No, I tend to be allergic to animals.  My youngest son has a pretty severe allergy to cats.  We have tried dogs in the past, but haven't had much luck.  The cats cause respiratory type allergies with me and my eyes will itch so bad and swell shut.  Dogs..well, I am allergic to their saliva.  So, if I try to play with them or pet them or touch their toys at all, I break out in a rash.

My husband is REALLY wanting a Puli.  I  have heard people tend to not be allergic to them, but that is the people that are allergic to the fur.  I am skeptical.

I am sure my husband and boys will talk me into a dog eventually.

no, we had a bearded dragon, but when we moved to this house we took her to my in-laws' and she's just stayed there.  now that we're leaving the country, she's essentially theirs.  not that we don't love her or anything, but it would be hard to take care of her the way she needs with a too-curious toddler and her cage having to be upstairs.  when we get back from oki, i'd like to get a dog or bunny (or both?).

We have a Ferret, 7 fish and 2 snails. lol The aquatic animals are mine and the Ferret is the kiddo's and hubby's. We will hopefully be getting a dog in the near future too.

We had a Siberian Husky, but we had to get rid of her b/c she had issues with my son. I got her when there was no male dominant figure in the house :( I really miss her like crazy. Hopefully we'll get a puppy of some sort when we pcs and get settled. I miss having animals around.

We have two pugs - both rescues.  The first one we got right before DH's first deployment to keep me company.  We got the second one the day DH returned from that deployment.  He figured our 1st needed a companion.  He's right - almost 7 years later & they're inseparable! They've been through 2 moves & have handled them like champs.
