I Consider My Pets Family

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 45,299 People

    I have had many, many pets I consider family,

    but my top three are my deceased cow, April, my yearling horse, Ruby, and my yearling calf (who was a bucket calf just like April), Foxy. The funny thing is that each of them I have known or raised since birth.

    Today, I'm taking my foster dog of 4 years to

    be put down. She developed a brain mass about 18 months ago and it caused her to go blind first, but we thought it was just macular degeneration since that's a common problem for one of the breeds she's mixed with. She can barely walk anymore and she used to love running around...

    And that makes it very hard

    for me. My dog Harry passed away recently, whilst I'm away at uni. He's been ill for so long, but I kept hoping that maybe I might be at least able to see him again. Or even just be there when he died. I didn't think I'd never see his face again at all. He was in so much pain...

    I have a puppy named Pepe,

    he likes eating, pooping, eating poop, the usual. He is fat and likes to bite my big toe, he tends to also lay on his back when I start walking towards him. He is the best thing that has happened to me and I can't thank God enough for this peace of **** that I love dearly.

    I lost my little cat Kiko last night.

    She got out and got in the back yard with the dogs. They killed her. I'm so sad and feel sick over this.

    I love my cat more than I love most people.

    She's my familiar and other half. I hate it how people think animals can't love or can't feel. I know what love is when she purrs around me with glee or when she gives me kisses (yes, she gives human kisses) and looks in my eyes. She knows me. Knows my soul. My darkness and my...

    After my best buddy died at 11 years old I

    didn't know if I could ever adopt another puppy. But I did and I'm happy, although sometimes I feel guilty that I'm "cheating" on my first dog. It sure is fun to have a young puppy around to play with and train.

    Every morning my cat Timmy jumps up on the bed

    and meows like crazy until one of us lets him under the blankets. He loves to cuddle with me and lay really close to my belly. I love him so much, I find our mornings together very precious :)

    One of my girls is getting dental work today.

    She's a rescue cat and spent her first two years on the streets. That wasn't great for dental health, but she will be much better after today.

    This is my dog. His name is Buster.

    Buster is a beautiful Boxer mix, and we rescued him several years ago. He went to live with my ex, and now I miss him. Truly the sweetest dog I've ever encountered in all my life
