    When it comes to pets, which pet is your #1 choice and why??

    Personally, if I could afford it, I would have a HUGE saltwater aquarium built into one of my bedroom walls! So freakin' gorgeous to stare at all day.....

    Three German Shepherds 1981



    I grew up with female German Shephards so I have a soft spot for them. Very loyal and intelligent dogs. Now I am not sure I would have three in my life at the same time, that is a lot of work. One day when we have a house I will seriously think about getting a dog or two.

    My little green-cheeked conure keeps me company. She keeps the cat in line, watches imperiously to make sure I do all my household chores, samples all my food to make sure I'm eating an approved healthy diet, approves visitors and boyfriends, shrieks at neighborhood kids, and gently reminds me when it's time to go to bed, if the music's too loud, and when to get up. And if I ever get too uppity, she poops on me to keep me grounded.

    I would like to have a huge saltwater aquarium and a huge freshwater aquarium, filled with plants and fish.

    I have never had a saltwater one, but I used to have a few freshwater ones. And yes you could stare at them all day. Not too easy keep a saltwater one though. they take alot of maintenance, but worth it. It is a amazing sight.

    While growing up I had all kinds of family pets including Dogs, Cats, birds, Guinea pigs, squirrels and fish (salt and freshwater)

    Each has it's own appeal, but I really love dogs for their loyalty and sensitively to your moods.... (hmmm I also love that in a BF)

    Cats when you DO win their affection are also wonderful, faithful companions.
    When I was a kid (13-14) I had a favorite huge black and White kitty named Tinkerbell (HEY I didn't name him!) that followed me everywhere, would sleep on my bed until I was asleep and return just before wake up time and would purr and rub against me to tell about his affection. When vacationing about 50 miles away on an Island, my family could not find him when we left for home... I was devastated and cried looking for that favorite pet. One week later, a very hungry. skinny black and white kitty showed up at our door... I have no idea how he got home but I was so happy!

    I have 3 dogs. 2 cats and some Aussie parrots. One comes into my bathroom while I shower, and wolf whistles at me.

    Love dogs the best. have a great pick of one of my dogs just loves one of the cats, and they wrestle all the time. have some great pictures of them together. One may be printed in an American calender for 2009, because I sent a picture off of the dog and cat wrestling.

    Definitely dogs, as it was stated before, they give you unconditional love and are always there for you. They seem to be able to sense when something is wrong or that you are not feeling well. All they want to do is be with you and snuggle with you. I love our dogs. There isn't a day that they don't make me laugh.

    Oh, Mikey-poo, I tried, but my picture file was corrupted. Here's one I found online, though my little Dino (that's her name, too) is much cuter than this one. And really...lizards?? Snakes??? Do I seem that...cold-blooded? icon_wink.gif

    for me dogs (goldens), but living in a condo it is easier to have cats. My cat (Mommy) is a 14 year gray cat who follows me around the condo, puring, sitting next to me or my feet.

    No Z, you don't seem that cold blooded, but I didn't think you were into birds either icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    Do you get the joke icon_question.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    Sorry couldn't resist.

    Anyway, their nice birds. I'd love to have one. Maybe some day.

    Nice combination of breeds Hoodiestud.

    I saw a german shephard/rotweiller female puppy this summer that was adorable. I wanted to adopt it on the spot.

    Well, I'm more of a cat guy than a dog guy. The independence, longevity, and lack of slobber are all big factors in that. My childhood cat, who died this past year at the age of 19, and who never weighed more than 5 pounds:
