I love animals and I enjoy looking at colourful marine fishes but I just can't bring myself to love a crab. YK has been urging me to play with his hermit crabs and I wouldn't even touch them. What else can they do besides hide in their shells all day, eat and walk about. I think they look like aliens.
When I was at the container yard this afternoon, one of the dogs (a big brown mongrel) which I have not met before kept sniffing my legs and wanted to follow me home. I would be tempted to bring it home if it was a puppy. Then again, I can't keep another pet in my house.
Now that Rusty has recovered, he's taking his walks very seriously again. In fact, he's back with a vengeance. Yesterday, he made me walk him for almost an hour. In the end, I was the one growling "Rusty! let's go home!" "This way Rusty!"
One Rusty, two hermit crabs and an aquarium teeming with corals and fishes... that's more than enough!
