What kind of pet do you have (dog, cat, bird, etc.)?       Dog

Funniest moment you’ve had with your pet:     Cyrus is 120 pounds and all legs. If he has to change directions to follow me or if he hears something outside, his legs get out from under him and he splats out on the floor. Then he looks at me like he meant to do that!
