Hi. I had many dogs and cats when i was young. Even rared chickens in my house. Fast forward I was unable to keep any pets as I had initially stayed in an apartment. Only had a fish tank that i kept till i moved home to a landed property. The fishes died while moving and we never thought of replacing them. In between me and my wife had the privilage of rescuing a bird(chick) that fell of its nest. took care of it till it could fly. A nice pretty yellow canary. Let it go as it belongs to the wild nature and not caged up. Now my daughter has grown to like animals especially dogs and she wants a puppy. We are thinking of adopting one.
