    Should we post pics of our pets or will that open the floodgates? Here's my Nellie Dog-Dog  in his brand new super buggy bed I got this for him because I can't take him walkies using my seat walker but I can use this buggy to help me walk, he walks beside me off lead can go in it when he gets tired on the way home

    A bit of a difference between a parrot and a Rottweiler @Strawberry1 :p Can I ask what makes you choose these two?  :)

    @L_Volunteer She is a weird dog! Liked sitting in that bush from being a pup. 

    @Emille She is full of character! Can be sweet if I have treats, haha

    I do not have pets. I like watching friends pets. I do not want to own a pet.

    It is so interesting reading about all the pets and longed for pets here! I am not allowed pets in my private rented flat but if I was and thought I could cope (debatable now), I would have a medium sized dog. I would probably have a Staffordshire bull terrier as I think they are a lovely, kind breed. My dog of dreams would be an English bull terrier (love all dogs but especially the bully breeds!). I had one years ago, and he was gorgeous but another would be too much for me to handle now as they are very strong dogs. I am lucky in that both my daughters whom I see regularly (if not daily as they do so much for me) have dogs, including a dear old staffy who is my especial darling! So I still get my canine ‘fix’!

    I'm so sorry to hear that @Ashton05 :(

    @gtks They are a lot of work, it's great when you can give them back!

    @Shellyjay I'm so sorry :( So young too. 

    @Amalegra Glad you get your canine fix! :D My cousin had a Staffordshire bull terrier and I love them too, such a sweet breed but strong like you say! He walked me 😂
