    I am here in England and really like the way people treat their dogs as if it is like a member of their family and not just a pet. If I will buy/adapt a kind of dog it would be a golden/cream retriever as it is in its nature to be companionable.

    I have the cutest little Chihuahua that my sons got us two years ago.  Since I work from my home office on the computer all day, he is my perfect companion, always at my side and ready to take a ride to Home Depot, McDonald's or for a nice walk along the water where we live.

    He is so well balanced and sweet.  Check out my Hub about video taping your pets and you will not only see photos of Georgie, but two nice videos.

    That said, I also have had tropical fish all my life and love watching the serene and calming tank as they swim and greet me when I go to feed them.

    In my life it is all about minimum care and calm...I love my little doggie and my little fishies too.  You can see some photos of my fish tank too on another hub I wrote about aquariums.

    Ducks!  They are very entertaining.  You can train them and they can be left for several days with minimal care as long as they are in a covered duck house and have plenty of food and water.  They are very social, are relatively quiet, and make great guard pets because they quack when someone walks by the cage. They can live for 25 years. The girls can provide eggs for breakfast. We have had pet ducks for years.  We love them.  They are a little messy, but otherwise they make really fun pets.

    I have a cat who is great and is almost like a dog. He is quite funny to watch and I don't let him go outside and he doesn't mind. On top of that, cats are pretty low maintenence and they can take care of themselves for a lot of things that dogs and other animals can't. Cats can also live for a rather long time and it's great to have that companionship.
