Just Kate Posted November 2, 2012 Share Posted November 2, 2012 (edited) I am considering surprising ds with a small pet for Christmas. He is a total animal lover and has begged for his very own pet for ages. We currently have a black lab, and while ds loves him, he doesn't really feel like the dog is *his* pet because we had the dog before we had ds. Here are some things to consider: We currently rent our home, so we can't have a destructive pet Occassionally, we are out of the house about 12 hours in a row - would want a pet that could handle that amount of time being alone While I don't mind something with some maintenance, would like something sort of lower maintenance (dh is gone a lot so helping ds with pet will fall on me) Obviously, a pet that is good with kids Can you please give me some pet suggestions? I know this would make ds's Christmas to find a just-for-him pet under the tree. :D ETA: I know some of you may ask what kind of pet ds wants...seriously, he wants any pet! He has asked for a dog (not happening right now), a guinea pig, a hamster, a lizard, an iguana, a scorpion, a snake, a giant aquarium, a flying squirrel, and now a hedgehog (since I mentioned it to him after reading the hedgehog thread) - lol.
