I like almost all animals. Not a fan of spiders, though. I worked in a veterinary hospital 70s & 80s. Decided then that I loved all cats. Even the hairless ones. And I decided that there were several breeds of dog that I definitely did not want to own. My three favorite dogs are Norwegian Elkhounds, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, and Standard Poodles. I have owned all three, and absolutely adored them. Have always had cats. They keep you humble. They may love you, but don't kid yourself.... they know they have you trained. Not the other way 'round. And on the farm, I love chickens, roosters, and cows.

And Boose.... if you want your roo to keep ur beer, you'll need to put an ice pack in its pouch. Roo pouches are notoriously warm and cozy. Nothin worse than warm beer!!!!!

I love Pandas!!!!! So cute and cuddly looking. Just think that when they are born they are only 1/4 pound! Still wonder why moms do headstands....

Zoya -- I hate to break this to you, but parrots and rabbits are in the animal kingdom. I'm thinking you meant you're not fond of all animals EXCEPT parrots and bunnies. Right?

if you've ever swam with the dolphins, you can't help but love 'em. can't wait to do it again someday. does anyone have alpacas? my family does, and they're awfully lovable too, but there isn't an animal much sweeter than my little toy poodle either. . . . .hey i could go on and on I just love animals period. And, beer is pretty good too on a really hot day.

I think it is a cross between a pegasus and a unicorn, what some always called a unipeg. but i could be wrong.


I only recently found out that the actual name for a cross between a unicorn and pegasus (or winged unicorn, or horned pegasus, however you want to look at it) is an Alicorn. My sister and I called it a unipeg and thought we were being original.

If we're counting fantasy animals, my favorites are dragons and unicorns and pegasi and alicorns.

But my absolute fave animal in the whole world is my cat Wendy! <3

We had a dog that was 1/2 Rhodesian Ridgeback (Ajax), he terrified the mailman so we had to give him away, Ajax knew when the mailman would come by so he would wait by the fence and then would rear up and place his head next to the mailbox and bark, he couldn't reach the mailman but it did scare him. I was about 14 or so and was mad that we had to give away our dog. the mailman got a note in saying they couldn't deliver our mail while the dog was there, and i said "well they got the note in didn't they?" but now i can understand why they were scared. Ajax never bothered anyone else , he just didn't like the mailman i guess.

Seems to me they could have done something like fence off the area around the mailbox. I hate when people treat animals like disposable property! To me, your pet is part of your family! If it was a human child acting up, you'd move heaven and earth to help the child - why do anything less for a dog or cat???

My dad went and argued with the post office, told them Ajax couldn't reach the mailman, and all he did was bark he didn't lunge at him or anything, just barked, but they wouldn't deliver the mail until Ajax was removed.We were a poor family with eight kids, didn't have the money to fence off around the mailbox. The mailbox was actually outside the fenced yard but right next to the fence. We found a good family for Ajax and actually was able to see him at times. He lived a good, long and happy life. We never treated our animals as disposible property, all of our animals are part of our family. In our family, the young kids were first, then the animals and last my parents. That is why now I'll do anything for my parents.

That's good! I've heard it called "rehoming", when you have to find an animal another home for whatever reason. Sounds a lot better than "got rid of".

I like all kinds of animals. I especially love dogs, monkeys, apes, giraffes, elephants, ocelots, lynxes (wow the list could go on here). But I would have to say that my favourite is the sloth. They are peaceful, gentle creatures with the sweetest faces. There's a common misconception that they are lazy animals. But they don't actually sleep for as long as people think.

Check out this link with pictures and video of the two toed baby sloth and tell me that is not one of the cutest animals you have ever seen!

Hard to pick just one because I like different animals for different reasons. The ones I like most are cats (all kinds from Tigers to house cats), Horses, Birds (Eagles & Hawks to Chickadees), Wolf, Buffalo & Bear.

My number one top favorite is the African Elephant. They are strong, gentle, caring, concerned. I love the big ears of the African Elephant. My second is the horse - breed specific are the Appalussas and the Polish Arabians. The the Ducks and Geese, playful creatures and caring and gentle and very social.

I agree in most casses. Not every one has the time or skills to correct negative behaviour, so allowing another family who has the skills and time is actually kinder to the animal, in most cases. I have trained over 600 dogs and other various anuimlas, so sometimes giving it to a new gamily is better.

I have to say I guess I was destined to have a little Pekingnese dog in my life. My parents had a Pekingnese dog (Jubilee) from the time I was 3 years old and she lived for 18 years. When she died it was like loosing my sister. So I naturally got me a 6 weeks old Pekingnese when my kids were little (Petie). I loved him so much. As he got older, he went blind and had alot of other health issues but he still knew how to get around the house. But unfortunately at the age of 15, he got so sick that after many days of prayer, I had to make the decision to love him enough to send him to God early to wait for me. It was the toughest thing I have ever gone through in my life. The vet and vet assistants were so upset during the procedure. (I of course totally lost it emotionally). Family actually came to the house like a family member had died. My husband dug a grave in the backyard and bury Petie with his favorite stuff babydoll. We place rocks around his grave and planted flowers. My wonderful vet sent me a card with the most beautiful poem in it about doggie heaven. I still have it. Then about a week later, my cousin (who is like my sister) came into my house with a little package. It was a 6 weeks old black and white Peke-poo puppy who had been born without a tail. So she looked just like a rabbit and hopped like one too. It was so bitter sweet...I wanted her but I felt very disloyal to my Petie. I finally made the decision to keep her for the weekend and let her know if I was going to keep her on Monday. During that weekend something happened. At one point, I was looking into my fuzzy new friends eyes dark little eyes and there he was......Petie.... he was staring back at me. I could feel him and became convinced that his little soul has come out of that backyard grave we had dug for him...and placed himself into my new little babies body. Needless to say, I kept my new fuzzy baby (Lilly), who is 5 years old now. She is the joy of my life and so spoiled. So over and above any animal on this earth.....I love my Pekingnese doggies.

Just a reminder to please not type in all capital letters. In the online environment it insinuates yelling. In the future, use regular initial capitalization sentence structure. We do ask for proper netiquette while in the forums...just wanted to give you a heads up; netiquette can be kind of tricky so just stick to regular sentence structure and you'll be fine. After all, this is a user-based Forum so you're actually shouting at your fellow users and I don't you meant to do that...Dee, Volunteer moderator
