    Something I regret is not having the dogs before...the human kids. It's wonderful to have two creatures that hang on your every word. They'll never play video games, seldom talk back, you always know exactly where they are and they're grateful for the slightest praise...perhaps I should have had them instead of the human kids...nah the eldest kid I'm darn proud of

    Cat person here. We had 4 but they slowly died off and now just one. Maybe it's time to find another....

    None currently. Used to have a dog. I'd get a cat except I'm allergic. Kittens are so darn cute though.

    just like the Queen :D

    Oh what a pity. Did you know that children that grow up with pets are less likely to suffer from allergies.

    This is Bert the Rasta Rat!
    He's no longer around as he got very sick but he was the best per I ever had :)
    He was very cosy and loved to be around people.

    Every morning my Dad would let him out of his cage to stretch his legs around the living room, he's always run along the sofas onto his knee for a little smooth on the back of the neck and some toast.

    I then had 2 rats after him (bubble and squeak) but they weren't the same, weren't as friendly unfortunately.

    :D

    Resize and upload your photos to an online photo sharing site. Get the URL of the photo and paste that into the your post.

    Or you can resize the photos (640 px wide is a good forum size, big photos are slow to load and inconsiderate on forums) and click on upload file below on the right on the open dialogue box for a reply.

    We've had an assortment of pets over the years: cats, hamsters, budgies, rabbits, fish and guinea pigs.

    At the moment though we just have one cat, Alfie.

    No pets but I love dogs .I walk my next door neighbour dog yellow lab11 years old we have had 11 years of pure joy I think he thinks he belongs to me she says after she takes him in the morning walk he goes upstairs on the bed so he can look out of the window and waits till I come home The reason I have not got a dog is because I work silly hours so I would not be with him most of the day.
