Caesar is the king. We are the staff, maid, butler, chauffeurs, caretakers of his domain.

I had a lab that could lay on the bed and keep four feet just touching the floor. Sneaky boy but he knew he was stretching the rules. Best dog I ever had and still missed after almost 20 years.

Yes, pets rule the household here. The only change is now it's cats. My husband is a cat lover. There's no accounting for taste.

Ok, I'm feeling guilty - - - - I guess even though they aren't as sneaky as the dogs, the other animal deserve a mention, too! In addition to the 2 dogs, we have a cat, a hamster and a ball python!

If you put the snake out on a fuzzy blanket, he will flip himself back and forth real fast and scoot all over the place - - - you have to see it, it is hilarious!!! Don't worry, he's not the big mean kind of snake, he's actually very friendly!

We were petless for a long time after we had to put our golden Lab down. After 5 years a kitten showed up that was dumped by his mother (we figured that out after learning about his disposition.) He just didn't conform to the kitten routine.

It took over 6 months for him to get over the fact we were not going to hurt him, but being a male he found many ways to get in trouble and came home looking like a boxer that had gone 10 rounds, this was after he had been fixed, not once, but twice.

After many vet $ later he has been banished to the house. Looks very much like Tinmans cat above.

Yeah, my dog pretty much rules the house. I've tried not to spoil him too much but he is just so cool so it's really hard not to!

I have 2 borzoi, a french bulldog, a persian cat, a goldfish, 2 finches, 2 frogs, a toad, an anole, 3 rat snakes, 3 ball pythons, a kingsnake, a yellow foot tortoise, 2 horses (not in the house) and a VERY patient girlfriend!! I think thats all.

And did I mention a huge food bill!

As far as who rules, it must be the pets, I'm to tired after feeding, cleaning, grooming and exercising all who need it!!
