Animals?
 
Do you have any animals?

We do not, Im not an animal person and im pretty terrified of dogs, however my brother is in the army and his dog lives at my parents and hes a pitbull. This dog use to scare me to death, but one day my dh and I were play fighting and he almost attacked my DH, he had to leave the room and then the dog wouldnt leave my side. Now he follows the kids around, and if he thinks someone is hurting them he goes crazy, DH cant hold the kids or hardly touch them without the dog wigging out. Not to mention the dog is a beast, he weighs 85lbs and he thinks hes a lap dog. He jumped in my bed twice and the other day he tried to sit on my lap lol.

Pits used to be called nanny dogs because of their protective nature. We have a lab and she is my baby. I absolutely love her she is my child :) she is very excited to be a big sister LOL :P

Not anymore. We had a German Shepherd for 7.5 years, then gave her to my ILs because she was getting into too much trouble (ripping screens, barking anytime the windows were open) We knew it was from lack of attention but also couldn't see not going places with the kids because of the dog. My ILs already had 2 shephers, so she had playmates. She died about a year after being with them though.

My boys are desperate for chicks, although they said we'd have to get rid of them when they turn into "real" chickens. :lol: And our daughter wants a kitty and a bunny. Almost every morning she takes a carrot out to the front walkway and leaves it for the bunnies. We told them maybe by next spring we'll be in a position to get something, right now we just don't have the time to get the right stuff set up for them to have them.

We have a bunny. We would love to have a dog, but the place we live does not allow them. Actually, they don't allow bunnies either, but our bunny is much easier to conceal. Oops, hehe.

We have 2 cats and a dog, but honestly we will probably be finding the dog a new home. We had our cats first, and they have not gotten over having a dog in the house. It's been 6 months and they still hide upstairs, still run when they hear her, still freak out if she gets too close. It's not fair to them.

We have 2 kitties. We used to have turtles. And I've been promising to get another fish for my daughter for a while (last one died a while back).

We have 3 dogs. Daisy is our pure bred mini daschund. Maxter is our chiwinnie (half Chihuahua, half mini daschund) and Harvey is our mut (half daschund, half beagle).

We also breed rabbits for extra money and meat so we have 12 atm.

We are also getting laying hens for fresh eggs. We are slowly turning into a farm. We have our own garden too.

7 horses?????? I have two and am the only one that rides. Well sometime the kids but not very often. What kind of horses do you have.

Lets see. I have 4 kids and #5 on the way lmao. Ok really lmao. I have 11 chickens. 2 horses. 2 dogs (a lab and a doxie) 2corn snakes. and a bearded dragon. The snakes are my husbands and the lizard is my 7 year olds. The chickens we just got this year so there still little and not laying yet. My horses are my babies. I tell my husband I could get rid of everything except the horses and the chickens and be happy lmao.

I have a cat Arnold and a rescue mutt Kingston. Arnold has been my faithful and constant companion for ten years now. I love him more than most people to be honest. There is nothing like cuddling with him :)

We have one cat and one dog. If I had my way we would have a thousand cats, but DH won't allow it :P as soon as we get into a house we would like to get one more cat and one more dog. Hubby really wants a puppy.
