Answer to original question: yes although not often. I do highly enjoy playing devil's advocate in every possible conversation. It helps me understand the topic better by thinking about it from a different view point and it bugs the shit out of people... win win
Answer to original thread hijack: I currently have 2 cocker spaniels (way too hyper for me), 2 mutts that apparently had a horrible childhood and are scared of all males (unless food is involved), 2 cats (one's a prissy old bitch and the other was a dog in another life), 1 beagle that is just awesome except when he smells something interesting then he wont listen for shit. First 2 were paid for, 5 were rescues.
