Probably none of these – john seems to be leaning towards a dog. Instead of a parakeet.
Which is silly, because, as everyone knows, parakeets are as good as or even better than dogs.
Why parakeets are better than dogs:
Their poops are smaller and easier to clean up
You’ll never see them pulling a “Toby”
They are cheaper (food, toys, care) than a dog
You don’t need to walk them
They bathe themselves
They will vote for you in important C&R elections
They don’t slobber all over you when you kiss them
They won’t hump your leg
They don’t have bad breath
They sing along to the radio with you
They love youtube
They can fly
They can talk (even though it’s creepy)
They get along well with rabbits
If john does get a dog,
he needs to decide on a breed.
He recently asked for input on his facebook question of the day.
The kid suggested a greyhound – but are greyhounds and rabbits a good mix?
Tam suggested a Cavalier King Charles spaniel…
Justin didn’t weigh in, but I’m sure he would suggest a Siberian Husky.
David P. suggested a large dog,
while Polt would go for a lap dog. Maybe a poodle, like Mama Polt’s Angel.
I am partial to Shiba Inus.
Or collies. You never know when you might fall down a well.
josh said to get a nice dog.
In one of my favorite Kids In the Hall bits, Bruce McCulloch sings the praises of a terrier:
So many choices!
So, john, if you do end up with a dog, I’m sure the lucky pooch you choose will be a great addition to your life and will provide you with lots of love, joy and companionship. Just don’t put a bandanna on it.
