Little G has mentioned a couple of times recently that he thinks we should have a pet. The other day at the dinner table he brought it up again, pointing out that we don't have any pets and that we really should get a dog. Since I refuse to get an animal until I am finished dealing with human, um, excrement, I launched into this long explanation about all the work you have to do for a dog (take him for a walk even when it's cold or rainy, clean up his business, etc, etc). When I was finished, he sat there and looked contemplative for a moment.
"What do you do with cats?" he wanted to know. :)
