I'm sure there are a lot of us that have pets. Seeing a post in the Two Lies and a Truth thread of someone's doggy, thought it might be fun to get to know who has pets and share funny/goofy/entertaining stories about our four legged friends (or maybe they have 5 legs), anyways you get the point.

I wanted to introduce you all to my little one. She likes to dress up and wear clothes, she doesn't like peanut butter (which I still find odd), but loves to eat bread.

This is Emmy:

She was dressed up as a mummy. Though she had three or so costumes, my mom went a bit nuts on the costumes. :cool:

Share a little about your pets, pictures and stories welcome!

My foxy terrier benson is a rowdy little one. One night, my family and I went out to fish ad chips. As we were drivin home, we got a phone call from a person saying tey had our dog. (he likes to meet the neighbors..:p) so when I went to pick him up, the address they gave us was a HUGE house about 15 minutes from ours. So we knocked on the door, and an indian women in a really festive dress opened the door. (i was in awe..) When we went inside, there were about 100 indians inside, the kids watching a movie and the adults eating curry... Mmmmm.. :p. Benson was going around to all the kids, getting pats. When he saw me, He knew he was in trouble. He dived under the couch, but we got him. They invited us to dinner, but we refused, since we had just eaten. I was annoyed... The curry looked amazing! There we go;)

We've had betta fish for a while, but the last one just died. I was the only one taking care of it, and it was supposed to be my sons. We have plenty of rocks lol! Plus, we have to pay extra to have a pet. Funny, we're not in an apartment, but our community charges. So between the initial cost, food, vet bills, reg, and a monthly charge, I think that's a little too much for us right now. Hubby needs a raise! LOl

I have 6 cats. No I'm not the crazy cat lady. My house is exceptionally clean. I used to work at the Humane Society (cruelty prevention) and I adopted 6 kitties that no one else wanted. They all have different medical conditions, such as insulin dependent diabetes, arthritis etc. They are my "herd" of cuddle love :)

I tried uploading a picture but it's not working

This is my sister's cat - Sakura.

In Emmy's cage - she goes in there when she needs some alone time - it's the funniest thing.

http://i1190.photobucket.com/albums/z446/trens_account/SakurainEmmyCage.jpg

Dressed up - because we decided Emmy couldn't be the only one dressed up. Lets just say Sakura does not like anything on her.

Aww, that's a wonderful thing to do. My two girls are both from the DC Humane Society. Spay and neuter your pets, folks!

I'm the same way. We could probably accommodate a third kitty in the space we have but our landlord has us capped at two. Someday we're going to get a farmhouse and stuff it with cats.

I recently got a cat from the humane society. He is wonderful, and seems to be very thankful. If you do get a dog or cat, get one from the humane society, or animal shelter near you. There are so many animals out there that need homes, but people just keep buying from breeders. Also, look into older animals at the shelters, because with little kids or babies, they are gentle. Let your animal pick you. Don't get something you can't handle. O also have a dog, and 4 hermit crabs. Add me ID kinzlee

While I have 5 cats, I do not have dogs, per se.

I live on a corner lot, that occasionally is a trail for dogs that get loose from neighboring homes. I keep various meat goodies in the fridge so when a dog comes bounding by, I make friends enough to get to the phone number on the tags, or just walk them home. I love my nbr dogs & I seem to get a few repeat customers these days, ha! When my nbrs get their dogs back, I always disclose that there were a few piece of pepperoni or leftover steak involved in the ordeal. No one seems to mind & everbody's back home safely for the time being!
Critters like food!

Yes, I'm learning that the hard way. I'm like what the heck is that on his tail. Ohhh.. My old dear cat died suddenly and I burried her in my favorite fuzzy sweater. It hurt so bad and then my husband brought this little baby home. We've named him gizmo. I'm in love!
