Pets have been around for as long as I can remember (which is quite a while). They have also been on many, many television shows over the years. Some of them have carried the entire show. They entertain, amuse and amaze with their tricks and talent. Here are some I actually remembered and some I found looking around the internet. As I was thinking and looking so many memories of these beloved pets returned. Go ahead and read through them and see how many of them you remember. If you remember any that are not listed, please let us know.
If you have a pet then you understand the dreaded visit to the vet. It is one of those duties that must be preformed but you don’t like it. Well you’re not along, neither does your pet.
Many people are not real fond of going to the doctors’ or dentists’ office. We however understand why we are there and the need to be there. Our pets on the other hand are completely clueless of the need for the visit.
I received an email from a dear friend with The “Fable of the Porcupine” and some adorable pictures of a baby porcupine. Not knowing very much about porcupines I searched the internet to learn more.

There are about two dozen species that all have a coat of needle-like quills. Considering there are only two species of beaver, twenty-four porcupine species surprised me.
This is a heartwarming story that should teach us humans how to get along. I came across the story at dailymail.co.uk as I was searching the web for interesting information to share.
It’s a role reversal not commonly seen, but then the cat chasing this dog is a little larger than most. Salati, a ten-month-old leopard, and her best friend, golden retriever Tommy, like nothing more than to run around together before settling down for a friendly cuddle. The odd couple were reared together at the Glen Afric Country Lodge near Pretoria, South Africa.
Are you shopping for a pet, but tired of the same old cats, dogs, gerbils and birds? Perhaps you should consider adopting a pot-bellied pig. The first image that pops…
The Real Star of Night at the Museum Battle of the Smithsonian
Crystal, the Capuchin monkey who played Dexter in Night at the Museum (2006) is back in the sequel, Night at the Museum Battle of the Smithsonian(2009). The kids and I watched the movie last week and I’m again fielding questions about why we simply cannot have a pet monkey.
