Thursday 13: Thirteen pets

I had to go back through my archives.  The theme for Thursday 13 is pets.  I’ve kind of posted about this before here.  As I’ve mentioned in the post, we’ve had many pets growing up.  Here’s a list of the names:

  1. Doobie (golden cocker spaniel)
  2. Ginger (a reddish cocker spaniel)
  3. Maxi (dog)
  4. Suzy (a cat)
  5. Misty (a cat)
  6. Quincy (a cat)
  7. Sox (a cat
  8. Snowball (hamster)
  9. Frenchie (hamster)
  10. Gideon (rat)
  11. Star (gerbil)
  12. Pete & Repete (parakeets)
  13. Miss Piggy & Kermit (gold fish)

Happy Thursday 13!

Z is for…


Growing up we had all sorts of pets, not all at the same time.  This includes:

  • Dogs (named Doobie, Ginger & Maxi)
  • Cats (Suzy, Misty, Quincy & Sox ~Named after The White Sox 😛 )
  • Parakeets (Pete & Repeat)
  • Fish ~Goldfish and other assorted Fish (Two of the fish we named Miss Piggy & Kermit)
  • Hamsters (Frenchie & Snowball.  In college I had one named Hammie)
  • Mice (I’m not sure if they had names)
  • Rat (Gideon)
  • Gerbil (Star)

I’m sure we had other pets, but these were the ones that I remember.  I have a pet story to tell, and since this is my blog, you’ll just have to read about it!  HAHA!!

One day we woke up and Snowball was headless.  Frenchie ATE snowballs head.  There was no skull, no brains, no fur, no face.  Nothing was left but a body.  A few days later, Frenchie had passed away.  We guess it was either from a massive furball or severe indigestion.
