We (the kids and I) have long wanted a pet that is bigger than a fish, but my wife was not raised with animals in the house, so she resisted. Camilla (photos later when she's settled in) is an emotional support animal for my daughter, so my wife has relented. Maybe once my wife gets used to having a cat around, I can talk her into us getting a dog. It's been a few decades since I had a dog. If not, I'm pushing to return to the days when I had larger fish tanks with expensive and exotic fish.
