this evokes nostalgic memories. my first pet, that i could remember of we called him "tulin" which means speed. he was a male regular white dog. i was 7 or 8 at that time. he was really like part of the family - eats the same food we eat, romps around our rooms like us kids then. my mom & my bros always made sure he was cleaned all the time. he was always a happy dog, plays with us kids a lot too whenever we were at the backyard. we also bring him a lot during outings. then just one night, vivdly i could still remember, "tulin" was fidgety & howling a lot, i could not know why then but my mom got irratated & had scolded him badly, which later she sent him out of the house. we never saw him the following day. my mom felt bad, she felt she was one to blame for "tulin" being gone. days passed by, we were always lookin out the window, lookin at our backyard, frontyard, the pavement near our house anticipating that he is back, maybe somewhere around the corner. everytime we hear barkings, we would almost cry out & sometimes murmur "hes back!" but sadly "tulin" was never to be found or heard again. we never really knew why. even to this day whenever me & my brother kinda reminesce it, it evokes sad memories. and even to this day its a taboo subject in front of my mom - even so 25yrs after.

My first pet was a duck, and I do not remember naming. I was a afraid of him. Then I had a cat. He was an orange-haired cat with yellow eyes. I named him Charlie Brown. He was a cat about town. He was always chasing female cats. He loved to sleep on top of the freezer.

My first pet was a female hamster named "Kuleczka" - it means "a little ball" in English. She was a little, soft, lovely ball in my eyes:) I remember, that I was crying a lot watching her photos when she passed away. I was about 11 or less years old. I have had many pets, but I remember all of them quite good.
