DP Promp ~Animal farm


Let’s see, What animals have I had over the years?

Let’s start with someone I used to live with, She had three mice(No they weren’t blind) two gerbils, seven cats and a dog. Not including my own, In a two floor house. Yeah, I didn’t stay long.

Few years later my daughter was born and I got an aquarium, Three guppies. Two females and one male, Now for you fishkeepers you know what a mistake that was! Ended up with 12 babies! They are literally the rabbits of the aquarium world. Oh I forgot! I had a dog that I left with my ex gf, Quite the handsome mutt too! Half wolf, Black lab, boarder collie, Sheppard cross. Left him at the animal farm though since my ex gf felt she could make him feel more at home, So! Yups! That’s me, How about you? πŸ™‚

  1. I have a friend who’s moving and needs to find a home for her daughter’s two-foot shark… perhaps a solution to the guppy problem, lol! πŸ™‚

  2. What a gorgeous dog!!!!
    I brought home a mouse on the last day of school because someone needed to care for it, volunteering myself πŸ˜‰ my mom taught me responsibility …. After having a hyperventilated cow 😏

    As a child I had a male hamster and my sis had a female…. We learned 1 + 1 =29 LOL!!!

    As a child, we had a chiwowa (sp? I have to be quiet so I can’t ask my phone) and I believe a few terriers. But a tabby cat adopted us….which was fun with my moms daycare as “taffy” would bring mice to say thank you for allowing him to stay. I don’t know who moved faster when he dropped the first one at her feet as she sat outside with all the kids… He or she with a broom 😜

    My hubby and I had a black tortoise shell/Siamese who lasted 34 days without food or water when she got boxed up in a box spring during a move. The movers didn’t see her. She almost 20 years 😎 many years after!!!

    We had a grey cat who had kittens which was a beautiful time for my boys ….but we found new homes for them because trying to care for kids and cats …. Yeah.

    Then we had a white terrier I named coach who walked with when I exercised. This awesome friend died of parvoπŸ˜₯

    We had a German shepherd, but she kept nipping the boys.

    We had a cocker spaniel, same problem.

    We had a faded long-haired calico named Annie who hated my hubby. After many years of laughter, she ran away πŸ˜₯ I was heartbroken.

    Currently we just have a calico named Zoee, a black lab/collie mix Teslae and a golden retriever named Mercy.

    I’ve had fish too that I miss, but the tank cleaning was too hard on my back 😒

    We also had a precious black long-haired kitten with orange flecks named Audrey. She was perfect πŸ’œ she died at 2 1/2 of kidney stones.

  3. My goodness ! I realized I should never be late in replying otherwise I have to keep scrolling DOWNnnnnn to write my comment. Everything has been already written so nice to know about your animal love, that;s all for today. Yesterday I wrote my response very late and dozed off after that. Catch you in evening with new prompt πŸ™‚

  4. andy – you really did have some animal farm stories to tell – (laughed with ya too) and I did not know that about guppies. oh and no animal farm for us – just on our second pair of labs – keep it pretty simple and easy – although I man thinking I would like a puppy sometime soon –

  5. Interesting pet stories, Andy. When I was a child, I had a budgie who could recite “Georgie Porgie pudding and pie. Kissed the girls and made them cry.” Every morning, he used to call “You’ll be late for school!” πŸ™‚ I had a tortoise called Terry and my sister had one called Theresa. They didn’t make it through the English winter in their box of straw next to the fireplace. 😦 I’ve had dogs and cats too. My favourite cat Joey was hit by a car. I was devastated, and imagined I could feel him rubbing around my ankles for months after.
