Recently, we’ve been contemplating adopting a dog for our daughter, who loves dogs. The problem is that we already have two cats (and a turtle), and we are definitely cat people. My husband and I had dogs all throughout our lives, along with cats, lizards, gerbils, ferrets, and just about any other pet a person could ever have (within legal limits). He even had birds, though I always had a problem with that, since I think birds should be free to fly. I know that I wouldn’t want to live in a cage if I had wings.
