    I love our dogs (everyone loves their dogs!).

    What other pets do you have at home?

    We/I have a Russian Tortious names Bob. Bob likes romaine and sunshine and warm water. Bob resides in a large shallow reptile tank where I rearrange things from time to time to try to convince Bob that he's having a new adventure.

    Bob....

    I addition to Bob I have a fish tank filled with fish. I enjoy calm fish and bubbles. It's calming.

    We have horses but they don't live in our house. They poop too big. Seriously.

    What 'cha got besides dogs and cats?

    Have a cat now but we had 4-5 Hampsters when we lived in the apartment, one who could lift the tin lid off the "tank" & escape unless you put a large HB book (like a dictionary) on top. Another could get up serious speed in the exercise ball that..well.." Mario Andretti wouldda' sure been proud of the way he was movin' past that crowd...."

    Pie for the hay farm.jpg Had a Patagonian Cavy for years, some Degus, Guinea pigs (still have one), a canary that was a champion singer, and now a Chinchilla called Frogger who is an amazing gymnastic wizard that walks on walls.

    I'm allergic to dogs and cats and my wife loves rodents, though Cavies are not technically rodents.
    Running a bird sanctuary we get old ones hanging around when they can't quite make it in the wild any more. Some become short term pets.
    Others recuperate and return to the wild.
    We had a sparrow living by a sliding glass door for a whole winter, and his flock would visit on the other side of the glass each day. This guy was very respectful and didn't stray from his area. Something like a broken wing IIRC.
    A few years ago we had a little one eye sparrow named Squinty living with us for a few weeks. Didn't think he'd make it as he was blind in both eyes when he sat down and said "I'm not leaving".
    He would visit regularly and look in the window, ugly little bugger.

    We have a very nice pet cemetery in the back yard...

    Here's a pic of Piper, our dearly departed Patagonian Cavy.
    Oops, there she is up top. Not the most obedient of pets.

    We have a huge goldfish.

    We had baby ducks that were rescued from the road for a week, but we sent those to a friend on a farm. They are raising them until they are old enough to fly off on their own (mallards).

    Maybe later I can find a picture.

    ...just took one. I know you have been waiting with baited breath!

    When he stretches out and is not at an angle, he's about 7 inches long. Well, we assume the fish is a "he".

    It's hard to get a picture, though, since the silly fish never is still.

    ...and yes, I just set that ruler there to get a sense of scale - that is not permanent.

    I have 25 plants. They need care so that's gotta count for something

    I'd need Xanax, too, if bumped into that.

    Some aquarium fish. Nothing too spectacular. The Dwarf gourami male is the most flashy one. The female didn't last long. I heard they are bred for looks, not healthy lives... Then there's a couple of kinds of Characids and a Bristlenose Catfish named 'Martti' (Finnish derivative of 'Martin').

    I have a 35 pound tortoiseshell tabby, he's big but he is still a cat.
    my neighbor has a pair of pot bellied pigs. I'm always finding them in my yard.
    I have a feeling I'll have lots more to talk about when my wife's garden grows for a bit...

    I have a chocolate Lab, and 2 cats. We got a hamster for my youngest daughter a couple of years ago, and I really got attached to her. She was such a funny little thing! She didn't live very long. We had her for about a year. She got sick and died in my hands as I held her to give her warmth and love while she was passing.

    We got 2 new hamsters after awhile. One is a dwarf hamster with a lot of spunky personality, and the other is a bigger, but way more laid back, one.

    Hamsters are a lot of fun, but they just don't live very long. I may try a rat next, if I can just get over their creepy tails!
