I haven't had a pet since I was young, but my brothers both have pets.
My brother adopted a greyhound that had had a racing career. She was a big dog and very lean and fast. She liked to sleep in a cage in the living room and her treat was to lick their ice cream bowls after dinner!
I remember my brother telling me how much he enjoyed taking her out for her walk after dinner. It was half an hour of exercise for both of them. He used the time to think about his day, and of course the dog just liked to go out. I walked her a few times as well, and once I even found money on the ground.
The dog lived a long, happy life with my brother and it was a very sad day when she finally died. For the moment, he has not adopted another dog but I think he will - and another greyhound!
