Not quite as effective as the cute puppies in the humane society ads.

My friend Marcy has been telling me for years that I need a dog.  She thinks it would be good for me to have a pet for companionship.  I have always avoided getting one based on the fact that my schedule prevents me from being home frequently enough to let it outside.  I can see the benefit of having a pet, I just don’t think that a dog is the right pet for me.  I personally think I am more of a lobster guy.  While lobsters may not be the most common pets, I find them absolutely fascinating.  Of course a chilled salt-water tank is a bit more of a financial commitment than a food and water bowl, so I remain without a pet lobster.  As a prelude to my purchase of “Rock” (I have already named him), I wanted to share with you some reasons why lobsters are way cooler than most animals.

      The problem is that running a salt water tank with a chiller is pretty expensive. Chillers cost more and use far more electricity than warmers. What many people do is get langostinos or spiny lobsters as pets. These are warm water lobsters and are far easier to maintain. It just isn’t the same to me though.

      There is also someone else on the dog bandwagon though that I can’t quite switch to team lobster. She is pretty effective at persuading me to see things through her point of view. Maybe you can help persuade her to team lobster.
