    my oldest would absolutely love a dog.. she's 7.
    dd2 has allergies and needs further testing prior to bringing any animal home.

    i also have enough on my plate with 4 kids under 7, and 1 still in nappies & a hubby who is more like a 5th child.. i seriously dont need to pick up after anyone else lol
    but it will happen one day

    I kinda think they are missing out.I love my putty,she is my furry daughter but i understand not everybody can have a pet and some people aren't into animals.

    I would feel lost without her though...

    I don't think they're weird... Just different to dh and I. We adore our animals, and dd has inherited our genes. We have a dog , who sadly is very old now. A hand reared budgie 2 wieros, 3 fish and will soon be getting a baby bunny....
    I do understand why ppl don't have them... I'd much rather someone not have a pet than have one and not look after it.

    I'd sort of prefer that people who can't/don't want to have pets and all of the responsibility that go with them, just remain petless.

    We've ended up with so many unwanted/abandoned pets. Gives me the schnitzels.

    It took about 4 years to commit to a pet other than a fish after the move to this house

    People without pets - all I think is total freedom.

    I love my furry babies but the responsibility is massive. We don't go on long holidays anymore. Have to be home certain times to feed them, walk them - The list goes on as much as I wouldn't change a thing, life was more carefree before we got them.

    We've been away for 2 weeks or more before He comes with us! He's very transportable like that

    I am going to try and hold out as long as is humanly possible! Because it IS a feeling of freedom almost - and although I am yearning for an animal to care for and for my children to grow up with right now, I know this freedom is a blessing and once I get a pet there's no turning back and I'll be longing for these pet free days

    I am looking at a free range lizard or perhaps some chickens as a middle ground.

    Definitely no puppy in the next 6-12 months I hope. Though I have been thinking about the perfect doggy for us

    we dont' have any pets. My husband is allergic to cats and was attacked by a dog and isn't comfortable with them. I don't feel like I am missing out on anything.
