Let’s talk about our other pets!

  • #1
I'm new to the forum and want to get to know everyone. So, what other kinds of pets do you have besides fish? Also what kinds of fish do you have? I have a dog (American Stafforshire Terrier/ Husky mix) and a hamster. For fish, I have a Dwarf Gourami, a couple panda corys, a mystery snail, and an upside down catfish.

I keep pearl gourami, cory catfish , swordtails, guppies, neon rosy barbs, glolight tetras, and endlers.
I also have a cute little dog named Lola, she is a shitzhu, Maltese, toy poodle mix. I also have 50+ chickens and just rehomed my ducks.
I used to keep ducks and chickens, also guinea hens. My chicken population turned cannibal though and ate their own eggs

Also thousands of miscellaneous animals on my land

Eggs are their favorite food! It’s not really cannibalistic until the eggs have been incubated for 21 days.

I have a Domestic Medium Hair (Mixed Breed) cat that my sister named Herbert (only because she was young and it kinda half rhymed with sherbet). he is an outdoor cat because the neighbors don't mind and he was a farm cat before we got him, so he needs exercise. I also have an adopted Catahoula Leopard Dog named Charleigh and shes a sweetheart. My fish are 2 angels, 3 peppered cories, some pygmy cories, 2 otos, a female apisto, a whole ton of guppies, some khulI loaches, a lone rummynose tetra (his school had some... casualties. working on getting more), 2 bristlenose plecos, a panda garra, and three goldfish.

One small rescued Yorkie. Could not be sold for big money because he has alopecia. He is great, but a little pig and would eat until he busts wide open.

We had a Shiz Zue. Sorry about the spelling, but he was and is the best dog we ever had. Reliable and was at my wifes side until we had to put him down.

I just recently had to have my Jack Russel/dauchsund mix put down. Her name was Lucy and she was the best dog, I had her for 18 years. I don't think she can be replaced. And then there's Arie: our 6 year old boxer/doberman mix. She's neurotic and a delicate little flower. Then we also have Kirra: She's our 2.5 year old Border Collie/Flat coated retriever mix and she is chocked full of rambunctious energy. She is hard headed, persistant, relentless, addicted to fetch, and harrasses me constantly with her toy, but I can't help but love her to pieces because she makes such a scene whenever my car pulls into the driveway no matter how long I've been gone. I can't complain about the unconditional love she displays towards me. She's a good girl on the inside. I understand her. Then there's Gemma: The newest addition to the family, a 2 year old Silver Domestic Medium Hair Mix that I found in our garage one night when it was raining, she hopped right up in my lap and snuggled for an hour or so until I realized that she must belong to someone since she was so friendly and loving, so I took her to the animal shelter before I got to attached, after a week I called to check in on her assuming she had been picked up by her owner already only to find out that she was still there and now being offered for adoption, so I went ahead and went back down to the shelter and adopted her and brought her home. She's decided she is strictly an indoor cat on her own and never leaves our bedroom which is good because I don't really believe people should let their cats roam, so she's a perfect fit. Gemma Kitty provides us with a whole new world of kitty shenanigans we didn't even realize we were lacking.
And as for aquatic pets: 2 african dwarf frogs, 3 plecos, 3 male bettas, 12 glofish tetras, 4 white skirt tetras, 2 black skirt tetras, 2 platinum guppies, 2 dalmatian mollies, 2 turquoise sword tail guppies, 1 green cory cat, 1 blue platy, 1 gold platy, 3 koi, 2 oranda's, and 1 shubunkin. And of course the aquatic collection is always growing.
Lucy- Words cannot even express how much I miss this dog- and how much I wish that there was something else I could have done to keep her here with me. I just find comfort in knowing that she is no longer in pain. Forever my puppy.

I have assorted fish, a sweet pup,
and several chickens. This is one of my favs, Baby.
She got an injury on her vent area before we got her. When chickens she something like that they will peck it. Strangely enough, chickens love the taste of blood... We had a smaller coop for chicks that we weren't using, so that became her new home. She could graze with them, but when they were in their coop at night they bullied her. She was my chicken and I can usually come up with names right away. I couldn't come up with one that was perfect for her, so I just called her Baby. It stuck and she learned to come to me when I called her name. She recently passed away, but I loved her. That reminds me... once we had a group of hens whom I would let out every morning. I would whistle "50 Nifty United States" as they would run after me to get their morning scratch. I had some friends over a few weeks later who wanted to see them. They were deep in the high grass so I couldn't go get them. I told my friends I had an idea. I started whistling the song and 6 balls of fluff/feathers came hurtling at us. Sorry for the rambling, but I recently got a new girl whom I named Comet. (She is a golden Comet chicken) Over the period of the whole quarantine thing, I managed to bribe her to come when I say Comet. I will post pics if y'all want.

I know this forum is called "Fishlore" and that is why we are here but... who said we can't have pets that are not fish? haha
Do you guys have any pets that are not fish? Do you think they are easy to care for? I have lots of fish as well as two birds, and I wouldn't say that they are the easiest to care for, but it is worth it. hilarious
  • #29
I have dogs, barn cats (they were abandon here), parakeets, bearded dragon, mini horses, goats, donkeys, chickens, and ducks.

I live on a farm so I have a big list but most of them do not live in the house haha!
  • #30
I have had pretty much everything at one point or another, but I currently have a doggo, a kitteh, a ball python, a corn snake, a leopard gecko, a crested gecko, rats, a blind mouse, and some darkling beetles. I've been thinking about getting some garter snakes too, but haven't pulled the trigger on whether to get them or just upgrade my corn snake's house.
  • #31
We actually have a whole section of the forum that is dedicated to nonfish related creatures, activities, and other informing pieces. It is further down towards the BSTF section of the forum. You will likely find ones for dogs, cats, wild and tame creatures of all kinds.
  • #32
I have 1 dog (Belgian Malinios), 2 cats that used to live in the house, but now live in barn, and fish
  • #33
I have one dog, and her name is Molly. We are getting a flock of chickens soon.
We had another dog before Molly but she got run over by a car on a bike ride down our road.

Here's Molly. She's two years old.

  • #34
Oh yeah, forgot pics
Lol. Third pic is Elsha (my dog) "social distancing"
Oh, and Cowboy, my horse. He's technically my aunts, but they don't ride him, so he's my spoiled baby.
