    i'm a one or two dogs at a time kind of guy. i had a chow chow and i moved in with a lady who had a german shepherd and a large cat.

    after a few years going up and down in numbers, i woke up one day and this is what "we" had -

    5 (or 6) cats. she went to the pound to get a cat, within 2 weeks...

    birds - so one day i come home and she has bought 2 male canaries (males sing). within a couple months, we had a few canaries, male and female, finches, a few cockateals and a parrot. my gf would wake up very early in the morning and i'd sleep until 9 or later. the fucking birds would all wake up at sunrise and start singing and chirping and i'd beg her to shut them up. she would laugh at me.

    fish - 2 tanks, 30 gallons each. lots of fish. fresh water thank god.

    dogs - my chow, her GS and a new GS.



    it was kind of fun for awhile but we trimmed the cat population down to 2 and most of the canaries went to friends.

    she was my favorite GF and i miss her still but i will never own another bird! noisy bastards! :grad:

    so what was your highest number of pets (not counting domestic livestock etc.)?

    2 dogs 2 cats was my max number. Only ended up with that many because my grandmother was dying from cancer so I took her dog and cat while I took care of her. That dog always liked me second best anyway.

    Hell yeah. They have herding breed in them too, so they are ultra energized. A lot of beach running and swimming.

    Why, you want a pet? I have an 18 year old cat who constantly meows loudly 20 hours out of each day. When do you want to pick him up?

    sounds like a nightmare!

    i'm actually looking for an older dog at the moment. and quiet is close to the top of the list right after cute and lazy.

    i'm old and i don't like the idea of having a pet and maybe dying on them and them going from a nice life to a shelter or have friends feel like they have to take her. then again i could live another 30 years. :pray:

    I'm convinced people who own loud chirping birds for pets are on some kind of secret government list

    Most: three dogs. Two boxers and a chihuahua.

    Currently: two dogs. Boxer and mastiff/pit bull mix.


    Having two kids, three dogs is a bit much. Two and two is ok.

    I have one dog and am babysitting 2 others right now. Those two don't get along either so I'm constantly watching to make sure they don't fight. What a pain in the ass.

    It's beyond a nightmare. If it were up to me I'd make a deposit at the local vet. But I'm outvoted. So it's another day out of maybe a thousand more ahead of us listening to "MEOW! MEOW! MEEEEEEEOOOOOOWWWWW!" followed by "Shut up!" or "Please stop for one day at least".

    If you are on facebook, look up rescue places. I get regular posts from the local cocker spaniel rescue org. They are always looking for homes for older dogs. Whatever type you are looking for probably has a rescue org. It breaks my heart to see those older dogs needing homes. I'd get one but my wife would have a cow.

    i've tried a couple rescue places but they want to interrigate (sp) me and inspect my home and yard. i wouldn't let a cop in my home without a warrant (even though i'm completely legal these days) but these folks want to wander through?

    i'm way too private for that. growing pot for 20 years, i got in the habit of keeping strangers out. old habits are hard to break and i'm thinking some places would not like the idea of giving a dog to a pot fiend! like i'd waste pot on a dog!

    i had a roomie with a cocker spaniel and that is about the size i'm looking for. he was the neatest dog. he'd sit on his special chair in front of the salt water tank and just wag his tail like a tard on speed. he'd get so excited watching the critters and fish.

    2. Different combinations of cats and dogs.


    I have a friend that at one time had 4 cats, 2 dogs, two turtles, freshwater and saltwater fish tanks, and something else I can't remember. All in about 1200 sq ft.

    His place smelled like a pet store. I'm sure that's nothing compared to a bunch of other people though.
