When I was growing up we had a little black poodle and some parakeets,gold fish, and a cat. My favorite was the little black poodle. I loved playing with him and hugging him.He would lick my face and I thought that was real funny. Poodles are so cute and they do not get real big. What was your favorite pet when you were growing up and why or do you have a favorite pet now? Do you think all children should have a pet when they are growing up why?

I do believe I prefer cats over dogs. However, I am more allergic to cats than dogs :D So I have no choice but to choose dogs over cats. I am interested what having a meercat would feel like though. I wonder if there are domesticated meercats. And I wonder if I am also allergic to those :) Thanks for the response on my discussion!

My first dog I ever had was a female pomeranian when I was 10 years old. I named her Pearl. I loved that dog till the end!! I now have a dog, 2 cats and 2 parakeets whom I love very much. But you never forget your first pet!! :(

You are right you never do forget your first pet. I did love all the other pets I had but not liked the first one.

kids should always have a chance to have a pet. but they should also be taught how to treat animals with care and love. i had a couple of puppies but my mom would always find some reason to get rid of them. i always wanted a cat but mom would not let me have one. when i got old enough tho, i got my first kitten, grew into a cat and it was the best favorite thing for 2 yrs, then my first hubby who was a mamas boy had him get rid of it. i never forgave him. one of our marriage breakers.

sorry to hear you had to get rid of your cat and about your puppies when you were growup. kids do need to learn how to take care of there pets what they should do and not do.
