We have a fish named Oswald. He was my "stand in" baby because I had baby fever. I needed something to take care of. 2 years and a baby later, Oswald and my son share a room, and I joke to my fish not to wake his baby brother and joke to my son he needs to help mama feed is brother. I just love that damn fish. SO and I were just saying we are pressing our luck with a 2 year old $2 goldfish from Walmart and how devastated we would be to lose him none the less.
We have a German Shepherd, Reese. She'll be 1 year old on March 10th. We also have another female dog who we take care of (her owner passed away so we took her in). I want a cat, but DH won't let me. lol
