Favorite pet you ever had

This is a discussion on Favorite pet you ever had within the Off-Topic forums, part of the General Discussion & News from Members category; I thought it might be interesting to see what kind of weird, rare, or strange looking pets people on here ...

Off-Topic Many people have requested an area of the forum in which to discuss topics not directly related to the rest of the forum (such as newt and salamander art).

I thought it might be interesting to see what kind of weird, rare, or strange looking pets people on here have kept before. Or just your favorite pet of any kind.

It does not have to be a caudate! What's your favorite?

Nothing can compare to the bearded collie I had growing up, and the cocker spaniel I have now.

Probably my iguana, which I presently have. I still can't find a name for him/her.

Probably the turtle dove that I had for a few years. I got it at age 5, when we went into a pet store to get my great grandmother a bird to keep her company, and one of the employees walked in saying a nest had hit his car and only one was alive. They gave us the bird for free and we bought some formula, as it didn't even have feathers yet. Just a hatchling. My great grandmother and I raised it, and we left the door of its bird cage open. When we came into the room, it would fly across to land on our shoulders. I loved that bird!

My sweet wild Ginger, aka The Pudden, and my new dog, friend Smoke, who I adopted last year :)

The Pudden loves to do tricks


Skijoring in the hills around our house is our favorite thing

Molch, you and the Pudden are lucky to have found each other! She looks like she fits in with the landscape just as well as ol' Smoke does.

Default Re: Favorite pet you ever had

Hard to call favorites. However, from my youth these two still tug my heartstrings thinking about:

I grew up with a Pomeranian named Einstein. He thought he was a person it seemed. Lived to be 18. We were his pack and he was feircely loyal. Didn't mind worth squat, but was the sweetest and friendliest dog I ever knew.

We "had" a crow named Kogee. He had been brought to us with a broken wing. He had a distinctive notch on his beak that looked like on old injury. We mended the wing and let him go, but he stayed near the house. When we sat on the porch, he would fly down and sit with us. He flew off one day, and just when we thought he was gone, he shows up with a murder of about 15 other crows. For the next 4 years we had that murder living in our backyard. I miss that little family.

My cat Bruno was my favorite pet, he was a chocolate burmese, very intelligent and extraordinarily friendly to humans but a raving psychopath to ever other living thing on the planet. I used to have to check my bed before I went to sleep because he used to leave disemboweled squirrels, rats, mice and birds there as a present. He never took the hint that they wernt appreciated. Still miss him now.
