Hi Animal People!!

My "roomie" is a Siamese kitty named Tucker.   He is my sanity and sounding board though the knee pain.  Isn't it funny how animals know when you aren't feeling well??  Tuck is the best nap taker there ever was.  He even fetches and runs to the phone when it rings.

I wish I had a house instead of an apartment so I could get a dog too! ;D

i have two cats, Boomer and Travis that look almost exactly alike.  the only way to tell them apart is that boomer is fatter.  i also have a dog (german shepard/beagle) named zackie, that loves chasing the cats the around the house

Hi!
I have one dog - a 16-month old Bouvier male and I have 10 fish.  The Bouvier is just starting to get out of that puppy phase.  It's quite an experience having a very large, enthusiastic baby in the house!  I wouldn't have missed it for the world, though.  I can say that now that it's pretty much over!
Nancy.

P.S.  My Bouvier's name is Stryder.  He was named after Aragorn from LOTR, but we wanted to spell it differently.

Live on a 100 acre farm, so critters are a must!!   :D

We have 2 golden retrievers, Zena and Zeuss.  One house cat (Snowflake) that's now a greenhouse cat cuz the new hubby won't let me have the cat in the new house.  Barn/greenhouse cats, Tiger, Jaz, Oreo and Lucky (he's used his 9 and borrowed a few lives).  Had a bird, but again ...no bird in the new house ??!!   Then there's all 39 horses.   My favorites are Find Time For Me (aka Ziggy); Zips Gone Country (aka Dusty), Scoots Warrior (aka Scooter) and Sugar Fox Otoe (aka Fred).  Had to have my all time favorite put to sleep 2 yrs ago this week -- she was 30 yrs old and had West Nile Virus.  Her nickname was Timer and she was my best friend for 23 yrs.  


Will add to the horse count this spring when babies are born and looking at getting either a Corgi or Aussie pup in the spring too!

8)  It's been fun reading about everyone's pets ... a nice break from reading all the posts about knee problems!

Take care and happy holidays to all!

One dog.  He's a Pomeranian named Maximillian.  He's a sweet dog most of the time, except when he grabs the laundry or gets into the trash can.  Then I want to kill him!! >:( ;D

Currently, I only have a Russian Blue cat who is 3.  Her name is Bailey.  This is because I am currently living in a small apartment and Bailey isn't a huge fan of other animals sharing her space.  But, when I lived with my parents, we had a pretty big yard, and through the years we had these pets

Iguana--Izzie, Blue bellied Lizard, Rabbit, Dog--Malachi, Chipmunk (it bit my dad so we had to keep it for 10 days to make sure it didn't have rabies--it learned to eat out of our hand and when it was released would wait for us outside our backdoor), and cat- Sammy.
