    In my 28 years of marriage, my wife and I along with our 2 daughters have had the following menagerie of pets:

    5 dogs
    3 cats
    5 snakes
    3 birds - parakeet up to sun conure
    2 hamsters
    3 rats
    numerous mice
    numerous fish
    numerous hermit crabs
    1 Bearded Dragon
    2 Fire Belly Toads

    Anyone able to top that?

    Yep - impossible to have a phone conversation with a Sun Conure in the same room!

    WOW DR.!!
    I can not come close at all! we did have a fish once, but did not last long-it is now "resting" in the big septic tank in the yard! My daughter to this day places a flower over the tank now and then!
    After 21 years with the wife, the kids and I talked her in to a dog, a Weimaraner and it's been 3.5 years and she has JUST started to "warm" up to the idea of having a dog in the house. I have been paying for it ever since, my honey do list never ends....
    P.S. Dr.Doo, she (Weimaraner) came from just north of you in Calhoun Georgia.

    Not even close. We have one cat. Down from two....which is a good thing.

    When I was a kid I had a pet Racoon. Followed me around like a dog, but meaner.:yes

    Can't even come close to ya.
    I don't even go to the zoo to see animals.
    All ya got to do is find a good sized bike night. Some of those animals will have ya nightmarin' for a long time.:D But, if you do it right and just watch the cute kittens, why, you might have sweet dreams.

    Rich, Steve, Lew - you know how to finish this one up.:)

    We've always had a dog. Raising three girls was hard enough. Then I always ended up with a female dog. Then the wife is given a 5 month old cocker so we end up with two. Five females made me make a "The week of the Month Room" downstairs so I had a place to go. Girls are now grown and out, I buy a Harley and she gets to cocker pups. There 18 weeks old now. But this time there brothers. Yea, Harley and Ripley.
