What was the best Pet you have ever had? It can still be living now!

    What was the best Pet you have ever had? It can still be living now!

    Did it give you comfort, fun, was it a companion? Did you spend lots of years loving it?

    I had twin black cats - Cleopatra and Nefertiti - who are no longer with us. They were bonkers and would egg each other on to do naughty things!

    My cat Lucky lived to be 25 years old during a very important time in my life...this is why Lucky is used in my name here.  I have so many rescued animals and they are all very important and very loved.  Little One is a special case; s near death when I found her...that was 11 years ago and she's still like a kitten.  Smoky Mama is special; so brave in a harsh world...extremely pregnant when I found her...she and kittens are all doing very well. Pinky, Brandy,..oh, so many.  I can't pick out one...so, I must say  All are the best for so many unique and individual reasons.  Thank you.

      Twenty five years - wow.  That must have been a horrible loss after such a long time with you. I didn't know cats live that long.

      Yes, loosing Lucky was very hard  I have license plates and other "identities" which honor her and, in my backyard is "Lucky's Garden" where she and other companion animals rest..25 is very old for a cat but, amazingly, some have lived longer.

      I am not a cat lover, however these experiences and memories are precious to you and I respect it. I am a lover of dogs and horses, both of which I have owned in the past. And you are very welcome. You are a very special individual for helping them

    My chocolate lab Duffy.  He was the most wonderful dog.  Such a clown, strong and steady and rarely barked - unless there was a moose in the backyard, that got him going! He died last August, at home, 13 years, 4 months. Man I miss that dog!  He was my best buddy.

      Hi Duffsmom...I know how you feel and felt at the loss of Duffy...and now, I understand your moniker.  I totally sympathize with you

      a Moose? You must live in Alaska? I see lots of Moose on Alaska State Troopers TV show... great answer!

    The first of my Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Maddie.  Funnily she was a "ridgeless" Ridgeback, and I was forever being asked about that oddity.  She was a comedienne and would have me roaring with laughter at her antics.  Maddie seemed fearless and  was a wonderful companion and guard.  She loved everything and everybody.  There was one occasion when a salesman came to my door and her hackles were up and this deep throated growl came out.  On that behaviour I asked him to immediately leave my premises.  I was lucky enough to have her for 14 years and still miss her nearly 10 years later.  Presently I have two other female Ridgebacks who are wonderful and keep me entertained.

    That would be my white American Bulldog named Ruby.  She was the sweetest dog ever!  She'd let you do anything with her (as in playing), but she wouldn't let anyone do anything to us!  She was always right there when I needed some comfort and she was very obedient!
      My poor Ruby died of what we think was a heart attack about two years ago!  I still miss her! smile

    My dog.

    It has kept us company for the last 5 years and being a dog, it is a good companion.

    It does tricks to keep the children happy.

    I loved them all, but the favorite would be a toss-up between the Maine Coon I had for 13 years and the one who's in my avatar pic

      The kind of dog you go Hunting with! I haven't seen one since I was 7 years old, they are real good peaceful dogs too.

      Diane:  no, a Maine Coon is a large breed of cat  smile

      I think what you mean is a Coon Hound- a dog that's something like a Beagle?

    My family dog growing up: she was a shih tzu/poodle mix. Sweetest dog in the world, she used to sleep with me every night. She passed away last christmas, she was fourteen.

    I had a Poole and don't think he thought he was a dog.
