My New Dream Pet

Ever since I discovered The Daily Coyote, I've been wanting my very own canis latrans. Although I knew that it was very unrealistic, I thought a pet coyote sounded just so awesome! But reading the book and learning of Charlie's aggression issues has since put a damper on my enthusiasm.

But then I discovered the adorable fennec fox, native of the African deserts, who typically weighs only around 3-5 lbs, about half of that in the ears. But despite being a wild animal, it can indeed be kept as a pet!

How wonderful!
