Amen, sister...

Actually, I have a chihuahua - she weighs four pounds, eats, sleeps, pees
and poops on a regular basis, and I have to feed her and walk her always -
she too, beeps when she needs things...

I got her for free, in Prospect Park, Brooklyn.  Cheaper than a tamagochi,
and the value of life isn't lost, here - she wasn't shiny plastic when I
got her, she was mangy skin and bones.  If I don't take care of her, and
she dies, I don't get her back in any way, shape or form, although I could
always go out and GET another one - somehow, though, I don't know if I'd
find myself crying if my tamagochi died...
