Hey everybody!

Just wondering,( although many people seem to be on this site) if we have any major animal lovers on this site.
A little about me:

I would ALWAYS rescue an animal, never buy. I have this thing with rescuing the "ugly" animals, or animals missing legs, tails and eyes. I think it makes them unique. I HATE it when people say "its just a dog" or "its just a fish". Keeping animals for me is a passion, and i do it out of love, not just to have an animal because its cool. I like dinosaurs a lot believe it or not, and i am into mythology:-D. I can't go to my LPS during adoption day,and i especially can't stand to watch those ASPCA commercials. It literally tears my heart out to watch 3 seconds of it. My favorite animals are lions and horses, but mostly horses, especially draft horses like Clydesdales:-D

Anyways, my avi and signature says it all. :) SO, what pets do you have? Anything unique about them? Stories?

Cant wait to see pics of all your little/big friends!!!

My signature says it all too. If I were to picture them all I'd run out of room lol. So I'll do the finless ones. Spike is my cockatiel and she's 11 years old. She's quite the character. Ekans is our little corn snake, we've had him for about a year and I think he's about a year and a half old. And then our most recent cutie is Rummy Sampson Royal, our mini rex rabbit. He'll be 7 weeks old on saturday.

That and he gets into trouble! Always chewing on things and trying to break out of his play pen lol. Although he is being a really good boy about other things. He's starting to learn to go potty in his litter box, and to eat both kinds of pellets not just the one type. He was also very good when I clipped his nails yesterday. So I guess he's not completely full of trouble but he's still wiley

there are the times where he's being just adorable though. Like after running around we'll find someplace suitable and flop ourselves down. From there we roll onto our back and wiggle with our feets in the air for a second and then back onto our side. After that we generally fall asleep.

I absolutely love animals too :) If I could, I would probably own a zoo of pets!

I always prefer to rescue animals too. My first pet (besides the dog my family had when I was born) was a little smooth-haired guinea pig named Bandana. My mom and I went to a local guinea pig rescue (a lady had turned her basement into a guinea pig rescue!) to get the little guy. After Bandana, I rescued another guinea pig (this time from one of Petco's adoption events). I miss my guinea pigs; they truly make awesome pets!!

The dogs that I currently have are Siberian Huskies. We rescued them from a husky rescue! One of them was previously abused :( But we got him healthy and he loves us and we love him!

Let's see if I can fit all my pets here.

First, Lucky is my male rescue German Shepard/Huskey dog mix and extremely hyper. He's toned down since I got him five years ago, but he's still fairly energetic. Lucky looks like a German Shepard but with floppy ears and a Huskey tail. He's a strange looking dog for sure.

Next is my female lionhead rabbit named Fluffy. She's brown like a wild rabbit.

Then there's Ralph, my pudgy male blue budgie which I bred myself.

Buttercup/Butterbub is an interesting green budgie... when we got him/her Butter was too young to gender, so we hoped for a female to breed with Ralph and named hopefully her Buttercup for her yellow-green coloring. A month later, her beak was half brown for female, half blue for male. This was unusual, since it appeared Buttercup was both a boy and a female. The next day, her beak was all blue. We got a male, and renamed her Butterbub. The next day, Butterbub's beak was brown. This went on for a few weeks until her beak stayed brown, and Buttercup started building a nest for eggs shortly after.

Next up are my two goldfish RedHead and Pie. Pie is a Shubunkin, and I'm not sure what breed RedHead is... all I know is that he is very fat, while Pie is small. I consider them both males, although I do not know their true gender, as goldfish are difficult to gender.

Next are my tropical guppies, I have two tanks for them: a female tank and a male tank. Originally I had one tank and one boy, one girl fish for breeding, but eventually I had to separate the genders since I didn't want any more babies!

Last, but not least is Blu, my turquoise VT betta. He is particularly aggressive, and has been even at the store.

That's all of my pets, sorry for the lack of pictures, I'll get to it eventually.

I have 2 parakeets, 2 goldfish, 2 cats, 1 dog, 1 betta, 1 shrimp, 1 horse, and 2 starlings.
I got my dog from an animal shelter around 10 years ago. Sweetest little dog ever! He's grown up so much. His name is Butch.

Pumpkin the orange Domestic Shorthair showed up at our house, barely able to meow, malnourished and very much a kitten. Now she makes up for her sore throat by never shutting up!

Simon came almost exactly a year ago. He was just sitting under my parent's window, meowing his head off! I went out to feed him....longest cat I have EVER seen, at 3 feet from nose to tail. He was so thin you could literally loop your fingers around his waist. His title is Simon the Longcat.

Angel the budgie came along on Christmas Day, 2008. It was just a few months after my cockatiel Cookie had passed away. Angel was 3 months old when I got him, and I worked very hard at taming him. He's now super-tame and absolutely looooves people!

Skye was adopted in March of 2009. My uncle is a teacher, and a fellow teacher bought a parakeet for her 5 year old son, expecting him to know how to take care of it, and to take care of it. She was severely neglected (in a canary cage, under-exercised, overweight, extremely afraid of people, biting like no tomorrow). I worked with her and now she isn't afraid and will willingly sit on my shoulders and preen me.

Last year in June I decided that I wanted a goldfish. I saved up my money, bought a filter, decorations, and plants. I went to the pet store and out of an extremely overstocked tank, I picked out an itty bitty pink/white Pearlscale goldfish (female), the fattest and cutest one. The employee really crushed her fins when he caught her, but when I came home I put her in a 1 gallon tank next to my bed and I fell in love! She became very used to humans, did a little dance when I came into my room, and was just plain adorable. She stayed that way for a week. Then I put her into a 10 gallon tank on a different dresser. 3 months later I got Houston, a Black Moor goldfish. He was one of the fish that was originally with Pearl....poor Houston was extremely underfed, picked on, and his fins were shredded. I took pity on him and took him home. Both fish are very very very fat now (VERY healthy!) and share their 20 gallon tank on a DIFFERENT dresser :lol: Now, a 20 gallon tank is much too small for 2 fancy goldfish, but I compensate for that with a 68 gallon filter!!
What else...
Oh yes. Omelette was bought by me in January (I have no clue when). I went to the store where I bought my goldfish, and there were7 bettas in cups lined up against a sink. Poor things!! They were all Veiltails, blue and red, and very neglected. The only ones that looked like they would survive were Omelette and another red fish. So I took home Omelette. Now the picky boy lives in a 3 gallon tank next to my bed with his Ghost shrimp friend, Ash. I got Ash, Brock, and Misty to stop Om from tailbiting. I gave Brock to my friend, and Om ended up eating Misty. Now Ash is like a ninja-shrimp, trying to avoid being eaten.

I got my horse 3 months ago. Her name is Nasdaq and she's 1/4 Arabian, 3/4 Paint. She's built as though she's half and half though. I love her to bits! She's the sweetest 4-year-old horse I know xD

My 2 starlings I got a month ago.... They were at the stable, in a nest on the eve of a roof. Their mother kicked them out due to mites, and I took them home because there are at least 25 cats at the barn, and there is no way they'd survive alone.
So they're my wonderful, talkative, zooming around babies!
I love them so much, but they're going to a new home soon.


I think that's all my pets. I'll probably be getting more though xD

Your dog sounds adorable! Your budgie sounds funny, maybe it was both genders, but confused itself? Haha, hope for pics soon!:-D
