While in college, my oldest son adopted a rabbit, Robby, whose owner had found that he was allergic to the cute little fella. Marc gladly took over his care and enjoyed this quiet and cuddly roommate. Unfortunately, the next year, Marc's new roommate disagreed with having a furry addition to their frat house fun. So Robby came to live with us. He was here until Marc's law school graduation, upon which time Marc promptly reacquired his former roommate. He and Robby continue to share a historic apartment, where wood floors are an easy cleanup and Robby is a happy companion.
If you are thinking of bringing a pet to live with you, I encourage you to read up on breeds and the needs of each type of pet you are considering. Choose a pet whose energy and needs matches your ability to provide for it. Above all, this consideration will go the farthest in assuring you a successful match. There is no greater love than the unconditional kind you receive from a dog.
