Awww Sushie...My little Dove is my love right now but I would really like to have another Yorkie..

I love all animals. But for the last 100 years I've only had dogs.

Well, not really sure a horse counts ... and I've had lots of different kinds of pets (fox, racoon, skunk, German Shepards, Chihuahuas, fish, birds ...) .

For the best pet - I would have to go with a Female Siberian Husky acquired just after weaning and raised indoors around the family - especially if you have children. Of course - they become so protective of the kids you might have a problem if you want/need to spank them ....

I'd love to be able to cuddle up with one of these..........as long as it was tame cause if it wasn't I'm sure it'd do more than cuddle. I think their gorgeous!

EDIT: For some reason it didn't show it by itself. Anyway click on the white tiger.

If they're that big... I don't know if I'd want to try to tell them where to poo... I'd be a bit afraid of offending them...
