I mean a lot of aussies have swimming pools, and it is possible that someone might have a porpoise as a pet?
I guess they would be a lot of hard work. Maybe the regular size swimming pool would be too small for them.
Back to googling: “Porpoises range in size from the 1.4 metres (4.6 ft) and 54 kilograms (119 lb) Vaquita, the smallest cetacean to be discovered, to the 2.3 metres (7.5 ft) and 220 kilograms (490 lb) Dall’s porpoise.” I have no input on porpoises but wanted to acknowledge your thread and your humor which I find … humorous. Porpoise, that is purpose, funny, jack, funny I say.
At least you wouldn’t have to take it for a walk every day. Not that I don’t love my dog. Just after a while it does become a chore sometimes. At 13 kg, my dog is much easier to lift and put in the car when we go to the park. I’d struggle to put a 54 kg porpoise in the car to take to the beach for an outing. I’m just under double a porpoise’s weight, but I’d do a serious back injury by trying to lift him into the car.
Maybe you would have to live very close to the beach to have a porpoise… you could have pool with a tunnel that ran between it and the sea, so the porpoise could let itself out, like a doggie door. But, then you might run the risk of getting other sea creatures in your pool like a jellyfish or something… And there goes my imagination… running away again… far far away… 🙂
Hilarious- you eat it instead… funny ending there, a surprise poetic ending. I have a new culinary joy- eating zucchini bread with melted chocolate dipped in sardine olive oil, you know oil from a sardine can? Basically dipping melted chocolate cake in a sardine can and I find it delightful. Wonder if your dog would like it?
