Dumpster Fire of the Gods
- Aug 8, 2005
With all due respects to you and yours, please allow me to rephrase your question. A five year old... What animal do YOU want to take care of, be responsible for, feed and maintain, assure it's health and safety along with everyone else in your household, that your child can play with as the toy and hopefully training tool it will be regarded as.My daughter has asked for a pet for her birthday
You are the capable responsible party. You also take care of the home. Weigh your options from the suggestions given, how much time and energy you wish to invest, and your own knowledge and wisdom. You fill in the blanks.
(When it comes to the potential for an animal to be abused or possible even die, I'm going to shoot straight from the hip. Apologies extended if I offend)
