currently, we have a male black, labrador dog, a half-persian, half-siamese, male cat, 2 african lovebirds and a dozen or more chickens in our backyard. and nope, we dont live in a farm LOL my dad just brought these chickens from his farm in the province years ago and he is breeding them. we used to have fish as pets,even an arowana, a lobster, fighting fish, a turtle and a mina bird and a cocker spaniel..how about you, what are the pets in your household? do they stay indoors or outdoors? mine stays outdoors.

wow! you have loads of pets! do you have them all at the same time? or you did not have all of them simultaneously? coz if you have them all at the same time, taking care of them would be really hard! and the pets that you own are exotic ones, i have to search the net to see how they look like and what type of pet they are! i though dwarf gouramis were rodents, based on the name..hehe now i know they are fishes. and i had no idea that degus, chinchillas, and sugar gliders were rodents.

oh ok, so you have time to take care of them , i thought you hire a pet nanny or something, i mean having 38 pets all at the same time is quite a tall order, LOL but come to think of it,the birds, rodents, and fish dont need much attention anyway, compared to cats and dogs..i noticed that the only pet missing is a dog? hehe.

A pet nanny, That sounds like a good job to have. LOL. I would love to have one or 2 dogs but we don't have a fenced in yard yet. Whenever we get that I will adopt a couple of dogs.

We have two dogs here, three types of birds and a lonely hamster. We used to have chicken as well, but we sold them already because we cannot take care of them anymore. They all stay outdoors, especially the dogs to guard us at nights. The birds and the hamster are on their cages, we put them outside the house because there are lots of space available for them..

oh i see, regarding your birds, they are only 3 so there's a "love triangle" going on there, LOL unless those 3 are all of the same gender. and for the hamster, yeah i used to have a lone hamster before, that was my very first hamster, and all he did was sleep during the day and play on the wheel at night.

oh i see, do you feed your hamsters vegetables? i used to feed them seeds and raw vegetables but unfortunately one day i think the one i fed them was infected with pesticide coz after i fed the cabbage, they all lay still in their cage.

My family has a dog and a cat. We adopted our dog from thehumane society; we think he's either a mix of a golden retriver and a black lab, or somebreed we saw on the interent called "flat-coated retriever." My dad'd friend's cat had kittens riht around the time of my 5th birthday, so my dad gave me one of the kittens. He's 11 now. :]

Right now I just have two indoor dogs -- one is a black lab/Akita mix and the other is a German red-nose pit bull. I have had many different types of pets growing up: dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, fish, snakes, guinea pigs, gerbils, turtles... I think that's it!!

Right now I have a pet bird. He is a cockatiel named Pete. We have had him for 14 years. I nicknamed him dirty bird a long time ago because he makes such a mess with his food. I am currently saving for either a shar pei or an english bulldog, but its gone to take me some time to get the money together because these breeds cost so much.
