Great topic Chutzie (and Char who requested it)! I have 3 dogs, 2 cats, and 1 snake. My dogs are all golden retrievers. The two girls, Cricket & Piper, are just about
7 & 6 yrs. The boy, Rory, (my baby) is 15 mo. We weren't planning on getting another dog, but he just kind of fell into our arms (long story). He is actually my dog & like Chutzie's puppy, he's a real pistil too -- too bad we don't live close enough to get together for a play date. I'm really close to all my animals, but my relationship with him is different. It's hard to describe. It's like he is my soul mate.
My two cats, Chloe, a grey tabby/calico domestic short-hair, and Sammy, a gorgeous black & white domestic long hair, are coming up on 12 yrs old. We rescued Sammy as a kitten & he is the sweetest most beautiful cat, although he's a little uncoordinated (it took him months to learn how to retract his claws - he used to get stuck on things all the time & we have to come rescue him). I think he is part Persian. He is just striking! Chloe is fat & is often very mean & nasty. She rules the roost -- she takes pleasure out of torturing the dogs. They are all scared of her!! I think that she is jealous because she wants to be a dog.
My snake, Elvis, is a 3 yr old corn snake. At school I work in a lab that breeds snakes & so he (and another snake that I used to have) came from our breeding colony. He is just the best. Many people come to me never having held a snake before, or not liking snakes. Well, after they meet Elvis, they usually change their mind about
snakes! He is the gentlest creature. Everyone loves him. My mom has actually become quite attached to him!
I could talk for hours & hours about
my animals, but I've got to head off to class!
