    Default I'd love to see your other pets...

    Our house is a zoo. My husband wanted to be a vet when he was young because he loves "collecting" pets. Turns out he didn't want to treat sick pets, he just wants to have them. LOL. My 2 kids are growing up to be the same as my husband, so I get voted down a lot on the pet selections.

    I'd love to see what kind of pets you guys have other than your bulldogs.

    Here are our other pets:
    My dog, Gizmo:


    Turtles:


    Fish (sorry, this was taken while we were in the process of cleaning out the tank):


    African rat:


    Ball python Curlie:


    Ball python Salazar:


    Ball Python Sunshine:


    Ball Python Jack:


    Western hognose Zeke:

    @anatess...I can see your critters are taken care of very well. Your family provides them a nice environment. I know all that stuff adds up $$ so I know you care about their welfare. I've never had any snakes or turtles but I'm sure they are fascinating to watch. I even get a kick out of the little lizards that hang out in my back yard. Lucky for them my dogs don't want to chase them.

    Oooooo! @LariP... I use to have gold fish when I was a teen. I remember buying something called a "pearl" and a "bubble eye" and other fancies, tropicals too! I use to raise parakeets, finches and canaries. I don't know how my mother tolerated my hobbies so I guess she must've liked them too!

    Well other than my bullies I have Louie my French Bulldog/Boston Terrier Mix. Caught him sitting up against his pillow. Funny way to sit. I think he is sulking.



    My 3 cats Chloe, Betty and Miss Daisy.

    You guys made my day!

    I grew up praying infront of the Virgin Mary with her foot stomping on a snake, so yeah, I wasn't a snake person at all! I mean - if my family sees a snake, first thing we do is find a shovel and chop its head off.

    But then I married this crazy pet lover guy... he begged me for a snake our first few years of marriage. Of course, I said No! I'm as terrified of it as most people are! He came to the marriage with 2 dobermans and his first Christmas gift to me was the fish tank.

    We had the 2 kids and my husband would catch critters in the backyard with the kids and that included snakes. They would put toads, lizards, anoles, snakes, turtles, etc. in a jar and "observe" them. I would see these jars inside the house! So, I told them, as long as whatever critters they got gets let go before dinner, I'm okay with that. And, of course, kids aren't allowed to pick up any creature, living or dead, without my husband. Oh, and snakes aren't allowed in the house. But then, my husband is like Bullie - stubborn - he would sneak the snakes in to show the kids. But then, this new exotic pet store opened by my house and the kids go there every weekend like it's the zoo. They got little kids as young as 3 years old holding snakes there! Anyway, this one particular snake was so chill. She would curl up into a ball and just lay there on your hand. So, I bought the thing and the kids named her Curlie - on one condition - they're not allowed to bring wild snakes into the house ever again. And they have to take care of the snake themselves because I am not going near the snake - so if they forget to feed her, she's going to die because I'm not feeding the thing.

    Anyway, after a while, I realized my kids (who were 5 and 7 year olds at the time) were consistently taking responsibility of the snake - cleans up the vivarium, changes the water daily, checks on the temps, etc. I mean - they're easy pets to care for - poops only about once a week, eats only once a week, doesn't make any noise, doesn't chew furniture... so, I started to like this snake. And I really like decorating the vivarium. If we get rid of the snakes, I'm still going to keep the vivarium - they look really nice and it's like having a piece of Africa in my house.

    And then, of course, my husband says the kids are always fighting on who gets to pet the snake, so he got another snake - one for him and one for each kid and they say Curlie is mine. Uh, yeah right. So, my kids would take the snakes, put them under their own cardboard "castle", take out all their plastic soldiers/tanks and play capture the flag on my coffee table with the snakes as the "king".

    And then, of course, now all the neighborhood kids are constantly in my house wanting to play with the snakes because their parents won't let them have one. LOL. So yeah, my house is constantly a circus.
