OK, we'll let mom handle this one.
Thanks, pups! I'll keep to an animal theme:

1. The first pet I can remember was a parakeet. My mom always had a parakeet or canary when I grew up. The most unusual one was a rust-colored canary with flecks of orange on his wings. I still love birds, and maybe I'll have one again sometime (when I don't have a house full of predators!)

2. My first pet of my very own was a hamster named Buttons. He was all white and had bulgy red eyes. He was really cute. I had a second hamster named Raisins (after the dark spot between his ears), and I dearly loved that little golden-brown hamster. We played together all the time. He got lost inside my piano for a week once, we finally found him after the piano started making some rather ghostly sounds one night!

3. We got a dog when I was about 10. He was from the pound, a little cocker-mix. His name was Tex, and he was lots of fun. My 2 brothers and I learned a lot about responsible pet ownership from that little guy. Every kid should have a dog. (provided they are taught how to treat them right)

4. I tried bringing home strays, but I was never allowed to keep them, darn it.

5. I wanted a kitten, but my dad really really didn't like cats.

6. My first pet when I moved away from home was a sweet little tabby cat named Amber. I owned cats for the next 30 years, probably about 8 of them. My last cat, ChowChow, was with me for almost 16 years. He was a Siamese cross, his coloring was like a ragdoll, but he had short fur, and beautiful blue eyes. We had also owned his litter-brother, a handsome black & white boy named Puss In Boots. He eventually picked out a nice country home for himself... (apparently he didn't want to move with us.)

7. We've been owned by 6 dogs. (5 Siberians & 1 Rottie-Aussie mix). I think we're officially addicted to Siberians. (Is there a program for that?)

Ha-roo roo roo, mom is so funny! Well, we're glad she's addicted to Siberians!

We asked her to put a picture, and she said here she is with her first puppy! Can we hear a big "Awwwww!" please?

We'll be passing this award on to several of our blogging pals, hope they have as much fun with it as we have. And thanks again to 5 Sibes fur thinking of us!

A-roos to yous, and toodle-woo,
jack a-roo & miss moo
and our mom, Pat

Congrats and great sharing. Mom had canaries when she was a child and then again as an adult - she even had two that mated two times - now that is a funny story.

um, i wonder if you like sibes because sibes are like.... (not gonna say it but i'll hint)... the furry thing that says "meow." i mean really, they act like them (aloof, stubborn, their own thinkers, playful, etc.)... but they don't say meow... so that's why i think woo like sibes...

but i won't tell jack or moo...
