What a Zoo

If Cory ever gets around to posting his "about" page you'll learn that he loves animals, probably more than he loves me (although if you know him I'm sure you found out from him personally). I on the other hand couldn't care less about animals. They smell bad and they make a mess and they are pretty stupid. Okay that's a little harsh, but the more Cory gushes about everything to do with the animal kingdom the more I feel like I have to be the complete opposite.

I especially don't like dogs and all Cory can talk about is getting a dog and naming our dogs and what he's going to do with a dog and what kind of dog he wants. It drives me bonkers.

Here's a picture of his current favorite. It's a bull terrier.

Get a load of that football head.

And then he talks about all the weird pets we're going to have. 

Like a capybara, the world's largest rodent. 
Cuddly, right?

Or the guanacos we'll have to teach our kids responsibility.
 (If you ask me they're kinda creepy)

When he's really dreaming big he thinks we're going to get pygmy hippos and miniature zebu and brahman cattle.

Needless to say, our house will be a zoo, and not in the figurative sense where we have lots of kids and lots of things going on. I mean literally a zoo with crazy weird animals running around. And guess who's going to have to take care of the zoo while the one who wanted it is at work. That's right, me.

We already own a pair of sugar gliders (his 24th birthday present) and a betta fish (which Cory got for free from his evolutionary biology class). We're well on our way to a house full of beasts.

If you want my opinion I'd be happy with a fluffy bunny.

I have to say I can't take your side on this one...I'm a HUGE animal fan. But hang in there. You may end up loving the little critters in the end ;)

Oh Kristen, I feel your pain... sort of. Luckily Parker only wants a dog at this point in our lives but I don't want to take care of its messes when he's gone all day. Someday we'll have one, but not today or tomorrow. :)
