The never ending thread had a few posts that should be spun off into their own threads, that combine with a conversation I've been having with Tranplanner leads me to this thread.
Please describe your favourite pet of all time and any funny traits / stories about that pet.
I'll start with a few
1) Cats. My favourite cat of all time was Harvey, the one eared manx. Harv, was able to speak and growl out simple sentences. he got stranded in a tree once and the entire neighbourhood swore it was a small child scraming help me. There are so many stories about him i think I could write a book like Opam Wallen's and Pierre Bertons.
20 Dogs. Tuffy the collie. When my parent's got divorced my father kept the Tuffy. About 6 years later he had to travel on business and needed a place for Tuffy to stay for an extended visit. he brought Tuffy over to our hosue and Tuffy did not recognize us. Then as the day progressed something "clicked" and he all of a suden did recognize us and he went nuts.
3) TP asked me to relay this one and it is also as a request of others with respect to donkey stories.
I tried to get a good photo of Allister and myself on the weekend, but he would none of it
Here it is, and I am serious
He thought we were out to get him.
Because of all of the snow and ice here he and the sheep have not been able to keep the yard clear enough to walk around in. They have a few paths in the snow. When he saw my father and I coming out, he figured something was up that he would not like (feet cleaning, delousing, deworming those types of things). He herded the sheep into the sheep house and would not come out, when I tried to take a picture with him he would turn away or stand in a way that made it impossible to safely take a shot.
