Choosing a pet can be vexing and yet it’s important to vet all the choices you’ve got. If you’re in search of a pet who will perch on your silver white birch, it’s the best of the lot. Dactyls are clever as hunters and never go hungry whenever they’re ready to eat. Not just a yard bird, the dactyl’s a guard bird and, as such, a hard bird for others to beat. Its beak and claws will make trespassers pause and give cat burglars cause to look elsewhere for loot. Dactyls obey each command that you say. Thus, it’s rarely that they must be given the boot. Next thing to do is decide whether you are inclined to own two, since the choice may be hard. Two pterodactyls (and I will be tactful) would be quite impactful when cleaning the yard. Dactyls like dating, the joys of relating. It’s alienating to live all alone. Dactyls may mope if you force them to cope with the loss of all hope for a love of their own. Dactyl romance should be given a chance so I’ll offer my answer, precise and succinct. Always buy two, otherwise it is you who, without meaning to, help make dactyls extinct! Mark F.
