How Many Animals Do You Have and What Kind?
« on: January 26, 2004, 03:50:34 AM »
I am definitely an animal lover. I have a cat named Jake. He is 6 years old and very loveable. :) I also have 2 dogs. An Australian Shepherd  (Tri) named Max and a Lab/ chow mix (who is black as night and as sweet as pie. The Aussie knows when I am in pain and always tries to make me feel better by cuddling. The Lab/chow is very sensitive and sweet. They have both been great company. They make life more bearable and enjoyable.

Hope you like this subject. ;)

P.S. They both think they are lap dogs (40 lb and 50 lbs)!!!...Lol

I have two animals -- a dog (Westie) and a Leopard Gecko.  Actually, the gecko is my daughter's.  The Westie is great company while I'm home by myself.  The other day, my daughter took her to the groomer, and she was gone most of the day, and I really missed the company.

I have a yellow lab too!  His name is Beau (or General PGT Beauregard, if you want to be specific).  He's the size of a horse.  (Well, not quite, but close)  At 130 pounds (not fat) the vet says he's the biggest lab she's ever seen.  He's 7 or so (not sure as we got him from the Humane Society) and spends his whole life sleeping in front of the fireplace with his teddy bear.

I'm a total animal lover.  I've got 2 dogs, one's a long-haired German Shepherd called Sophie, she's 4 years old and sooooo cute and the other is a Shepherd-Collie cross named Sam, she's nearly 9 and the smartest dog I've ever come across.  Both of my dogs also think they're lap dogs and push each other out the way to get on my lap!  

Also 2 cats - one called Charlie who is a psycho, she attacks your ankles as you walk by her.  The other one is Woody, he's a big lovable softy.  

I used to also have a rabbit, hamsters, 8 guinea pigs, a couple of mice, tank of tropical fish and tank of goldfish all at the same time.  :o

Why is it only women talking about there pets why isnt there men with bad knees talking about this?

I used to have 2 dogs merlin- a black labradore
               and leo- a springer spaniel

unfortunatly leo passed away 3 mounths ago but it was his time to go

My dogs have always been a presence which has always been there to help me throught the hard times

pets and bad legs are a good combonation to have but it is harder taking them out for a walk ;)

Hi ;D

I have a cream female Pomeranian. She is 6 lbs. Her name is Ginger. I have to tell the story of why/how we got her... Its kind of sad but its also happy too. My husbands mother passed away a year ago (on Feb 15th),  in a strange drowning accident. She loved Pomeranians and used to raise them when she lived in Germany. His mothers name was Virginia, but her nickname is Ginger. After his mother passed away, we wanted something to remember her by (besides the treasured memories we have of her in our hearts) so we decided to buy a puppy (plus we thought it'd be good 'pre- baby' preparation).... We named the adorable cream puff Ginger and LOVED HER- she brought so much happiness to our lives after such a terrible tragedy-- funny how animals can do that, huh? :) Later, we found out that Ginger was born the same day his mother had died (STRANGE)-- on Feb. 15th. It only made her more special in our eyes. And she continues to bring joy & happiness into our lives. This last November, we lost both a pregnancy and Joe's (my husband) Father ALSO passed away, of a sudden heart attack (we think he died from a broken heart). Through all of this hardship, Ginger has always made us smile through our tears and I really think she is a gift from GOD ;D ;D
Sorry, long story but I had to share :)

Beautiful Story Sarah. I have not lost any of my parents or parents in law. I know that must have been hard. You are a strong woman to go through all that and still have such a great outlook on life. God definitely carries us through the hard times and gives us strength.

Many Blessings to you

Christina ;)

I've got two King Charles Cavalier Spaniels - Henny (Downsbank Domino because of the dot on his face), who's 10 and so incredibly sweet; and Barney, who's just turned two and is still a total puppy...  Also three fish: Orlando, Biggedy and Puck; and one horse, George (otherwise known as Captain Chaos).
