Thursday 13 pets I've had

  1. Maisie – a mutt terrier – who ate through the washing machine cord while it was running.
  2. Daisy – another mutt terrier, but one of the dogs ever!
  3. Smokey – the cat who would let me dress her up in doll clothes and wheel her around in my toy stroller.
  4. Terry – the collie we received as a rescue.
  5. Buffy – the Pekingese we got from my grandparents when they moved.
  6. Angel – a tea cup poodle my parents got me for my 18th birthday.
  7. Smokey – a balinese that I bought for my ex, but ended up being the one to take care of her.
  8. Idgy – a chow lab mix that was the love of my life.
  9. Karleigh – a Sheltie I rescued from the pound.
  10. Sady – a gray sable kitten that I found behind my garage with her siblings abandoned.
  11. Dickens – a tiger cat we inherited from my mom.
  12. Gunner – our fun loving black lab
  13. Whiskey – our beautiful golden retriever

Mere just reminded me I should have listed the horses too! Sorry Buck and Tack. I’ll skip the hamsters, poly wogs, gold fish and room mate shared pets.


Holy cow what a list! I’ve only ever had 5, 4 pups and a hamster… My hamster was supposed to be a he and turned out to be a she, we found out when the he had babies…

So many. How lucky. We’ve had 2 birds, a Siamese and a Golden Retriever. I never had a pet as a child despite my begging. But my husband probably has everyone beat with dozens of cats, dogs, birds, fish, even pet goats and iguanas — and he lived in the city!


Great post. We justlost our first dog a few weeks ago so I know how precious animals are!
