    Probably a horse but in reality, besides dogs, there isn't anything else I really would like to own.

    I screwed up on the poll. LOL. If you take the poll, just put in what your favorite choices would be. There are multiple choices. The order of them can only be placed in the reply.

    So, my favorites in order would be: horses, goats, pigs, chickens, Guinea pigs, rabbits and a Jersey cow. Then, donkey, mule, sheep.

    I said pig and rabbit, but I really like rats as well.

    I like horses, but don't have room for one. ;)

    Horse (Im a horsey girl. Currently have 7), Rats, Pigs.

    Rats and dogs are equals on my list. If I ever couldn't have a dog I'd have rats forsure. I don't feel like I have enough time for both though. I enjoy going out on hikes so much that dogs just seem like a better company for that sort of thing.

    Erm, I guess ferrets, guinea pigs, hamsters, fish, snakes, reptiles, etc. Basically small animals. But NO rabbits, pigs, etc. Had enough rabbits. >_<

    Goats are very dog like. Horses are good, but as a pet, I would choose a goat.

    On the poll list I'd say pigs, rabbits and horses. I LOVE pigs. They are very smart, and the one at the farm loved my attention (or food, but either way he came when I yelled Here piggy piggy piggy). I like rabbits but it would have to be a big one, small ones seem so skittish sometimes. I don't really know much about horses, in fact I met my first horses a few weeks ago. But i would really like to learn to ride.

    So from not on the list I like birds, bigger birds. They are also intelligent and very affectionate. birds are my #1 choice if there were no dogs or cats.

    I've wanted a ferret for quite sometime but have heard some bad things about them, they seem cat like to me.

    And I love my gerbils!

    but honestly nothing really comes close to a dog or a cat at all.
