Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music, please!):
1) What were your family pets? What were their names? How long did they live? What stories do you have about them?
2) Tell us in your own blog post, in a comment to this post, or on Facebook or Google+. Please leave a comment on this post with a link to your post.
I wish I had scanned images of all of the pets I had as a child. My first pet that was truly mine, was a white cat named George "Sparky" Anderson. He was a really kick, by liking to sleep at the foot of my bed under my covers.
My mother gave us a really old cat when we got married named, Patty. She wouldn't clean herself and Norman had to give her baths, which she didn't like. She had teeth problems and we had some surgery done. Then one day she disappeared and we never found her. That was our last cat.
Since then we've had dogs, all Australian Shepherds: Sebastian, Samantha, Libby, Toby, and Sidney. Here are a few digital shots of some of the pets:
Right now we're between pets. It does make it easier to travel without having to worry about them. But there is a lonely spot, too. I'm sure when the right one comes along, we'll be drawn to have another pet.
