    We have a black cocker spaniel named Rambo. Got him in 1999 thru the cocker rescue group, so he had the name when we got him. He is totally spoiled rotten and between 8-10 years old, since he was given to the rescue group by the brother of his original owner after she died we really don't know his age for sure.

    Do you have any photographs of Rambo Toni - we'd love to see them. :D

    Nice to have you back with us again Seattle - wondered where you'd disappeared to. :)

    I have a 3 yr old yellow lab named Tequila. He is rather chunky even though I don't feed him scraps. I will have to take a picture with my new camera to show him off. He just got groomed.

    Up until three years ago we had a yellow labrador too Alyssa. He was called Blue and was one of the best companions I've ever had. They're perfect pets for a family and just love to join in with everything don't they?!!! Looking forward to a piccie of your Tequila - I have a feeling he's gonna look a lot like Blue as he was a chunky dog too.

    Hi, Eileen,

    Tequila really is a great dog, I don't know what I would do without him. He is great with the kids and I feel very safe with him watching over us.

    Here is a picture of him but you can't really see how chubby he is in it. I need a better shot of his belly lol. Since we are in FL and its hot here (not to mention all the shedding) I get his body shaved. He LOVES it as much as I do lol.

    If you have hotlink protection of any kind, you may need to allow gardenstew through it... just one idea...

    Only one cat here, Pi - she came with the house when we moved in - and three parakeets. The 'keets are such good company, always cheery and burbling.

    Hi everyone I have a toy poodle that I have had for about 2 months now his name is Chicalen which is Spanish for something little and funny. He is black and very smart. I have never had a small dog before only big ones like german shepards, and rottweilers so he is definatly diffenrent than any other dog I ever had he is spoiled rotten and comes to work with me everyday. I always worry that hes not eating enough but I think its just because I am use to the way big dogs eat.LOL I have two 20 gallon tanks one at home that has 2 gold fish and one at work that has 2 neons, 2 cory cats, 2 goranimis, 5 playtes, a betta an alge eatter and an apple snail. I use to have 2 Lamancha wether goats and a wether boer mix goat and 12 hens and 2 roosters but when I left the bad marriage I was in in December they could not come with me. I found them all good homes but I miss my fresh eggs.

    Hi Amanda.

    I'm used to big dogs too - Great Danes and Labradors. However, if I ever get another dog it will be much smaller - maybe a wire-haired fox terrier?? Have you any photographs of Chicalen by any chance. We're a nosey bunch here and love to see each others pets. :-D

    My daughter has a tropical fish tank with neon tetras, cloud minnows, silver sharks, mollies, guppies, corries and a large pleck. At the moment she's inundated with baby mollies and guppies!!! :rolleyes:

    I would love to see some photos of Chicalen Amanda. I'm sure he lives up to his name. Does he like to bark at strange people like he is lord of the manor? I¨ve noticed this with small dogs more than bigger dogs. It's like they have something to prove because of their size :D

    We had goats and ducks and chickens and geese. They are all the fun farm animals, I think. We couldn't keep them when we moved either. Now, we just have Chance. Chance and Susie the goat both have blogs. Dooley

    Hi guys I have lots of pictures :D but none digital I may be able to get one this weekend if I am able to get the camera I have had my eye on. He only barks if hes a sleep and gets startled, or if someone knocks on the door at home as soon as he sees them hes ok. I had alot of people tell me poodles were very yappie but hes not. Maybe because he has had so much socialization because he comes to my office with me everyday.

    Pets?? Who's talking pets?? I have babies, NOT pets! :p

    Amanda and everyone else, I would love to see photos of all of your kids - please post.

    I personally have a miniature doberman and her son who is a minpin/toy poodle mix - yes, he's ugly as you can imagine but he's my baby and his personality is just like his daddy's - sweet, loving, kind, and outrageous :D .

    Also have 2 miniature horses (grand champions, both) that are due to have their kids in August - Ill be a grandma :-D As soon as I figure out how to post photos in this forum I'll post.

    Hugs to everyone and all of thier babies...[/img]

    2 cats here, you have all seen the pics, two weeks ago, it was nearly one cat. Elvis was hit by a car and has been very poorly.He is now on the up (thank god) and is managing to walk again. Its been a rough two weeks here.
    We also have two goldfish, i did have a golden lab called sandy, but she kept eating through the walls in the house, so sadly i had to rehouse her.
    I would like a parrot, but my partner says " over my dead body" well, we shall see :D :D :D
