How many animals do you have?

What are your favorites? I have 4 dogs and 8 cats. I used to have a bunch of chickens, a goat and a pig. All of the chickens were killed by some animal that came down from the woods at night and ate them all one by one. We sold our goat and gave our pig away. When we get a little extra money we want to get some more chickens but this time we're going to do more to make sure the animals stay out of the coop. We heard that if you keep a light on inside no animals will come in because they think someone is in there. Plus I will have my big dog as close to the coop as he can get without getting the chickens himself. I also want another goat but this time I want a female for the milk. Anyway my favorite animals are cats and dogs. I don't have any children of my own so my cats and dogs are like my kids.

I have to doggies! One is a Female Beagle Mix and is a little over a year old. The other is a Male Basset Hound. He is about five months old and is a little booger! He loves to chew on anything and everything. He is doing a lot better on his potty training though!! But, I think that I prefer female dogs over male dogs. I am sorry about you chickens. That was probably really depressing along with your selling of your goat and giving away your pig. We use to have two beautiful ducklings and they were soo precious! Now, I will admit they do stink, but the are sweet and adorable. I love almost all animals if they are NICE and if I get to spend time with them. But, so far I have had ducks, hamsters, dogs, cats, and ferrets(I was to young to remember). So I would have to say that my favorite animals would be dogs, cats, ducks, and hamsters!!!

Actually we do laugh about it now. You should have seen him one time when he had to catch the pig. He jumped on his back and rode him like a dog, lol. It was funny! :)

you think its difficult to raise such a small amount of animals? boy are you soft. try raising 250 baby bucket calves. i tell ya, that is hard work. they have the stages the small sicknesses that happen the first weeks of their lives, the vaccianations they have to get, the time it takes to feed them (4 hours+) some weak, some strong, some fighten easy causeing them to jump into other pens and upsetting other, some just bounce becase they want to. then try to wrestle them into crates and then to dehorn and castrate. i honestly dont think you can handle it. ♣

I have four dogs, one puppy and thirteen cats. The dogs are ages six,three and seven weeks. They are a lab/rot mix and they are inside dogs. The cats range in ages of 8 years and 6 months. I love all animals but cats and dogs the most. My house seems like a zoo most of the time but I couldn't imagine it any other way.

I don't have too many pets now... the least I've had for yearssss actually. I have only two dogs, Cleopatra and Ginny. I've had up to six dogs at a time and up to four cats at one time. Plus a myriad of birds, including budgies.

Well I guess you could say they are your dogs and cat. They come to eat everyday and once you feed them they claim you. :)

Those pets sounds like fun to take care! Too bad I live in the city. I keep about 7 goldfish, a turtle, and about a few hundred freshwater shrimps. Those count as animals, right?

Yeah I would say they count as animals. Do you keep the shrimp as pets? I've never heard of pet shrimp before. that's pretty cool though.:)

I have 2 dogs, 2 kittens, 2 turtles, 2 birds, 1 iguana, 2 fish tanks full of all kinds of fresh water fish, salt water is too time consuming, but maybe one day. I also feed about 8 stray cats.

wow you have lots of animals. My husband wants an iguana or a snake. I don't like them but told him maybe. So you might as well say those 8 stray cats are yours then cause once you feed them they never go away, lol. :)

What kind of puppy do you plan on getting? My dog had a couple of litters and they were all so cute. I was able to get rid of all but 1 and we kept her. :)

I like parakeets but they are often noisy. I don't really like frogs. I just don't get into reptiles and amphibians. :)

We have three dogs, and two Siamese cats. They are all rescue animals. I wouldn't have it any other way. There are so many that need a good home, and we can offer one. You can often get purebred aniamls there too, if that's what you want. So, something for everyone, eh?
