I added another kid to my family about a month ago....a male Pit Bull puppy. Kyah (my 2 yr old female Pit) is absolutely crazy about him. His name is Rorschach, as in the inkblot test....looks like a walking ink blot.  ;D

So...the current tally is: 2 dogs, 1 cat, parakeet, tiel, and assorted fish....
Arthroscopy 8/8/03 - partial meniscectomy (x2), chondroplasty, lateral release (failed). 1/04 - dx with "miserable alignment". 11/04 - dx patella baja.

I have two pets, a medium-short hair cat named Milo (female, one and a half years old) and a parakeet named Bird (  :D ). I'll tell ya, these two little guys have been so helpful for me during all this downtime this past year and a half. It's so amazing, how great my kitty has been -- she's so loving and caring. I thank God for her every day! :)

My husband is the animal lover around here, but I can't say no to anything..... At present we have:

2 Miniature Pinschers:
            Nautia (aka Nauty girl) &
            Teeny One - yeah you read it right -
             our 6 yr old named her - she is the
             oddest shaped little dog, but we we
             love her - we found her in an ice storm
             out in the middle of nowhere.

2 Cats:  Shelton got him for our little girls 4th
             birthday...he started out named Shelly, then
             we figured out he was a boy - oops!  ::)
            Racer he is Shelton's brother, after we
             got Shelton, my son cried, didn't quiet
             understand why he didn't get one too, so
             how can you not give in to tears......

1 Hamster: You know, I don't know what his name is...
                  I don't care for little things that move faster
                  than I do, plus he has spent the night in my
                  bed without invitation -  :o

1 Domesticated Rat: Rizzo & I'm not his
                               biggest fan either.  They belong
                               to my teenage son!

Kim, I have been dying for a newfoundland puppy, and will have one hopefully before the year is out. THere is a breeder in a town about 40 miles from here who asks $700 for a puppy, and I do want a puppy even though at 8 weeks they are the size of some full grown dogs. I don't have a pond or place for it to swim, although a small inground pool that wouldn't do. The breeder says he /she would be great for kids. I do have a big rough coat black, retriever, named Max, and a smooth hair fox terrier, too full of energy and hormones about one year old named Lucky, that belongs to my 11 yeare old daughter, and she doesn' really take care of him.He has too m uch energy, and has knocked me down more times thanI can remember. HE needs a new home, nobody wanted me toneuter him, like our other pets, and he is too full of himself. now. I inheirted 2 cats, bud and tigger, from another daughter, and a stray kitten that was starving to death, literally weight a pound. named Baxter, add to that an aquaraium full of aobu 150 fish, I also inheirted, and they all gather around like kids waiting to be fed. I wanted a weimanraner, and had one located, and my oldest son opened his big mouth to a friend that rushed to the breeder, and got him, and then gave him away. or the newfoundland, but guess I'll wait until my knee is more stable, although I crave his company. I almost settled for a great dane, less shedding. BUT they all need walking, and I can't do much right now, and nobody else probably will. Max is abou 10 years old and walking around from room to rooom is enough for him, and Lucky, plays like a marathon, and chases any toy for hours on his own. I think maybe pets are something chronic pain patients need, and know they can be a wonderful outlet. Teresa KIm, tell me more about your newfie.

what a great question!  

I have a black Shar-Pei named Kimber who is 5.  He is very protective and loyal & I think he actually knows how to make me laugh when he pulls his antics! He lays by my side on the floor wherever I am.

My other dog is a Chinese Pug named Bailey who is 3.  She's an absolute clown.. she knows tons of tricks & loves to cuddle w/ the big dog..

The last time I took them to the kennel a man saw them commented "Now THERE'S a motley crue!"  :)

I have a small flock of birds- pics are here

http://photobucket.com/albums/v93/handfed_babies/

I breed, raise. and rescue- the rescues are retired as PETS no matter what they were as we often get little to nothing on their past.

With the knee pain its hard to take care fo them all so I have been having to have help with them.
