We have spiders like that here Skittle. We also have black widows. I kill the black widows because they are like the brown recluse. I don't think of them as pets though. I draw a line at insects. My grandson and I watched a walking stick in the garden for a while, but didn't keep him.

PF--you're in denial--you really do want a dog, so you take Roe on Fridays to get your dog fix.

I would believe that if her Mom didn't call me and ask if I could take her for a few hours.

Besides, I would not make my cats miserable by bringing another cat OR dog into our home right now. not enough space.

Oh!Oh!Oh! Just "our" kind of doggie! And, yes, in the couple of years between dogs, we "adopted" a friend's dog and they could bring her over when they needed a "sitter". We'd still take her, but they claim she is mean to other dogs. I don't think it would be a problem, we'd take her anyway. Her name is Stella, and don't you just love the idea of walking outside and yelling, "Stella! Stella!"

Nicer than standing outside and yelling "Roe, Roe Roe..." and someone chimes in "your boat!"

She is a blast, still only about 5 pounds, 3-4 months old now.

Sounds like something I'd sing out if I heard it! Is she a Jack Russell? If so, how in the heck old is your Mom? They are a challenge!

I had a cat who was a bit psycho. I was considering calling her Psycho. A friend pointed out that I didn't want to be wandering the alleys yelling, "Psycho!" on moving day.
