    Here is where we can brag about, complain about, mourn or rejoice over our pets.

    Let us know what pets you have, or have had, or hope to have, and whatever tips you may have.

    We just got rid of a rabbit (finally). It was nice but just too much of a chewer to let loose all the time like we wanted to. Never could break him.

    We have a cat named Persia. She's long haired but doesn't shed badly and is extremely sociable. My 11 year old daughter actually BATHES the cat! :eek: She meows about it but takes it anyhow! She's indoor/outdoor and still has all her weapons.

    We also have a beta. He swims happily on the kitchen counter in a vase with some bamboo shoots. Well behaved, pretty blue and red.

    We are about to get a new addition as well. His name is "Mugzy" at the moment but that is just to differentiate him from his puppy brothers and sisters. Once we get him we will give him a proper name. He is an Olde English Bulldogge. He will only be about 18" tall, but will weigh in around 55-75 pounds! Butch! We'll get him around the 18th of November. That'll make him about 9 weeks old. Here is a pic of him right now (about three weeks old):

    Yeah, my cat is pretty cool. She still loves to hide under the bed and attack your feet! She is a lovey cat. Loves to be held and petted. She stopped using the litterbox about a week ago. She has pretty much turned into an outdoor kitty who just comes in for food and love.

    Well, I think you've all met my pet's personalities on the Denver boards (expect for Olive Oil our gold fish who is losing her color!)

    Dogme - The real life Dogme's name is Iceobel. She is a black lab mix. We have never been sure what the mix is. It was thought to be shepherd or pointer or pit or goat ;). She is a great dog. Very protective of us but extremely friendly expect to people she doesn't trust. She knows a few tricks like shake, stay, sit, lay down, and highfive. If she sees you eating a popsicle, she goes nutz with trying to give you a high five so that you'll give her some popsicle. She is also in charge of keeping the real life Puttytatme inside and keeping our yard free of birds and snakes.

    Puttytatme is a white cat with a tiger striped mask and cape. His real name is Dr. Edmonton aka Eddie. Yesterday was his 14th birthday. He is unique with both front paws having 6 toes and an opposable thumb. When I lived in a converted barn back in CT, he used to catch mice and bring them to me . . . still alive. He is very funny with his antics. He meows at the top of his lungs if he wants something, complains loudly about his weekly bath [face_mischief] and can say "Mama" [face_shocked]

    You can see picture of the two at my website.

    mr. beans is cool :p

    my parents have 2 dogs, a white bishon (bee' shawn) named Casper...basically a different poodle, except they don't make him look like a poodle. I love that dog. They have a new one named Darcy who I think is a yellow lab or something like that. I haven't met her yet though, they got her after I got back from the desert...and I haven't went home on leave since then.

    My favorite dog ever was Barkley. He was a mutt, but he was cute and smart as hell and one of the nicest dogs I've ever known. I still miss him. :( He got his name because when he was a puppy, he ran just like Barkley from Sesame Street :D

    I want another dog like him, a golden lab, or something small like a shitzu, pug, or one like josh's new one that he posted above :)

    She's a five year old Shiba Inu. Great dog. And we just got another, a puppy called Thumper, she's absolutly insane! Bounces off the walls! I swear!

    I also have some guppies that magically multiply. And my sister has a hamster.

    Well, we have 3 cats, Jezabell, Simon & Magie. Jez aka Fredie, is a little black kitty and all claws. She loves me, sleeps w/ me (no matter how much bed is left), if I come home & I don't say high, she will jump on me saying "pay attention to me!!!"
    Simon is a big grey long haired kitty, he is beutifull, looks like a grey lion (his face anyway). He loves to play with rolled up paper & X-mas is his favorite, he loves the wrapping part :D He drinks water out of anything that's not his water bowl, sleeps on his back, I think he thinks he's a dog.
    Magie is Magie!! She is her own cat, you can only pet her when she wants you to, very vocal if she wants something. Long hair, very danty, very DIVA!!!

    Dad has a Welch Springer (there other names in there, forgot what they are.) He is hyper, stupid & cute. He can sit, lay, roll-over, shake, high five or ten, go to his house & wait for a treat. The trick I taught him is to blow bubbles, it's quite funny.

    We get our puppy on Thursday afternoon! I gotta drive to Denver to pick him up.

    On the way to work today Peak 95.1 had the ladies from Animal Instincts on and were going to take one more question. I hopped on my cell, but I was second. They took my question anyway! I told them I had a new puppy coming and wanted to get off to a good start. They gave me this $160 value in-home puppy prep class! How cool is that?!

    I go pick up the little guy today! Got a water bowl, treats, leash and collar with me as well as a camera. Gonna love him up as soon as I get him so that he knows he isn't gonna spend the rest of his life in that dog crate.

    Can you tell I'm excited?

    We haven't named him yet. We've thought of Chewbacca and Artoo. But we want to meet him and get to know him a little first.

    The meeting with the ladies from Animal Instincts was AWESOME! I would highly recommend them for anyone wanting to train or change the behaviour of their dogs. They really know their stuff. Gonna put their phone number on my speed dial!
