I have 4 dogs, all adopted (a Plott Hound/Lab cross, a Husky, a Tricolored Walker Coonhound, & a Doberman); 6 cats, also all adopted; 7 horses (Thoroughbreds, Thoroughbred/Warmblood & Thoroughbred/Connemara crosses, & a Quarter Horse), a Citron-Crested Cockatoo, & a tank of tropical fish.

Over the years, though, I've had budgerigars, Australian finches, cockatiels & exotic parrakeets (which I bred), as well as mice, rats, hamsters, guinea pigs, ferrets, & even a pet skunk!

Here's Katie (7):


Son #2 has a 2-year old beta named "Cedric", and we still are keeping watch over "fuzzy", the yellow variant house finch who flew into our window last month, and now resides in a hamster cage till he's okay to fly.

I have a 10 year old Miniature Pinscher named Grommit. He's a great little companion. He lives for rides in the car and walks in the park. We sometimes travel with him and he's a good hotel guest too. We also have a 14 year old gray cat named Blue, who is the best cat in the world. He has a wisdom and a sensibility that you don't often see in a pet. Then there's my Bob cat, pictured in my avatar. He's 5 years old and has a bit of the devil in him. He makes me laugh. He's my constant companion - my little shadow - and the cat of my dreams. My neck will never be the same because he loves to have me carry and hold him as often as possible. It was not bad when he was a kitten, but he's a big boy now!

What does Koapaka mean? I have two Jack Russell Mutts, one of whom is definitely going to have to be put down this week. She was born in Hawaii 17 years ago. Her name is White Fang, but her daughter is Keiki. One day we were taking them to a vet at a military installation in Missisippi, and the vet tech was a Hawaiian man ... he barged out into the waiting room and said, "Who has Keiki!!!???" He loved it! Fang is so sad, she is just wandering through the house at slow speed, nonstop. She doesn't seem to be in pain today (yesterday I'd have sworn she'd have to go today). Husband is in denial to a degree -- poor girl was his very first dog ever.

I am so sorry, Claire... (((hugs both to you and White Fang))) here is a heartwarming piece that hopefully may make you feel a bit better... here on this page it is intended for a hamster but this was really written for any and all beloved pets. I hope it helps.
