    Reading the thread about Wolfhounds got me wondering what kind of pets, inf any, people have.

    Personally I have an 11 month old German Shorthaired Pointer, and her name is Porsche.

    I love animals, but can't have any myself. I get too attached to them and it kills me when they die. So I just enjoy other people's pets.

    Yeah, she's my first real pet, so we'll see how this one goes. I don't really want to think about it and there's 11 to 14 years to go!

    Currently have a cat, hes bigger than the neighbours dogs.

    Mixed personality, watched puppies when he was very young. As a result he's pretty hyperactive and fetches things, also has been trained to 'sit'.

    The family has 4 birds all cockatiels, and I'm usually the one who looks after them. We also have 6 chickens, so no more buying eggs from now on! :)

    I use to be like that but my 5-6 rabbits breed like theres no tommorrow

    I've got 2 Siberian Huskies who have killed one of our 4 cats so and one just died so that now leaves us with 2 .I'd estimate that the dogs have killed about 30 odd rabbits over the years,really sad and use to really upset me as a kid

    heres a pic of the killer

    Huskies are awesome! :occasion5:

    We have two beagles and two cats. One of the cats is a demon with fur. One of the cats thinks she's a dog. One of the beagles think's he's a human. The other beagle is pretty sure she runs the household. Basically....I'm just a glorified butler.
