    What's the meaning of 'a pet idea'?

    Can anyone tell me what 'a pet idea' means in the following context?

    A manager must deal with difficulties in a reasonable way and should not be seduced by the boss's pet idea.

    Thank you!

    A "pet" idea is a favorite idea, or something that the boss is partial to.
