Lisa is our hostess for Fun Monday this week and she wants us to show our pets.
Daniel and I have had a lot of pets over the years. As I was always a cat lover and he was a dog lover, we have learned to compromise. The animals we have at this time is 4 dogs, a cat, a bird and a lot of fish.
5-6 years ago (I have no since of time, so I get confused on dates, that why I can't really remember exactly how long we have had Sammie)a friend of ours gave us Sammie, because their land lord would not allow them to have a dog. Dan Dan have a soft spot for animals so we gladly brought her in. At 1st she was an inside dog, which she was for a long time. Every now and then we would put her on a chain right out side the door step to get fresh air, because here in town we have a leash law. We never intended to allow her to have babies, but never got her fixed, soooooo. 3 years ago we had her out on the chain and I kept telling Dan she was going in heat and he told me I didn't know what I was talking about, so during us home schooling one day, the kids and I got a 101 on how dogs hook up. The neighbor's dog had got loose. Sammie had 13 babies that December. (I remember that time because it was our 1st year of home schooling. LOL) We were going to get rid of all the puppies, but the cat we had at that time got hit by a car, so I allowed each child to have a puppy. Don't ask me why 3 puppies have to replace 1 cat, but that's how it worked out. DJ named his KoJo, JB named his Buddy and KB named hers Vicious Rex. They all 4 stay in a pen in the back yard and every once in a while we will clean Sammie up and bring her in.
Our Cat: I have always loved cats, but there is something with this one. He is mean, but My little brother had gave KB a cat for her birthday one year and we were giving all the kittens a way, but before I gave them all away, the momma cat got in my van. I heard her when I got 1/2 way of where I was going and had planned on shutting the door before she could get out, but it didn't happen that way. So, we landed up with this mean cat.
My sister in law bought 2 birds, then decided that they were too much trouble, so I told her to bring them here. The other bird died last year, but this one is still hanging in there. We have had her about 4 years.
Our Fish: KB wanted some fish for her 10th birthday, so we got her a lot of pretties. The all have died since, but a friend of ours gave her some guppies. I now know why they did, they multiply like crazy!
(Don't have picture of the fish because I need to clean the tank)
I couldn't end this post with introducing my mom's new play pretty. She bought her Border Collie for Christmas for she wouldn't get lonely. Her cat came up missing about 2-3 months ago, so she has decided to get a puppy. His name is Topper.
OH! Maw's (Dan's grandmother) horse she raised from a baby because here mom abandoned her.
And last but not least, my biggest pet of all. My big ole bear! LOL! He is hairy and can be a mean ass, but sometimes is nothing but a teddy bear.
