Once I move to a place where I can have pets, I'm definitely looking at getting a couple of cats and/or a couple of dogs (Boston Terriers like Corbin above - my ex-roommate's dog, but my little buddy!😉). Yes, a couple. Most of the time, when people complain about problem animals, it's usually because they only have one which has to stay home alone when they're gone (sure, some bad training can contribute too). When they have at least one friend to hang out with they are FAR more unlikely to go manic and start doing bad things (good training should prevent the "group trouble" stuff - LOL). Of course, the breed can also make a huge difference. Bostons LOVE people so leaving them by themselves is almost punishment.
