Some of us share our homes with numerous creatures, for others human companions are enough. I was put off by Tina Fey sharing how she didn't like animals in BossyPants. I've always had critters, strictly a cat lover for many years...then my Sophie came into the family, an AmStaff afraid of her own shadow. Callie came a few years later. He's an American Bulldog poster boy, fearless and muscle bound...and a lap dog...with an embarrassing secret, he has a growl that clears the street...but his bark sounds like a hoarse cocker spaniel "arooo arooo I'll eat your babies arooo". He lets Sophie do the serious barking. We also have five housecats that rule the roost and my daughters rats in their split level cage. What pets does everyone else have?
