We are adding two more additions - to the family - two guinea pigs through a rescue. My son has done so much research and can not wait till we pick them up.

To me, my GSD is not a "pet". She is part of my family - my pack. If I can't devote time in play and care then I shouldn't have any. A "pet" is a goldfish or hampster. Feed it, close the cage and go do some else. GSDs are pack canines and they want to please the alpha, they love being part of that pack. One or two GSDs for most people are all that can be cared for. More than that, they may form their own "pack" and pick their own alpha. You may sacrifice a very loving and loyal relationship when that happens. One GSD and she is my best friend.

We have "inside pets", and "outside pets". 2 German Shepherds, 14 canaries and 25 Gouldian finches in the house. The canaries and finches are all "trained", to go back to their cages when I use a dowel to ask them to go back into their cages.
Outside "pets" include our 6 geese, who think they are people, my old Paso Fino, and give or take 60 chickens, roosters and chicks. Everyone here is a pet, my favourite chickens are my very sweet Buff Brahmas. They particularly enjoy helping me deadhead my poor geraniums.
Oh, guess I should show the dogs too...Daisy's 5 months and Ellie's coming up on 9 years on Boxing Day.
