@ DC - Your poodles sound adorable! I LOVE their fur, I find it amazing, the way you put your hand on them and it's so thick and soft, they are always such characters too.
Bonz is very much a Daddy's boy and sometimes won't even come for a walk with me if the OH isn't there, I literally have to drag him round.
Quinn on the other hand just loves people in general, he is the biggest fuss pot! He properly 'smiles' at you too, full on bottom and top teeth! We were reading up about that behaviour in dogs and it actually is a smile, the same as in humans. They don't ever do it to other dogs, only people, fascinating! He was laying on his back for a belly rub last night and was smiling away at me, so cute!

We rescued a border terrier, a few years ago, from a puppy farm, she had been used as a breeding machine, When she came to us, she was so scared, but after showing her, that humans where good, and not bad, she was such a sweet little girl, i know what you mean about smiling, she used to do it all the time.
She know lives with a single lady and her cats, with acres and acres of land, and loads and loads of love xxx
some epic amount of pets listed! I have 2 Goos, 2 Chins and 2 Rats. I seem to have learnt so much in such a short time as it was only June i got the first pet! I got Starrkey the mosaic chinny....but then i got him a bigger cage, which left a spare, so i adopted 2 older rats Dexter and Splinter, literally weeks after getting Starrkey.
Recently though Starrkey started pining LOADS, so i got him neutered and bought him Dita, a black velvet as his girlfriend. THey are SO cute together....
Then i 'rescued' (from pets at home *slaps wrist*) my two Goos the other day!. I have to say though, my P@H have done great with them when i spoke to them about food, bedding and handling, sounds like one of the staff must have them as pets too!

Hi, Not many in my family anymore ... used to having lots of animals around me! I have my 3 goos: Tom, Jerry and Toffee and a dog called Lola - I'm sure she'd eat them if she had the chance! And I have 2 young kids 5 and 8, plus a hubby that won't let me have anymore animals. It took me a lot of convincing to let me have the goos - he only said it was ok for the girls to have a mouse but I wanted an animal that was more interesting for them - I was right, they love them! But I spend more time with them than anyone else
Ahhhh. Hows about Muppet? I've always wanted a muppet... (sensing the next goo who stays may be called a Muppet)
U lot even have me beaten for pet numbers lol!!! Didn't think that was possible! My mum's & sister's kids (they teach) have school pet days where I take in the zoo for them all to play with/look at in the hall!
Besides the abnormal number of goos currently, I've two dogs - Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers (orange border collie things) Rabbit More axolotl than you can shake a stick at Shrimp (they do count -they have their own tank and breeding colonies) Frog Newt Tanks full of little fishies
And... that is now unfortunately all that are left at hotel hannah... recently lost the gerbil (who was adorable)
He's 7 weeks old and really bubbly. He made himself at home almost straight away. Got a video too but not sorted it out yet. The lighting in our living room is quite dark so sadly the photo quality isn't perfect but it'll do.

He is absolutely adorable!! From your photo and sometimes on the video, he looks like he is sort of an orangey colour on top of his back, and then chocolate everywhere else. In Canada we have an orange chocolate ball (do you have them there too? I think US has them as well) called Terry's Chocolate Orange. (They are YUMMY!!!) Anyway, that was the first thing I thought of as soon as I saw him. I would be inclined to call him Terry because of that. OR Peter because of the way he stands up to look through the "fence" and into your room. He's too cute!
