We have 2 dogs who happen to be littermates, Sam and Spike. Their mother was an Irish Setter mix. Sam is 75 pounds and looks very much like a Golden Retriever. Spike is 95 pounds and has the body of a lab and the head of a setter with the curly hair of a black setter (sort of in spots around his body). They will be 4 in November.

We also have a part time dog that actually lives across the street but begs to come inside every time the weather is bad (she is an "outdoor" dog). Her name is Vader and other than a little bit of Rottie, we have no clue what she is and her owner doesn't know her age as she was a freshly spayed stray when she wandered up to their house a few years back. For a poor dog that was handed the life of an outdoor dog, she is very well behaved and likes to sleep under the coffee table. We've told the neighbor that we would adopt her from them but they aren't willing right now. She runs the neighborhood when she's outside.

I had four fish until some crow figured out they where there a couple weeks ago. Now I have two. I'd babied them along for 8 years.

I have 12 cats:

1 dog named Dobber

1 miniature donkey, Petie

1 miniature horse, Samie

1 llama, Dolly. (get it?)

A cat that's been showing up regularly at the barn for dinner...Tux.

A kitten I found on the road this weekend.

I sold my horse, but would like to get a mule.

The end.

Geez, I thought we were offering a small petting zoo in our home, but a lot of you put me to shame!!!

Let's see...

Obviously, the 3 cats...Fergus, Ripley, and Captain Steuben.

Then, the 3 dogs...Melvin (7 yr old golden retriever), Puppy (lab/chow/rottie mix), and Rita (8 week-old basset hound pup).

What can I say? We're equal opportunity pet owners...we have the best of both worlds!

Besides my 2 cats, I also have a Senegal Parrot called Jasper. He (although I've never had him DNA tested, he could be a she) is very very loyal and devoted to me, and jealous of any attention I give to others or that I receive myself. He chose me by screaming loudly and regurgitating for me when he first laid eyes on me, and I couldn't ignore such a poignant plea to be with me. He's about 5 now and still doesn't have his adult eye colour, he's still a baby. I hope he will be with me (and I with him!) for the next 30 years! He talks a bit, Sennies are not really known for their ability to speak, but he has a few phrases that he uses, and he understands much more besides what he has learned to say. He likes to give kisses and a bit of mutual grooming. He's a one person bird and will only let me touch him, he's cuddly with me but I fear he may savage others.

I have one dog, a Lab and his name is Tal
post #45 of 63
I have a total of 23 animals: (I wish that total included a cat)
starting with the guinea pigs(16)
Girls: Baby aka Butterscotch -she is around 6 years old,
Mouse- around a year old.
Reeces- around a year old.
Aurora aka Roro- Rescue and the oldest. I think shes almost 7 if not already.
Tsunami- found under a car and was turned into a shelter.
Daisy- Roommate abandoned her and her companion, Dory.
Java- Mamas grandpiggy and born on September 20, 2006 by Cherrios.
Mama aka Scarlett- the mama of Cherrios, Sox, Admirale, Skittles, Antonio and Camile and is probably a year and a half.
Cherrios- was born on May 7, 2006,
Camile- same age as Antonio

Boys: Bear aka Attackofthebear- he's around a year,
Antonio aka Pretty Boy - probably a year and three months.
Admirale Wolverine Lightening Bolt- born on May 7, 2006,
Sox- born May 7, 2006
Skittles- born on May 7, 2006
Mocha- born on September 20, 2006 by Cherrios and Mamas grandpiggy.

Two bunnys- Sugar aka bunny girl is a lop mix and is a girl.
Waffle aka bunny boy is a dutch mix and is a boy.
They are both fixed.

Three dogs- Yogi Bear aka Horse- great dane and hes around 18 months.
Lucy aka Moose- Black Lab mix and is around 10 years old.
Bosco aka Cow- Brown Lab mix and she is also around 10 years old.

Two fish: They are both called fishy wishy.
One is a female beta and the other is a male beta.

The reason my family has so many piggies is partially due to a guinea pig that was returned to the petstore. That would be Mama. She already had two babies, which were Camile and Antonio when we got her but aound a month after we got her we noticed she kept getting bigger around the middle. Well, we took her to the vet and she was preggers with four little guinea pigs. She gave birth and at three weeks we separated them from her. We had already started sexing them but we mistaked one and ended up with Mocha and Java. The only reason I found out she was a girl was because it was three in the morning and I couldnt sleep so I decided to go hold a piggy. I choose the babies to hold but when I picked her up, she just felt different because all the others were boys. I held her almost all night after questioning if it was a girl and when I was 100 percent sure that my family had made a mistake I put her into the girls cage and shes been happy ever since. The first thing she did was lay down. Anyway she was put on preganacy watch and she gave birth to two piggys on September 20, 2006, but since that night there have been no more pregnant guinea pigs in my house. Atleast ones that are my fault.

Dory, Daisy's companion, passed away a month after we got her.

I can't post pictures yet but I will as soon as I can.

I tryed not quoting the whole thing but I couldnt figure it out. Anyway, I am quoting you because I notice you dont know how to sex your guinea pigs. I have included a link below to an accurate site that will explain how to tell which guinea pig is what gender. I would have pm this but you have no contact information.
It may not hurt becoming a member of the site because you have quite a few guinea pigs. The site offers accurate information about guinea pigs.

My previous message won't allow me to edit.

I just found out about guinea fowl and that is the way you tell their sex. I got worried because I've never heard of guinea fowl and didn't know about them. The only animal I knew of that had the name guinea in it was guinea pigs. All I can ask is that you specify which guinea you mean next time. Thanks and sorry for the trouble.

We have the 3 cats plus one Lhasa Apso puppy.

My kids would like to get guinea pigs and snakes, but I just don't have the time to clean cages right now, so no caged pets for us!
post #53 of 63
I have 3 cats:

Bestia-female, tortie, 1 1/2 years old

Cleopatra- female, calico, 10 months old

Binx- male, gray tabby, 4 months old

3 ferrets:

Benny- male, sable, 2 years and 2 months old(approx.)

Ziggy- male, silver roan, 8 months old

Oso Cute- male, champagne point, 6 months old

2 sugar gliders:

Sugar- female, standard color, 2 years old
Spice- male, standard color, 2 years old

I'm also hoping to add a hedgehog(or 2) in the future. I'm not sure why, but I really have a facination with "exotic" animals.

I used to have a puppy a couple months ago, his name was Prince Charming and he was a pit mix. However, I found out on my first vet visit that it is illegal to own pit bulls here so I had to rehome him to a family in a nearby city(pits are legal to own there).

Those are beautiful tanks!
post #59 of 63
Thank you! It's a very addicting hobby, & the fish seem so much happier-it's neat to watch them swimming around in all of the plants with the nice soft leaves instead of the hard plastic ones. If you ever really get into planted tanks, the plastic plants will never be the same.

Right now I only have 2 cockatiels (Kodi and Koda), but in a few weeks will be adopting 2 cats. I use to have 2 cats (Midnight and JC), but they died 2 years ago and the age of almost 20 years.

The other animals I have had in the past have been 3 rabbits, 4 iguanns, fish, frogs, hermit crabs, hamsters, etc.

There are 2 animals that I have ALWAYS wanted, but have never had: a dog and a horse!!!! Maybe someday I will get them (well at least a dog)!!!!!
