Why would he have to walk the fish?
2003-04-22 01:41:54 PM  
Why just one turtle? Were they worried that two would be too hard to take care of?

the most shocking thing about this article is that they owned 4 gerbils.

unless they were psycho enough to get them neutered
2003-04-22 01:56:15 PM  
Why would anyone walk a fish?
2003-04-22 01:56:20 PM  
You don't walk cats, birds, hamsters, lizards, rabbits, rats, gerbils, chinchillas, turtles or fish.

Just those damn dogs

All the more reason not to have dogs.
