I have a Snowshoe cat, named Vladimir. He is the best cat I could have ever asked for! He is a rescue cat and I got him from the Humane Society in my town when he was 5 months old. Vlad is now 3 years old. :)

Never have seen such an awesome personality in a cat before. However, he is terrified of boys/men. Haha. Loves the girls though, of course.

My last pet was a parakeet (budgie). She was absolutely wonderful. She was a bright yellow color and unlike most female parakeets could talk quite a bit! Though she could be hard to understand 'cause she said most of it in a growly undertone. She would give this really cheerful chirp-chirp when she was happy.

One of the best things about her was that she knew she was my little birdie. When I was gone from my house on a youth trip or whatever she would always react to my name, chirping and looking for me. She liked to cling to my shirt sitting right by my mouth and listen to me talk to her. She would talk and whistle back, so it was almost like we were having a conversation.

I found out that I'm allergic to feathers! Makes me really sad 'cause my favorite pets are birds! (I was so used to birds as pets that one time while babysitting my neighbor's cat I whistled at it, the cat's reaction was much different than a bird's!)

I don't have any pets currently. Last ones I had were a pair of guinea pigs, called Almond and Conker. Almond was a cheeky little thing, who liked to sit on my chest and either "talk" or nibble my lips. He also liked burrowing under my top. Conker tended to be a little quieter. He was more likely to jump at sudden noises or movements, and remained quite a nervy little thing. The only time he would get vocal was at feeding time. Then they'd both squeal their heads off at me!

This is my kind of topic! Pets, pets, pets. I don't even know where to begin.

First of all, I live on 8 acres of land with huge dog runs and ect. Just so you guys don't think I'm cruel.

I have 18 dogs of my own, and another few that are just temporary until they find good homes. I'm very attached to every one of them. I even alternate them sleeping in my bed. Sometimes, it gets overwhelming. These guys are spoiled though! I live on my grandparents old property and my grandparents loved dogs just as much as I do! There's a dog house in the run that's the size of our living room, with heating, couches and ect.

I, for the most part, train my own dogs. I hate to admit it, but of course, there is one specific pooch I'm attached to. She's a Siberian Husky and her name is Mischief. I've had her since she was a puppy, for 8 years. She is absolutely precious to me.

I never intended to have so many dogs. Most of them, I was just taking in to rescue... And I grew attached.

On that note, I also have three cats and two horses.

Animals are absolutely precious to me!

Wow, that's a lot of dogs. I'd be concerned weren't it for your mention of how much room you have. No shame in having a particularly special pet.

Since summer has come, and things are heating up, we've moved Luna (the guinea pig) downstairs. She seems quite happy about it. She gets let out more in my room (my mom doesn't want her peeing/chewing in her room), and it's less stuffy.

My grandparents had a lot of dogs on the property. They used to have many Scottish Deerhounds, and a couple Great Pyrenees.

It truly is wonderful. And I'm on leave, and not able to work. It's hard to keep up with enough money but that's why I have a roommate that pays me to stay. It's working out great. But no more dogs. Not for awhile. It'll be hard enough having to figure stuff out for when I go to University this September. I just hope I can find some homes for the dogs that I'm not keeping and am just holding.

And Luna's a nice name! My cousin just got a new Guinea Pig. I think... It could be a Hamster. Pretty sure it's a Guinea Pig, lol. XD

Friendly mod reminder: this, like the others in the HoS, is an advanced discussion topic. You need to discuss your pets and tell us about them, not just list them or show pictures. Put some thought and rffort into your posts.

DracoSpectrum wrote:Very nice looking dog, my mum used to do rescue work with Boxers and before she had to stop I adopted one myself. Do you know how old yours is? Boxers (like many dog breeds) go through a naughty stage at about a year to a year and a half old but with work can grow out of it without any bad habits. They are also a breed that cant really be stereotyped, some will be happy to just sleep in a warm spot all day waiting for you to get home from work/school, many need a lot of attention and aren't very tolerant of being left alone (my parents dog is like this). I'm lucky with Turbo (my Boxer) as he is very self-sufficient, he will spend all day playing with sticks or hiding his toys and then finding them latter. He is also very low impact when I am at home (for instance he is under my bed right now hiding his toys) and his worst habit is dropping toys at your feet at inconvenient moments.


Incredibly late reply, don't check this topic often... :t-shrug:

The vet estimates based off his teeth he is around 1 to 1.5 years old. We don't know for sure considering he was just dumped off at the county park and left there to die. Roscoe does not play with things. He has bones, he won't chew on them or do anything with them. He just lays around most of the day, plays with my two little dogs, and waits for me to go outside so he can lick me to death. He has calmed down immensely since I got him though, so that's good.

Well, I have no idea how, but something (not human) opened the bird cage while dad had his parakeets sitting out on the front porch. Mom was cleaning and we had to get the animals out for a few hours, so we set them on the table. No people were around, which is what's weird about it. We were out at the horse barn unloading feed! Either way, our male got out and mom found him dead on the porch this morning, the cat got him. Now the female is alone with 2 eggs in the nest. We aren't sure about getting a new male until the eggs hatch, I'm not sure how 'territorial' birds are when it comes to babies. Just sucks and is really weird. I can't imagine he opened it himself, I mean we've had them for almost 4 months and they've never escaped before.
