Pet: Dog
In general, I like animals (sometimes more than I like humans). I think it would be very interesting and challenging to collaborate with non-human species to create different forms of art. Determining forms of communication with other species will be an interesting thing to observe and practice.
I own two dogs right now - a rat terrier named Spanky, and a chihuahua/toy poodle named Pickle. They are both really smart and know several tricks (ranging from sit, down, and stay to fetch, open the door, and wait before getting treats!). Throughout my lifetime I also owned a variety of pets: hamsters, birds, frogs, crayfish, and newts.
