    My brother and I had a pair of rabbits when we were little - "Foggy" (gray) and "Tangerine" (gold/orange color). My grandfather gave them to us when I was about 9 years old. He told us they were both females, but we found out otherwise very quickly, if you catch my drift...hahaha

    My first pet was a rabbit and a few baby chicks for Easter.I was about 4-5 years old at the time. The baby chicks were so cute and cuddly.The rabbit was a different story. To me he was huge and frigidity and hard for me to hold, since he was so big.
    Close up was too close for me at that age. I suppose he could feel my fear of him.

    I still think about that rabbit to this day and I am a bit leary of them.I thInk you have to introduce a small child to these pets slowly and not as a gift in the sense that "okay here it is".

    My personal pet? A turtle. I still don't remember what his name was but I've adored turtles ever since. The family pets were always dogs. Dachsunds usually.

    We adopted a stray black cat when I was 7, aptly named Blacky. She was the very first pet we ever had but not the last. She used to follow us around the neighbourhood where we lived. She eventually worked up the courage to come inside the house and from then on she was ours.

      What a lovely gesture, Blacky must be quite content and happy.

    My first pet was a black Alsatian dog called Lucy. When I was a toddler we lived on a canal boat and I couldn't swim. She was very protective of me and even saved my life when I fell in the water and my parents weren't looking. I was very lucky to have such a wonderful dog, and I miss her very much. We were always together, she was more like a sister than a pet. I pray that she is resting in peace x
