For years now, my future-veterinarian sister has been asking me when we’re going to get a pet.
I keep telling her that we will get a dog just as soon as we can afford a fence in the back yard, which will probably be a while yet.
But, today, I am proud to announce that we have a new pet way ahead of schedule!
Yes, friends, we have a pet dragonfly:
Ain’t she pretty?
We haven’t settled on a name yet, but I’m gunning for ‘Dorothy’. Doesn’t she look like a ‘Dorothy’?
We didn’t really go looking for her, and we don’t keep her in a cage or anything. But just about every night, when we go out front to play after dinner, there she is, perched on the car radio antenna:
So, I don’t know – maybe there’s a rule about how many days in a row she needs to come visit before we can officially call her our ‘pet’, but ‘Dorothy’ is quickly becoming part of the family!
