The pandemic, though negative in its nature, has allowed me to explore new hobbies to help pass the time in a positive way. Since moving, my partner and I have become plant parents. What began as five simple cacti that we had had for years, turned into a house full of both indoor and outdoor plants. Our plants total around forty-five now. Because of our success with our plants, we thought we were ready to adopt a small cat to have as company. We decided to dog-sit my parents elderly dog Scooby for the weekend as a test run. I grew up with Scooby, love him dearly, but never had I been so anxious about having another living being around. My partner, a person who has grown up around animals felt the same way. Needless to say, we will be sticking with plants for the foreseeable future. We have come to the conclusion that we are better at being dog siblings rather than dog parents.
