Looks to me like an excuse to buy more lizard lights for the grow room!

I used to have snakes and all sorts of odd animals when I was a kid. Now I weigh them against the fact that they curtail my personal freedom.

I'll have dogs and maybe even cats when I retire, but not before then. They just take up too much time.

Barrie, as it looks u have had several heartbreaks too...

once they come into your life ,they are family..loose a family member it hurts and takes a little piece of u with it..
Wendy died in '98..she is buried here..she was a Yorkie
Shebba was born Nov 98 and once weaned I got her. my son gave her to me...she was going on 14..long life for a GSD.
Midnite..a Heinz 57 baby..she was soon to b 11 and disappeared
Roxie..3yrs. 3 months...her spine separated and she had to b put to sleep...

I have all the last ones ashes except,of course, Midnite.
also have the ashes of my little meanie Prince..ball of white fur and meaner than a snake..always into something..lolhe was 3 when he passed.

Heart aches are a part of loving.i dearly loved all my buddies..they were family and not many days go by that I don't think of them..

they will b spread with my ashes at my place of birth..

.....that´s the main reason,i don´t got a dog or a cat...to much time and space ( i could not imagine,haveing a dog or a cat living in the house/rooms..maybe if i had a farm) ...and my uncles shepperd was biting me when i was 10-12yrs old LOL..thats reason #2, i don´t realy like dogs

a spider is quite modest....a smal,warm terrarium;some water & a cricket or a baby-mouse every 3-4weeks.,thats all!! no need to walk it and you don´t have to chase it off,when you want to lay on your couch ;)

a person must understand what comes when u get a dog cat anything that requires constant daily care.

if u leave u must put them in a trusted kennel that cost's us 96 dollars a day for 3 large dogs and 1 cat..lol

then ,just like kids, u worry when u leave them etc.....some people are animal lovers and some are not...

lol lol I find out now why u didn't come Saxo..my BIG Shepherds..lol

I agree, before our dog died, we paid a friends son $50 a day stay at our house and dog sit. Gets pricey for a two week vacation, but very much worth it to not have to worry.

Yeah, but I'd be tempted to smack it with a rolled up magazine or spray it with insecticide every time I saw it.

On the other hand, a snake is also low maintenance. And for some reason I don't have the same disgust for snakes that I do for spiders.

I had a common garter snake that ate live goldfish. If you put a small bowl with a fish in it, he (or she, now that I consider it) would stick his head in the water and grab the fish. He would then bash it against a rock until it was dead (no constricting) and then swallow it. He got about 3 or 4 fish a month.

Once you get attached to an pet, you're stuck... you know in the back of your head that one day you're gonna be in for it when their final day comes... it's rough, it's the same as losing a family member.

My wife and I have a Lhasa Apso named Maui that is 9yo and almost a year ago we had to put down our 14yo Lhasa Apso, Milo, due to him being diagnosed with diabetes and advanced pancreatic cancer and suffering greatly because of it. I feel it was the most humane thing to do for him even though it broke my heart. It's hard to keep dry eyes when I think of him. I miss him dearly.

I did treat him with cannabis, I believe he enjoyed it and it gave him an appetite. He was much more vocal after he had an edible... anyone that knows this breed knows these dogs can "talk" to you... they are very vocal animals.

As for reptiles... I was born and raised in the Mojave Desert and as a kid I would catch anything that moved, with or without legs.

I have caught every type of lizard, snake, gecko, spider/tarantula and scorpion that resides in my section of the Mojave.
When I was a teen I would catch rattlesnakes and take them to a local herpetologist so he could milk them to create antivenin. Afterwards, he would give the snakes back to me and I would take them back to where I caught them and set them free.

My favorite is still the Mojave Green rattlesnake. After shedding their old skin they are the coolest vibrant green color, but keep your distance or they will most definitely ruin your day!

I am more of a cat lover but i think the heartache is the same when you lose them. It is so painful that you consider not getting a pet again.

The sorrow of losing them is only temporary. If I had the time, I'd get another dog to replace the guy in my avatar. I just don't have the time or stability in my life (the kind of stability that a dog wants — like his/her owner being around).

We can all use a good reminder of mortality, anyway.
