We love our pet goldfish and our family dog, but no pet can really compare to Gary the snail on SpongeBob SquarePants. He's truly a sponge's best friend! Have you ever seen a pet read literature and write poetry? Didn't think so. Have you seen a pet pay the bills? Again, didn't think so. Can your pet do impressions of your friends? For the third time, we didn't think so. Gary is SpongeBob's sidekick and the show just wouldn't be the same LOL-worthy part of our day without him around!
