I have a dog, a Shih-Tzu poodle cross named Oreo who at the age of two still has not learned NOT to eat Kleenex and toilet paper. I also own an African Pygmy hedgehog named IMMA HOGG. He is an albino and is blind in one eye. Nobody wanted the poor thing, got him at the Humane Society.
I have a Labrador Retriever. Black. He's 6 and his name is Miles. We've had him since he was 3 and he's really fun to have around. But he's not very smart, as most labs go. . Miles loves to fetch, and swim, like a good lab does. He's very food oriented and will do anything for food. Literally. he got the command "shake" down in a flash as soon as he knew there was food involved...He feeds off of high energy. My sister and I are always active around the house and he just gets up and runs around with us. Mom hates it. So does dad. He has never slowed down in his life. He's getting close to that age when most dogs start enjoying a long nap doing nothing. Not Miles! Hehe.
Does my VFT count as a pet? You can feed it and take care of it....?
Leah and I have two cats, Bear and Turtle. Bear was named so because he looks like a bear. He has no tail and is all black (though he does have stripes you can see when the sun hits him directly). Here's a video of him right after we got him: www.youtube.com/…
He's much more coordinated now and much larger. He's very outgoing and into everything.
Turtle got her name because she tries to hide all the time in her shell, at least she did when we got her. She was a street kitty and afraid of everything. Now she only gets afraid when other people come into the house.
okay, ya'll probably know by just looking at my screen name that I'm crazy about kittens. Well, I do love cats, but I've had many other pets as well, and I love them all equally! well, mostly lol.
My first actually was a cricket... lol that sounds pathetic, but it's true! His name was Chirper. When I was 3, I got a little yellow chick and a lobster. I named the chick Deedee. She would always follow me around, but the lobster pinched me so my granny sold it to some old guy at the chinese fish market...lol Since then I've had lots of reptiles, alot of different birds, a few amphibians, a dog, and ofcourse felines!
