Crazy pets working together, my crazy comedy show

When my kids were young, after buying a new home, my husband and I thought the kids would like a puppy. For Christmas, the first year we lived in the new house, my husband came home with a 5 week old Sheltie. For people that do not know what breed that is, it is a miniature Collie. My kids were 4 and 5 1/2. They loved her. As years went on, our animals grew and grew. We had adopted kittens and they had litters and we ended up keeping one from that litter. We then bought a 6 week old Newfoundland. They are the dogs that look like big bears. A few years later I went to the dog show in New York City and ended up hearing about Newfoundland's that were in rescue shelters. I had to get one. She was 8 years old and very overweight. All the animals got along very well together, in fact, the first cat we ever got was a pro at opening the closet door under the sink and when she did that, the Sheltie would get her nose in the closet and pull out dog bones that were in a box. We had a real comedy show with all of them and now I am retired and have no animals. I do miss not having one or two pets but it wouldn't be right as we travel a lot and I would not leave them with anyone or any place.

You did the right thing by not having pets as socialising and pets do not go hand in hand. I do not socialise just because I have Preiti to care for.

@allknowing It is great to have pets. I do miss that but I know it is not the time for me to have any. I do visit my daughters cat, which is 11 years old and the cockatiel that my grandson has had for about 6 years. He is funny as he doesn't stop talking to us when we get there. He will start whistling New York, New York as my husband use to be in a drum corps and they played that.

We have traveled a lot during all our life, so we never had pets.

That is smart. That is where we are now. It wouldn't be right for the animals although I do miss having them.

@ramapo17 When you travel all the time you cannot have animals and kids.

We don't have a cat any more for the same reason and I also wouldn't want it killing our small birds.

I had cats and birds at the same time and the cats never went after the birds. The dogs never went after the cats either.
