We had pets in one area on my mission. I'm not talking about the adopted cockroaches or the rats that played football in the ceiling. We had a couple of fish that lived in our front room, Stud and Bud. They didn't last long.
That experience did make me think, however, if missionaries could have pets, what would they be? A golden retriever certainly seems appropriate!
Shhh! Don't tell anyone that there's a typo in the caption. This is an old sketch from before there was such a thing as spell check!
