No offense, Dean. We were asked to come to the Calgary Pet Expo that Mark was talking about, and I refuse to do those. I am not saying there is anything wrong with YOU doing it, I simply wont do it with our animals.
Something about kids petting all the cute furry critters and then touching a snake or lizard just doesnt sit right with me. Not that I worry about an accident, those can happen anywhere at any time. Hand washing and preventative measures aside, I just dont think it is fair to the reptiles to put them in the same building as a buffet of prey.
I have learned silence from the talkative, tolerance from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, stranger, I am ungrateful to these teachers.
