We are almost a hobby farm. If we had land and fencing and extra money, there is no telling how many animals my husband and I would adopt. Today we have one lizard, eight dogs, one cat and one bird. We used to have two squirrels and almost seven cats and at one place in time, 11 dogs! How many different kind of animals do you have?
Just 3 large troublesome dogs that I love dearly. Years ago we had tons of animals but our climate is severe so taking care of them at our age (60's) is a hassle in winter so we stick to our canine babies.
Cats and dogs, squirrels and deer, rabbits, a few field mice, lots of birds....!! Well, actually, in California, I have cats...in SE Kansas, we have cats and dogs...and in both places...so many beautiful wild creatures...swallows who return to their nests each year, deer who munch on the greenery, rabbits galore...and more....beautiful animal kingdom on many levels.
Currently one dog and one spiney, soft-shelled turtle. I got the turtle when I was a kid on a whim. It was the size of a quarter and now it is around 9 inches in diameter and apparently they live a really long time. It is pretty neat, but turtles are messy!
I have one parakeet, a saltwater tank with many fish and marine life in it, and a boxer dog named Buster.
I've had many pets throughout my life...several dogs, cats, hamsters, bearded dragons, and birds. My most beloved pets were my dogs. They all felt like members of my family and when one dies it is like losing a member of our family.
The Boxer I have now I adopted from PAWS. He is a great pet and I saved him from being put down. He was a couple of days away they told me. It would have been such a loss to put down such a smart, friendly. loving, special dog like Buster!
