My Niece and her hubby had 2 ferrets. They were really cute, but I found them to be quite "aromatic". They were also really naughty and would bite and hide. I hope you find a suitable companion.

Awww...ferrets are so cute. Have you seen Kindergarten Cop? Schwarzenegger's character has a ferret.

The problem with dogs is that you need a fair amount of time to housebreak them, so at first they need to go outside a lot.

Mason, I see that you are reconsidering the ferret idea, what about a Maine Coon cat? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maine_Coon

My neighbor has one and the cat is 35 lbs! I do think he is a bit overfed but he was a happy cat while I was there. According to the Wiki, they are dog like in a cat sort of way! This will be the next cat I get, a great bit easy going fluffball.

Hmm, what about a talking parrot?? hahaha...Now THAT would be a companion...I could just imagine all the trouble the parrot would stir up


Oh, and, Maine Coons are AWESOME cats. My mom and dad had one until recently, Thorns. Poor thing, he died not too long ago and the vet isn't 100% sure why. When he was a kitten, the breeder pointed out he did have a heart murmur but we don't know if that was the cause. Thorns got up to about 30 pounds, I believe and he was such a beautiful, sweet, lovable cat.

How about a chimp or orangatan (spelling?)? Just kidding. Wasn't there a TV show back in the 70's or 80's that had a trucker with one of these? Just think too if it could work on your knitting when you couldn't. Think of all the projects you could get finished.

My brother had a ferret when he drove a truck. I can't remember any issues with it. Someone gave my daughter a pair of rats once. They were fun. They poop a LOT. I vote for a small dog. You can just have more of a relationship with them and some small breeds don't chew that much after they're past the puppy teething. They live longer than rodents, too, and are cuddlier while you sleep. I'm very biased.

The only thing I can say about ferrets is that you need to make sure that they get al the exercise they need. Get lots of toys for them to play with. Other than that.... Hope you get one!

And make sure it's in its cage when you're driving or they get under your feet and pedals. A dog will look out the window.

Mason, one of my friends had a mixed breed dog that traveled with him. Great pet, but he didn't like lot lizards at all. Anyone else could come to the cab, but not the LL's. Really cut down on Jim's social life

That's good, though, because lot lizards can really cut into your knitting time. Bet Mason could whip up a mean little doggie sweater!
