What is your favorite pet?
My favorite was a dog we called "Wonder." He just showed up one day and we wondered where he came from. We wondered what his name was and as time went on, we wondered why we kept him. So, we called him, Wonder. Not long after he came to live with us he was out in the backyard with my son who was playing. Some strange dogs came over the fence and came aggressively towards my 3-year son. Wonder jumped up and chased them away. There is no more loyal friend than a good dog.
