Gatiba WachiraYes dogs. I really enjoyed going hunting with my friends and pets.

Brandon Kitchens We had two English Setters growing up. BEAUTIFUL dogs. Hunter thought he was a cat always laying on top of the couch and Sadie was rambunctious and always a klutz running into everything.

Shawn Kingbird Dog person but wife and kids overruled me and now we have a Cat. His name is Milo Jenkins. Barn Cat. No collar. Outside cat to the fullest best pet ever. 

Ran Kilpatrick We had a dog named Rosie and would always get out of the yard for a day or two. Come back and she would be pregnant! She had like 4 liters of puppies the whole time we had here!
