So I go tme a new dog. Well, new to me. He's a Rottweiler. A BIG one. He is very chill and sweet if a little sarcastic. Yes, as with all if my pets, Buddy talks to me. He is 8 years old. His owner passed away leaving him alone. So now we are a family of 1 Melvin, 2 dogs, and 3 cats. And yes, the animals run the zoo.
