As you may have already figured out, we are animal lovers around here.
It seems strange to be down to just one house cat.
While I was growing up, we always had pets. Ones that I remember: ponies, goats, guinea pigs, fish, birds of various kinds, hamsters and gerbils, and always dogs and cats. We've had some unusual pets, too: a skunk, a chinchilla, hermit crabs.
My grandparents and parents raised Siberian Huskies, to show. Other favorite dogs were Shetland Sheepdogs and Welsh Corgis. My mom had a beautiful Burnese Mountain Dog when I was little. She was such a sweet dog. We had a bouncy Old English Sheepdog. She was a lot of fun!
My very first dog was a little black Pekingese, named Kirin. How I loved that little dog! Another dog from my girlhood was a little black ragamuffin dog (mixed breed, a Heinz 57). I called her Twinkle. She was a cheerful little dog.
To be honest, I really miss having a dog. We'd love to have another Great Pyrenees. We really loved our Blaireau.
