We don't have any pets as such. Although we briefly had our caterpillars.
They were loved very much and big man was distraught when the butterflies were set free.
Actually I tell I lie we do have one more pet. Patterly. A dog. Here he is doing doggie paddle.
Middle man still insists on pretending to be a dog once in a while. Sometimes he puts a belt round his hand, pretending its a lead. When in character he refuses to answer to his real name. I can tell you now that I felt pretty stupid yelling "Patterly" when we were at the beach earlier this summer. He often reverts to being a dog when he is doing something a little bit naughty. I don't know why, but he perceives that he will get told off less if he is a dog. On a recent trip to the park, Patterly went into the paddling pool fully clothed. He then bounded up to me saying "Woof, I wet, I cold!" Yes he is a very clever dog that can speak too! So for now, we will not be getting any pets as Patterly is a handful. Maybe just some more caterpillars next year.
What pets do you have? Are they hard to look after? Do you have a child that is obsessed with being an animal?
