1 German Shepherd

4 Cats - 3 siblings my wife and daughter rescued after seeing the mother hit and killed by a car about 8 years ago.  (They have some serious digestive issues where they strategically puke between my bed and the bathroom), and the other is a stray that came to the house as a kitten about 5 years ago.  (It has no digestive problems and is mentally correct unlike the others)

55 gallon aquarium full of a variety of fresh water fish

I feed about a half dozen squirrels off of a 2 feeders on my deck, and another one out in a tree near the river.

2 Finch feeders - Primarily Social and Goldens feed off them

2 cracked grain feeders that draw in Cardinals, Blue Jays, and sparrows.

Well, first and foremost we have the Big Red Dog...

she's a shepherd and chocolate lab mix...    the lab covers one end of the temperament range and the shepherd the other...  but she' one of the prettiest dogs you'll ever look down and see chewing on your leg 8* 8* 8*

We also have a black lab mixed with maybe beagle...  not sure but he loves to chase rabbits and watch squirrels so we're thinking beagle...

and we have a pure bred English Setter for hunting birds...

and a pure bred stratford terrier...   he's kind of young but learning fast 8* 8* 8*

We have one cat we've had for 10+ years and 3 we've had for a few months...

and a whole woods full of wild critters that changes from day to day I'm sure :) :) :)

Two female cats.  Right now I'm cat sitting for my girlfriends little sister.  He's a male and they do not like him.  I cannot wait for that cat to get out of my house.

I wanted to get a standard poodle, black, but I don't have the time for one.

I'm sorry to hear that, Monique. When we lose a pet, we lose a part of our family.  :(


Here, we have....


3 puppies - Buster (about 70lbs, all muscle) is a German Shorthair, Kayla (about 80lbs, all muscle) is a Black Lab Mix (we're not sure what else because we rescued her, but we're thinking either Rot or Pit), and Live... a big puppy! ;)  ;D

1 bunny - Max :)

We have a dog that we rescued - has the look of a Pit, but more likely not as he doesn't have all the features...  biggest baby of the family as he was likely abused as a pup, but he's got the look and bark to strike fear into anyone who wanders into our house.   
He thinks he's a Retriever as he will play stick fetch all day.
Smart too - as he goes out to do his business in the field never the yard (well sometimes in the flower bed if its raining) 

Outdoor Cats... necessary evil - we try to keep them to about 4 or 5. 

The squirrels, birds and other guests to my patio feeders are fun to watch year round.

If you don't have outdoor cats on the farm you're going to have lots of mice :o :o :o :o :o :o

3 cats.

Mischief (The Mom cat and very thin, loves to lay on your lap)
Mittens (She's got one extra claw on each foot, and she's the moose cat, likes her belly rubbed but doesn't like to be picked up)
The One (She's a middle weight, more affectionate than the other two and a supreme bed hog)

Zero!

Same here. 

I used to have a Black Lab/Springer mix who was beautiful and a wonderful protector and a couple of cats who were also beautiful and SO smart.  I would love another pet, but my heart breaks too badly when they pass on. Like you said ATG, they are family members.   I can't do that anymore.

But I love cats and dogs and love seeing all the "love" listed here.

Where does all that love and attention get diverted to in the absence of pets?   ;)
