Everyone should have to have a pet. Man didn’t spend thousands of years domesticating the dog in order for people to choose to defend their homes on their own. It’s an insult to everything we worked so hard to establish.
And when I say “pet,” I mean a large, bloodthirsty canine – not some little girly cat. A cougar, tiger, lion, or (to a lesser extent) jackal would be acceptable, but just make sure that it’s able to break a bone with its jaws. Of course, it’s even better to domesticate something else yourself, doing future generations a favor. It would rock to be the first person with a trained Tasmanian devil.
