    1)ZORA = Dec 71- had to be given away. Dogs not allowed in condos'. He woould only come if I yelled cookie, didn't listen to me at all. But he did chase away an attacker by humping his leg. He was a keeshond. We were looking up names on the greyhound bush. He should have been named Zorro (male)

    2) BAMBI -Dec 75-Feb 5/86 water on heart-put to sleep. Followed our daughter about

    3)RICKY=Jan 86-July 17/99 too ill couldnd't stand up, tryed to walk off balcony. put to sleep. A very royal looking fellow. Would look down his nose at something he didn't approve of.  Pic from Feb/89

    4)STRYPER=July 88-Sept 10/04  We were camping when we got the news. I broke down & bawled right at the yogi station. Daughter took care of him. a big boy. Weighed 22 lbs at end. He seemed to get sick every time we went camping but was fine when we came back each time. Not that time. Pic taken May/99

    Now we have Callie age 8, Aug 1 & Buttons 5

    Beautiful animals Pat. It's amazing how each one touched our lives. This was Roy, our German Shepperd/Lab mix. Had him for 11 years, then his digestive issues got too much for him, had to put him down this past summer. We attempted surgery first, and over a thousand dollars later, it wasn't enough. A week after his surgery, we had to end his pain. He was my dad's best friend, his camping buddy. It's so different with him gone...

    My first fur baby was Maggie, a beagle.  She was about 7 mos. when our friends found her in the street.  They couldn't keep her, and one night we were over their place for dinner and Maggie adopted us right then and there!  She was my son's playmate, my therapist, and our all-around best friend.  She had bouts of cancer on and off for several years until we finally had to put her down at age 13.

    Several years later, hubby and I decided we wanted a dog and lo and behold another friend had found a puppy in their garage!  They came home from work one evening and she was there, no idea how she got in but there she was.  Pixie was a miniature poodle, all of 8lbs. soaking wet with 108lbs. of attitude.  She pushed the limits further than any child I knew (including me!).  I can't tell you how many time I had her in the car, on the way to the shelter when she'd give me that "I'm sorry, I love you" look together with a pathetic whine.  Yep, I'd turn the car around every time.  Pixie turned out to be the most precious dog and valued member of the family you could imagine!  She had serious heart problems and epilepsy, both treated with meds.  At 12, she had kidney failure and we nearly lost her.  She pulled through and lived another 4 years.  Finally, at 16, her heart got so big it affected her breathing, her lungs filled up with fluid and we knew it was time.  She's buried in our yard under a special river rock carved with her name, dates of birth and death, and a poodle.

    We waited a year to get another dog (actually were not going to get another one).  For reasons known only to God, we went into a Petco, and immediately spotted Collette, a poodle mix and brought her home.  She's 7 now, and is loved dearly. She's sweet, calm, and perfect for us.

    this is my pet snake, Artie. who just passed away last night. only had him for 3 years. got him in 2010 when Artie was 2 years old, nice and very healthy. and for the past 2 months, i've been having a problem of him not eating. everytime he ate, he would throw up his meal. i feed him large mice all the time. then Artie would throw it up, then i went down to smaller size mice. still could not keep it down. i'am guessing it was stomach problems he was having.  then it got to the point where Artie got really skinny, he was gonna die if he kept this up. but around last night, he passed away in his sleep. Artie was only 5 years old when he passed. but i'am happy he's not suffering anymore. i've buried him under the rock garden in the front yard.

    I agree with Darla, Artie was a beautiful snake. I am not a snake person, myself, but my nephews both have several. I don't not like them, just don't want one myself. As a kid I used to have snakes as pets. Especially ones that we had in MS, which I can not think of the name of -- small green ones! Thank you for sharing his pictures with us.

    I ditto everyone, Snakes are very interesting creatures, beautiful to look at.I like the rose colouring on this one. The only snakes I've held are gardner snakes, They are the only ones I've ever seen or came in contact with in Ontario

    I have never seen a rose colored one. I meant to comment on that. I think the ones we played with were garter snakes too.

    Here is one of my Parrot Pepe. He is an African Grey. We got him when he was a year old. We have had him for about 27 years now. African Greys have lived to be 75 or older when kept as a pet. He is a mean guy! But talks up a storm. He will tell us good morning in the morning and when he thinks it is time to go to bed, or he hears me turn off my computer at night, he will say "Time to go night night." If our dog goes to the back door he will say "Do you want to go outside?" You never know what he is going to come up with next! Our vet and his staff love to get to keep him, while we go on a trip. But they know to not let anyone get near him because he loves to bite!

    I guess he picks up words easily. Have to watch what you say, no swear words


    Present too then? Alright :)

    This is my 4 yr old black lab/husky Rambo. Had him for 3 years now, and it's like watching a child grow into a teenager. He's calming down now though, what a relief!

    When my Callie was just a wee lassie, the calico up top, she would jump on the desk & try to bat the screen whenI was playing games & then later when I dicovered eagles & falcons, she woyuld try to find them by going behind the monitor. She grew out of it. thankfully

    Derek, I love your cats and I love the Lab too rubbertoots. My lab was so upset last night when I came home and his daddy was not with me! He was so excited tonight when we both came home.

    Thanks guys. I just love how each animal has its own personality, and it makes them who they are. They're goofy, funny, adorable, and can drive us crazy sometimes. But they sure know how to make us happy! Such beautiful animals on this page :)

    This is my new kitten, Oreo. Such a little cutie! She was an abandoned kitten. I first heard her meowing at 5:00am. She meowed all day and night, we put out some food and milk, then we took her in the next day. Since then, she's been very happy. She's between 4 - 6 months old. All I can say, I'm happy she picked us. She's gonna have a happy and healthy life with us now.
