This is my marriage and all my friends marriages to a tee.
 
I didn't want cats. My wife wanted cats. So we compromised and got five cats.

Mmm-hmm. My husband didn't want dogs in the house and no cats at all. That was 3 inside cats and 6 house dogs ago. :D The wonderful thing is that he has adored them all. This has been over almost 40 years, not all at once.

My husband had never had indoor pets - at one point we had 7 cats. We are down to 6 now.

When we had 6 dachshunds, I told my husband it was his fault. I'd never had a dachshund until I met him or multiple dogs. He wanted a dachshund and then decided that one needed a buddy and it just sort of escalated. His fault completely :D

We had been cat (my love) and dog (his love) parents/servants for more than 30 years. But about 10 years ago we decided to no longer replace our babies and downpetsize. In 2016 we lost our sweet Molly dog and my darling Chester cat--my avatar that I just cannot replace. And on Jan 2 of this year my dear Flash died in my arms. I like the freedom we have achieved but I miss having a purring hairball curled up in my lap. Thank goodness we occasionally sit the Grandpuppy or DH would probably sneak a barker into the house.

I've always wanted a dachshund- hopefully one day I will. I used to babysit for a family who had one and he and I were buddies- he kept me company all evening. Love them!
