Yes, but May 6, 2012

I posted "Other" because I didn't choose them, they were given to me.

A friend had to move to Russia so he left me his little dog, who I'd known since she was born. I take her for a run every day so she helps keep me fit.

Then a couple of years ago another friend surprised me with a birthday gift of 3 hens, which now provide me with a delicious free-range egg a day each; after a while, I always end up with too many for my own personal use, so I have to give them away to appreciative friends and neighbours.

Last but not least, about a year ago a friend/colleague (you know who you are!) asked me to "look after" his cat while he went off on a romantic idyll to the other side of the world - and she is still here too!

PS: I forgot about the fish, I have a few goldfish and other types in an outdoor pond.

Yes May 6, 2012

And whithout her I would have to look for some way not to go crazy from working from home.

I posted it last year here: http://www.proz.com/forum/off_topic/194822-my_new_companion_a_puppy.html#1710622

Of course, now she's twice the size but still gorgeous and amazingly fun to be with!

Do farm animals count? May 6, 2012

Got about 40 chickens (2 cockerels who are very noisy)....Actually, make that 39, a raven took one of our chicks yesterday GGRRR.

Then there's the sheep, the lambs,....

The only one I considered a pet, my dog, recently died. Although I have acquired a cat who's practically feral.

You can upload your pictures at no charge. From there you can post photos in forums and such. I would never upload any pictures anywhere directly from my PC. On this website you can choose the degree of privacy.

Absolutely! May 6, 2012

With you there, Nicole!
Mine are two Siamese and very vocal cats. I can even rely on them to keep me company (and awake) when I get up at 5 on a Sunday morning to work...
Love the pics you all posted, but would need to investigate how to do it and I must get back to work or I might as well go back to bed!

Other May 6, 2012

Yes and no! I don't have pets, but my daughter has two dogs (a French bulldog named Tróia and a chocolate Labrador named Jubileu) and I dog-sit everyday for her. They make excellent company!
