Pet Rok

A Pet Rok while a costly endeavour is the best kind of pet for those looking to find the companionship of a loyal animal without having to take on all the responsibility of caring for one. Pet Roks are small rock golems that are magically created by wizards who specialize in conjuration and elemental magic. These Roks while small in stature are magically programmed to follow its masters every instruction, not only creating a ceaselessly loyal creature but an endlessly useful one as well.

I just noticed that "Rock" is misspelled. So they are not pet rocks after all
