I grew up with a gazillion pets, every type. We always had at least 1 dog and 1 cat. But we also grew up with hamsters, guinea pigs, bunnies, ducks, chickens, lizards, turtles, tortoises, snakes, and birds. My husband on the other hand, my husband never had more than one pet (usually a dog) at a time. Except once when he had a gecko.
Right now we have a German Shepherd, and two cats. I am pretty happy, they are the right pets for where we are in life right now.
So, just kind of as a conversational/sharing board, what kind of pets did you grow up with, and what kind of pets do you have now? Or are hoping to get in the near future.
