Yes but puppies have the most DIVINE puppy-smell in the world! It's like the smell of a little baby, you just can't get enough of it. Max and I are constantly sticking our faces right into Ruby's neck and having a big sniff - she has the best, warmest, sweetest, homiest (?) smell ever. It's like being wrapped up in a smellable hug!!

A miniature Llama

If there are such things...

otherwise I would get a minature donkey

or a full sized one. I like donkies.

Miniature ponies are cute too.... but the donkeys are better

Ooooh I used to keep betas. They're mint, aren't they? I love in particular the way that when you go up to the tank to say hello they come right up to the glass and wave their little side-gills at you! They are ULTRA cute I'm thinking about getting some more soon...
Nooo. I think I have to have a different opinion on Betas.... they dont think "Oh.. hello there person" They are thinking more along the lines of "If you dont ffreaking feed me I swear to god I will jump out of this water and down your throat, making you choke to death and invoking my revenge"

Of course... maybe my beta is just different... if he had thumbs (not to mention a very tiny dagger) I expect he would varnish it at me every chance he got, stabbing suggestively at the glass.

My beta is Fat. Fat and Hungry. His name is Mr. F. H. Fish.. or Mr. Fish for short... or Mr. Fat Hungry Fish for long.

Floppy earred bunnies... "mini lop"...

I had a pet mini lop named Mr. Kickers... white with a smudge of black on his nose, deep brown eyes. He was so sweet, funny, smart. Loved sleeping under the Christmas tree with K.C. and playing with Zorro. He died when he was only 2 yrs old and I still get teary when I look at his picture by my bedstand.

So in a world without cats, I'd have 6 mini-lop buns flopping all around my house!!!

Definitely dogs. I grew up with a collie, basset hounds and a yellow lab so I love them. Would have one if I could but don't think the kitties would be too thrilled.

ummm maybe teeny tiny dogs that don't smell often. But really my ideal pet is a cat and if there were no cats I doubt I would own a pet.. although bf likes the dogs..

I admit being partial to cocker spaniels and beagles.
post #40 of 55
Dobermans and cats are both at the top of my list.

Though I also love BC's and labs are they are so goofy and funny.

I have also owned hooded and hairless rats and loved them too, though their life expectancy as someone mentioned is hard on the caregiver...

Horses are my favourite animal.
Cats are my 2nd
Dogs 3rd.

Ohhhh, I love Pomeranians, and Cocker Spaniels... they are my favorites, though so hard to choose! My puppy, Thunder was a part Semoy, and he was a big, STRONG dog, and I loved him so much! He was a good dog. I miss him.

My husband and I are huge cat people and they have always been #1 but I do have a Chihuahua on the way. I have always loved Chihuahuas. I had one when I was a teenager, 13-14, I saved the money and bought one. Well, one day my mother decided to get rid of it and sold it when I was at school and broke my heart. So, I know a breeder and I get pick of the litter I am thrilled to be getting another one and my kitties don't have to worry, they'll be bigger then the dog.

After cats? Geeezz well, my second animal is a dog, but honestly I'm not really a dog person. But that's okay, Kellie acts like a cat anyway.

I've got fish, but they're not my favorites, I really treat them more like decor, although I find them interesting to watch and very restful (when the tanks are cooperating!)

I think I'd have to say parrots, and birds in general even though I had a bad experience with a Sun Conure (screaming) when I was much younger. I love Congo African Grays, they're so intelligent, but I'm not really sure I would be able to spend enough quality time with him/her. And I think chickens are pretty cool actually.

Bunnies! Absolutely! Here is my much beloved geriatric bun who I buried on my woodlot so he'd would not be alone - there are many wild bunnies back there and my baby is buried near clover - which he loved.

Well after cats, I'd have to say fish then turtles.

I recent got a gold fish after my last betta passed on. Izzy was such a friend little fish that it broke my heart when he passed but las that is life. I though about getting another betta then decided I would prefer a fish that could be with other fish and thus the gold fish. I only have one currently but think I'll pick up another couple of them. I'm hoping they'll live a long time. I've heard tops in years for gold fish is 10 years so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

And I've always loved turtles or torist(I'm having the biggest mind block on how to spell that.) At any rate land turtles. I'd love to have a giant turtle but need to wait until I'm out of the apartment and have a yard.

Dogs are a close second here. I don't like small ones - they need to be knee-high or larger. I love mutts, particularly lab mixes or working dog mixes. Hound mixes are too independent for me, but on the other hand, I had 2 greyhounds over the years and absolutely loved those guys!

I once was owned by 5 dogs (smallest was 45 pounds and largest was 95 pounds) and 11 cats at the same time. I really went thru a lot of food during that time.

Dogs for me - I have 2 Alaskan Malamutes. I have to say I love my cats and dogs equally.

Again, I LOVE reading this guys.

Cindy, I have to tell you about this horrible commercial I watched. There was a chicken on it, and it said "Sit Chicken. Lay Down Chicken. Beg Chicken. See...chickens aren't good for anything except eating."

I seriously want to boycott that company...that's discusting. I love chickens too, I met one at a farm named Dove, and she loved to just rest on my lap and be held. She was actually quite cat-like.

Yup. My sister had one back one, we believe she was a Barred Plymouth Rock that loved people and would follow you around and come hop in your lap if you were sitting on the patio. Called her "Checkers." Sadly, we believe one of the horses stepped or rolled on her as she was pretty flat when we found her. She is still fondly remembered though.

Another thing about chickens, you can satisfy your interest in breeding or genetics without having to worry about the "world chicken overpopulation problem" .

I used to raise Bantams (Old English Game, R.I. Reds and Silkies) years ago.
Chickens make wonderful pets.
One of my roosters was a tiny black Silky that I raised in the house.
During the day, he ran around the yard with the rest of the chickens, at dusk, he'd come to the back door to be let in, and he go to roost in his cage in the laundry room.
He was so cute.

We used to have a whole bundle of wild chickens... we started feeding them corn all the time. Unfortunately, we're down to three now, because of chicken hawks. We've tried all we can, but they are wild, and we can't capture them. These last three seem to be doing pretty well, and I haven't seen a hawk in a while, now. The three we have are Charlie Jr., Belle, and "The Brown One."

I would have a dog. Not just any dog though! Too many breeds of dogs just drive me nuts so I would either want a Sheltie (grew up with one, sweetest dog I have ever known) or a greyhound. I'll most likely end up with a greyhound one day as I've been learning so much about them volunteering at Greyhound Pets of America the last few months. They're such sweetie pies and total couch potatoes!
