I love my Pembroke and the horses but in some ways Buggsy gives me a lot they don't. ( They give me a lot that Buggsy can't though. .

Buggsy is a little (3lb. 2 oz) Mini Rex (bunny) that just loves to 'snuggle' for hours on end. He also likes to go on walks - yes he is a bunny but goes on his harness/leash. Does he 'walk' as good as a dog - no but much better than a cat or ferret.

Not for me at all as I am afraid of birds because they will peck me (fear goes back to childhood), but for some their Feathered Friends give so much to them.

Great topic! This is my woolly friend, BamBam. I bought him while I was on chemo last spring. He is a cross between a Coburg Fox ewe and an Ouessant ram, so he has the color from his mom and the horns from his dad. He is incredibly gentle and affectionate, even to the chickens! Hug

Oh He's gorgeous Split-bean.

We have 2 doggies:

Emma is a Cattle Dog cross. We have had her for 10 years approx. She's my protector.

Darcy is a Lab cross. Had him almost 7 years. He's 40kilos of loveable stupidity.

We also have 4 birds. Two are Galahs and are outside in an aviary, Georgie and Colin.

The other 2 are Rosellas; Penny and Sheldon. They are inside birds.

We get wildlife rescue birds to nurse back to health and most are returned to the wild once better. The ones we have kept have issues and are not able to be released.

Will include a couple of pics for those who are not familiar with Galahs and Rosellas. (Not my birds in the pics but mine are the same)

This is Simon. We rescued him from a No-Kill shelter when he was 6 years old. He is now 12. He has feline diabetes and is doing well with a lot of care from his Mommy. We also had Jack who was a beautiful Buff colored kitty with orange tabby markings but he passed away from Cancer and we miss him lots, especially Simon.

Sqrlady - You win the furry friend diversity award! You family sounds amazing. Do you milk your goats? (Dumb question probably.) A Clyesdale? Amazing. Our towny dogs were tortured by a sassy squirrel who delighted in antagonizing them AND getting me in trouble with the neighbor so I relocated him and a couple others to our farm so they can torture the goats! Our goats are Lamancha wethers.

I hope you are stable and going strong!

HAHA St Patricks day is a great reason to get together all dressed in green and party big time! had some good ones when I was at Uni.

Ava is just on 3 months old... she hasnt shown much hearding instinct at this time, just a whole lot of energy, love and more energy.

She spent the last month on 5 acres at my parents house about 8 hour drive from us with my our family dogs Duetz and Piper in the bottom middle photo.

Once we have taken her through basic dog training I would like to get into Agility with her :)

From top to bottom, Chevy a 12 year old gelding, part Morgan, Quarter Horse and Draft I've been riding this summer. Leo is my three-legged cat brought home as a 3 week old kitten with an amputated back leg due to a birth defect and Skunky, the guinea pig. I don't have photos of my other cat, Ellis, the other guinea pig or our 6 year old Goldendoodle but we have a houseful and I don't live in the country. If I did, there'd be goats, a cow, many barn cats and a herd of horses and a German Shepherd or two... I'm a country girl at heart.
