The Pet Meme

Thanks to Peter Plum of VeggieTales Review for tagging me for this meme. My family knows I am not really a pet person, so this should be interesting. (If you are not sure what a meme is, then check out The Daily Meme for a definition.)

1. What is the first pet your remember? A long-eared rabbit named Honey.

2. How many different kinds of pets have you owned? Um, 2. Honey and a bichon frise named Alex that I shared with my brother. RIP

3. What was your strangest pet? No strange pets for me, as I'm not really a pet person.

4. What is your dream pet? The one that doesn't need to be taken out for potty duty and cleans up after his self.

5. What is your nightmare pet? Any pet that doesn't come with someone else to take care of it.

6. Your Best/funniest pet story. Alex, the bichon, was a Christmas gift when I was in the 6th grade. My parents had picked him up on Christmas Eve so that we would get him first thing the next morning. The only problem was, he liked to bark and my parents didn't want us to know about him yet. So, they didn't say a word when Nick and I turned the living room tv up way too loud because they knew it meant we couldn't hear the barking.

7. Tell your worst/saddest pet story.
When my parents divorced, I had to give up Honey. I have never been entirely certain what happened to her, but I think she was either killed or released into the wild.

8. Did you ever have a scary animal experience?
I get freaked out by really big bugs that won't leave us alone. It isn't really scary, but they bother me. A lot.

9. What was your favorite pet?
I don't have one. Alex the dog was too much work and eventually, my dad took me as his own, turning him into a trucker dog. RIP Alex.

10. What did you really want to tell us about pets that didn’t fit in the other questions?
A few years ago I really, really, really, wanted a puppy. But Bruce said I couldn't have one, so we had Charlotte instead! I think I got the better deal. Charlotte will take care of us when we are old, a dog couldn't do that.

The rules say I should tag 4 people. So, here you go.

1. Rebecca (because she has been too busy on Facebook to post a blog)
2. Tonggu Momma (because she needs a distraction)
3. Katie D (because I am her blog buddy)
4. Erica (because she promised to post more)

The rules. Don’t worry. They’re easy.

1. Copy the questions to your blog. Answer them. This is the fun part.
2. Feel free to grab the adorable button. (It wasn't working when I wrote this post.)
3. Tag as many people as the legs on your leggiest pet. Probably 4, but if a fish or snake was your only pet then you’re off the hook. If you ever had a centipede, you have my sympathy.
4. Copy the rules to your blog. You’re done. Wasn’t that fun?


  1. LOL...
    I don't have many readers on my blog anyway ;p

    I think I have just three lol

  2. Thank you ~ I'll enjoy this distraction! Watch for it later this week...
