We just lost 3 hermies so right now we don't have any other pets. But we have BIG plans for more next year when we move out of our tiny apartment and into a bigger home. We are getting a chin for my daughter and hamsters for my son. And for mom: a dog!

I've only got two pets besides my piggies, my dog, and an African dwarf frog. My dog is a yellow lab named Jessie. He'll be 6 in October, and he's almost completely blind. He is the laziest lab I have ever met! He'd much rather lay on his bed and and have his head scratched then go on a long walk in the park. He almost never barks, only when he sees someone at the door.
And my frog is the most boring and low maintenance pet ever. His (?) name is Kermit, and he had a friend, Brooke, but she (?) died about a week after I got her. He's so low maintenance, all you have to do is feed him twice a week. His tank probably needs cleaning, but it's such a tiny little tank you barely have to do anything. Although he is very entertaining when he gets his food and he bobs to the surface.

I don't have any good pictures on my computer right now, so I'll try to upload some.

meet terry who is a Lhasa Apso that we sort of rescued when my Cousin wanted to give him to a shelter after My cousin got pregnant. He is now 11 years old, turning 12 next month, and we've had him since he was 8 months :)

This is Jay, who is now 4 years old I believe, which was my sister's but she moved out and left him behind...not that he's TOO upset about that.

This is one of my turtles. I have 2 and have had them since they were the size of my pinky! They should be turning 15 this summer!

Also, While I'm in the Dominican Republic I usually tend to take in some animals, and this is a picture of the most recent stray which my grandfather is now caring for until it gets better. She was abandoned in the street and some kids were running around throwing bricks at stray dogs so we grabbed this baby before anything happened. When she gets bigger and stronger we'll let her go :)

Well, I haven't been around for a while, but I now have 3 boars named Bugsy, Sweetie Pig, and a 5 week old named Elvis. We also have 2 dogs, Ginger and Winston, and a cat named Car (3 little boys named her hehehe).

We are also in the process of getting a Syrian hamster. We haven't gotten it yet because I'm trying to do my research first. I made a lot of mistakes with my pigs when I first started, and I don't want that same thing to happen with the hamster! :)

Other than my Rhode and Robin, guinea pig sisters with short tortoiseshell fur (black, red, and white), I also have Leo, a golden-brown dwarf hamster.

In the past, I had two red-slider turtles (Active Mighty Torty I and Torty II; I was in Gr 3-4, I believe), some fish, and two hamsters (Blaster I had white-golden fur, and Blaster II had grey-white fur; they were named after the main character of a story I wrote back then). The reason for "I" and "II" for my turtles and hamsters was because "I" passed away and mom got me another one.

Personally, I believe that I have a better naming sense now.

Unlike the pets I had in the past, I had bought Leo, Rhode and Robin from people who no longer wanted them, instead of buying them from a pet store. Also, I had bought Leo, Rhode, and Robin using my own money, and I would be their caretaker, not my mom.

Correction, my cavies seemed to have rosette fur. Their fur in grown in a flower-like pattern. I had thought that was just messy fur, but it wasn't.

The family goldfish passed away last week, just days before confirming that my pig is pregnant. In the past we have had four dogs, Ragtime, Dopey, Corey, and Chester; three cats, Honey, Race, and Tiger; several fish, including Flotsam, Jetsam, Flounder, Zombie, Spot, and Prince; and I personally had three gerbils, Day, Night, and Jason. Now my mom happily tells everyone that she has no more pets. "The pig is hers, not mine! I'm done!" :D

Along with my guinea pig Stan (2 years old), I have a cat named Roma (6 years old). They are both from my local humane society. As you can see, Roma has one bad ear, I think she had a pretty rough life until she came to the shelter and I took her home. :) Stan on bed Rom

I'm not a big reptile person but your geckos have amazing eyes!! I love how cool they look!!


We have 2 frogs in addition to our piggies. They're really small, live in a tank and only require to be fed 2x a week. They were an impulse buy for my daughter since my mom kept pressuring me to buy them ("you had a fish, why can't she have frogs?") My daughter calls them frog 1 and frog 2. I named them Polly Wog and Anne Fibian :p

All the animals here are gorgeous! I particularly like looking at the pets that we're not allowed here in Australia - like hamsters and chinchillas. I'd love to have a hamster, but sadly it's not to be.

As well as our 7 guinea pigs, we also have two rabbits.
This is Dobby:
579472_10150836639203553_821800957_n.jpg


Dobby came to us late last year as a stray. We found him hopping around our yard, eating dandelions and generally loving life. My partner walked right up to him and just picked him up, with barely a fight. Poor Dobby probably would have been eaten by a dog if we didn't take him in.

About a month ago we adopted a wife bun for Dobby from a rescue. This is Winky:
7406549608_6f3eb1494e_m.jpg


I wouldn't say that Dobby and Winky are quite "bonded" yet, but they don't fight, so hopefully they'll learn to love each other. Winky has problems using the litter tray, so we generally don't allow her to hop around the whole house, just one room. I'm pretty sure it's territorial marking, so hopefully that will die down once she's more used to the environment and her spay has taken its full effect

Here's another photo of Dobby, for good measure:
