No. I've thought about it, but haven't done it yet.

We were adopted by our pets. The first time Betsy the Wonder Dog stepped into the house she promptly defecated behind the dining room table as if to announce "Eh, this will do." Tommy The Basement Cat will occasionally snag the backs of our calves with his razor sharp claws when he feels we haven't been attentive enough. A few weeks ago I asked Mrs Roe if we might get a parrot, as I had grown up in a house where my parents always had birds. I think she is weakening from her original response as it has now softened to "Not a snowball's chance in HELL!!"

Betsy came from a Keeshond rescue organization and Tommy is feline leukemia positive (with no current symptoms) rescue that was headed for certain euthanasia.

Don't forget your bees.

They are currently using their mind controlling ultrahigh frequency mojo on you right now.

We adopted our first dog from a municipal pound, and the second dog showed up at work one night, so I took her home and we kept her after trying in vain to find a possible owner and sinking a couple hundred dollars into her at the vet.
