    I had a goldfish named Goldie.  Actually, I had 3 goldfish, but 2 died immediately.  Goldie was the survivor.

    Yes it was a jack russell dog called "nosey" that used to follow me around and is in most of my toddler years photos.
    Good memories, thanks for the question.

    Yep, a long-haired orange tabby and a black-and-white short-haired cat. We lived on 20 acres, so my sister and I each got two cats and a dog -- at that age I had not yet picked my dog, I was two or three years old.

    I had a gorgeous cat called Blackie. I bet you can't guess what colour she was!She was incredibly patient. I have some lovely photos of me as a child trying to put her in my doll's pram and put a bonnet on her!

    A fish; a Red Devil. I named him Fraymond after my dad- Raymond. Added the 'F' for fish. Cried when he died- I was about 10 years-old.

    The first pet I remember was a dog named Trixie.  She had puppies, and I picked out one of the puppies as my own.  I have pictures of my brother and I with the puppies.  I must have been about four.  My parents had other ideas.  They selected a male puppy to keep.  I had picked out a female.  A man came by to look at the puppies.  He wanted the puppy I had picked out.  He offered to buy the puppy for a quarter.  It didn't seem like a fair trade, but I knew I had to give up the puppy.  We still had Trixie and her male puppy, but I was sad that the puppy I wanted was gone.

    I remember a dog called " snow" and a burn at the age of 2.

    I can't say that he was the "first", but only the first that I recall.

    My first childhood pet was a huge and handsome boxer dog named Bruno.  This is the story of Bruno and how he interacted with our family and other members of the neighborhood, etc.  I miss him so much! read more
