Hello there =)
Dogs and birds and fish! Oh my! I have always had a pet or two as long as I can remember and probably always will. I’m an animal lover and believe animals deserve a good home and lots of love. I’m just the gal to do it =)
This week I made a rather lengthy list of all the pets I have had in my life, so far. I’m going to have to work on getting some pictures up of all of them…
Pets I Have Had
#52Lists2015 List 17
Dogs. By far my most favorite of pets. I think they are the definition of unconditional love. I’ve loved and lost 4 dogs in my life at the ripe age of 32, each more painful than the last.
Brutus, a doberman Shepard mix, was like my big brother as my parents bought him a few years before I was born. We got Hershey about a year after we let Brutus go. Quite a handful he was. If you’re not ready for crazy stay away from Chocolate Labs… When Hershey was about 6 years old we adopted Halee. She was a spitting image of Brutus, it’s why I picked her out. My boyfriend adopted Butch around 2003 and we just had to let him go. The most painful thing ever. He was my baby =)
My dad and I bought Blue Bird, a blue parakeet, for my mom for some gift giving occasion. She was NOT happy. I don’t blame her. We did buy her a noisy mess for a gift.
Kiwi was a different story. My mom and I intentionally but her. She was a peach faced lovebird that enjoyed the sunshine and piano music.
Yes, I was a rodent lover. Had a handful of hamsters and my first made it to my favorite childhood memories list.
Amphibians (not listed)
Forgot to add these to my list but I did catch frogs and toads and keep them in fish tanks outside. Much to my mom’s despair, one of my cousins won a green anole (lizard) at a fair and gave it to me.
HUGE fish fanatic. It started with a single betta, grew to 5 bettas and then a few large tanks. My first few fish in my large tank were named but then crazy breeding took place and there were too many to name.
