    If you could have any animal...

    ...as a pet, what would it be? I used to want a ferret, then a striped skunk, but now I want a honey badger.

    None. I haven't been into exotic pets since I was a kid. I'm happy with my fat Aussie, Brunhilda. She's smart and friendly. Best pet I've ever had.

    Yeah I really don't think pets come any better than dogs. And this coming from a guy that has two cats.......leave it to the wife and kids and look what happens. Although I must admit for cats these two are fairly amusing.

    Any animal?

    I guess I'd choose something really exotic.....thinking.......thinking.......

    Well, I also vote "Dog". You know, "Man's best friend" isn't just an honorary title or slogan - it's true. They earned that title!

    I meant besides a dog or cat. I have a dog and a dog really is a man's best friend.

    Does a guinea pig count. I have one of those. Her name is Miss Molly and she's a good pet.

    I've had a hamster and a blue rat. They were both awesome. Never had a guinea pig though. I tried keeping two mice this past fall, but they smelled horrible after two days, and my puppy kept trying to eat them.

    Well if I could have ANY animal it's hard to beat a Bengal Tiger.......or a sweet Falcon.........Monkeys are cool as long as I don't have to take care of or clean up after it. Dolphins are cool. I'm sure there's more.

    Monkey would make a great home defense weapon. The second an intruder steps in the door he flings sh*t all over the guy. Hell I'd turn around and run from that.

    I'm beginning to believe that Wandering man needs to visit and have a long talk with you FHF.

    All lame choices thus far.

    Here's my pick for pet:



    Just can't pet her when wife is around.

    Mike, I'm afraid a talk with Wandering Man would not result in what you could hope for. I'd still want a side saddle, a badger, more tattoos, and I'll still listen to angry music. BUT...I don't want a Desert Eagle anymore. I guess I'm making some sort of progress...

    That is definitely progress.

    Just enjoy whatever you have and get.

    I never tried one but guess a side saddel might be easier to get off of when horsey does a little dance.
