In June 2006 my husband and I adopted a retired greyhound (Dodge). We considered many other breeds, but something attracted us to greyhounds. Such a calm dog, with so many miles on his legs. When he came home with us in 2006, he was so scared about everything!! Ceiling fans scared him, actually his own refection scared him as he would bark at his refection in the slider door. He did accomplish a couple of things that most greyhounds struggle with he learned to climb the stairs to our second floor and back down and he actually would "sit" and give "his paw"! Dodge has come a very long way since that June day, and continues to learn new things about retired life! If you are thinking about bringing a dog into your family, I would consider a greyhound. They are very easy going pets who are big gentle giants who do well with kids and truly appreciate everything you do for them!! Happy Birthday to Dodge!! :)

Happy Birthday to Dodge.

I have a long haired barking rat(really a dog I think) Check my profile pics.

I just found a box turtle walking down the road and now he is in my back yard.

Bottle fed a couple baby squirrels that I released in my back yard when they were grown. They have been outside for almost a year now. They still come down daily to be hand fed nuts and stuff. They can be seen in my pics here http://www.facebook.com/rick.ehrich

The day after Christmas I heard what sounded like my pet squirrel being killed so I ran outside to find a lovebird looking down at me from a tree branch. I got a cracker and he flew right down to me. I put an add on Craigslist "Found small tame bird" I got almost 30 emails from different people that had lost anything from parrots to macaws. All really sad stories but no lovebirds. Make a long story short he is still with me.

Happy Bday dodge,
I have 2 clown fish (one black, one like nemo) and a damsel fish (blue and yellow). about 2 years old. I also have a bunch of coral I would consider pets as well, since I like them just as much as my fish and spend more money on them then the fish and they are living plants with mouths, can move, have skeletons and sometimes arms or feet. A marine fish tank is so fun and butiful, but its expensive at first to start up. Some of my coral I've owned for 6 years. Its interesting to see how other organisms reproduce, especially coral. Some coral you can just cut in half or break, and both pieces will grow. Its pretty fun.

some of the coral I have:
frogspawn, fungai plate, birdsnest, anthelia, anenome, kenya tree, leather, bunches of mushrooms, green and orange plates

Other critters:
turbo snail, astrea snail, micro star fish, copepods, hermit crabs, pin cushion sea urchin, emerald crabs

Thants just some of the stuff in there
a whole bunch of contained life in my front room :)

Good question @branie

HAppy Birthday Dodge! We have 3 cats at our house. 1 Female Turkish Van that is a total princess and 2 male flame point himilayan brothers. We have a guy in our neighborhood that walks his geese through the neighborhood. The brothers will join in the walk when he gets to our house. The cats will go as far as another house (almost around the block) that has cats and then they turn around and come home.
