanna pick her up and cradle and cuddle her! Also, your childhood sounds awesome.
