How many pets have you had throughout your life?Having recently lost our beautiful little Zoe, it got me thinking of all the love I have received from the animal world throughout my life so far. So I sat myself down and made a list of all the pets I have had and loved. There has been very few times in my life that I haven't had some sort of pet. In fact the only time I can think of was our time living in Toronto, Canada back in the 1980's. So today I would love to share with you a list of my four legged (and in some instances two legged) family throughout my 61 years.
1. David - Golden Cocker Spaniel.
David was my first animal. I presume I loved him but I don't really remember him.

2. Fritz - Dachshund (Sausage Dog).
Fritz was a lovely dog and he was definitely my Dads dog.
I remember the day he died was the first and one of the only times I saw my Dad cry.
Not sure where Moe got his name?
4. Freddie - Poodle.
My cousin Susan owned Freddie's father (Cuddles) and while visiting I just fell in love with this fluffy little puppy. Dad said we couldn't have another dog as we already had Fritz.
So what did Mum and I do - we smuggled Freddie home under a blanket in the back seat with me.
5. Jack - Galah.
Dad bought Jack home after finding him on the side of the road with a broken wing.
6. Sam - Magpie.
This was another new family member that Dad found with a broken wing. Sam was definitely my bird. He would sit on my window ledge and sing to the records I was playing. He also barked exactly like our dogs.

7. Blackie and Brownie - Bantom Hens
8. Chooks (Hens) - not really pets as we ate them.
9. Lots of different types of birds in averies
10. Budgies and Canaries
12. Butch - Mix
13. Tara - Dalmation
As she had her papers I fully intended to breed her with another Dalmation. But she had other ideas and she got out of out our yard and mated with a black Labrador.
Oh well - the eight pups she had were pretty adorable.
15. Guinea Pig
17. Rambo - Mix
We owned Rambo while we lived in New York.
He had the habit of jumping in the bath while Shane (my son) was having his bath.
18. Tammy - Mix
I must say out of all the animals I have had Tammy would be close to being my favorite.
She had such a gentle, sweet nature.
19. Caspa - Black Cat
Caspa was my son Shane cat.
He got her for Christmas and for many years they were constant companions..
20. Zoe - Miniture Poodle, Australian Silkie Terrier Cross
Beautiful Zoe was a beautiful dog - if maybe a little loud.
