Pets...

Postby PhilGlass » Sat Aug 18, 2012 3:44 pm

Do you share your home with non human creatures? (Wives and teenagers not included in that description).

I have two colico fantail fish, I call them Sharky and George, who were crime fighting fish on TV when I was a kid. Although my Sharky and George have yet to solve any crimes, I do have hope....

You've got fish, I've often wondered...
Is it really OK to put goldfish in a bowl? Doesn't their water need to be oxygenated?

I've got a cat and he's as smart as he is cheeky.
Spoiled to a fault, which is why he's called, Your Lordship :roll:
But for opposable thumbs homo sapiens would be a lot lower on the food chain.

Yes, Putting them in a bowl is cruel.

Yes, their water has special requirements, which is why I have a very expensive and elaborate aquarium set up. The lifespan of a goldfish is between 10 and 15 years. They have a reputation of dying quickly simply because people do not research before buying them.

Ha ha Charlie's revenge... Charlie Steptoe, the unsung hero of Oil Drum Lane! Though I'd be more afraid of the Steptoe version of "The Erotic Adventures of Hercules!"

Dog called Biscuit.

Tropical fish in a decent sized aquarium. My marbled mollies keep having around 200 young every couple of months so must be doing something right. Varying type of food is the key.

Snowy 20 months old, the meanest little West Highland Terrier you could ever meet :twisted: . Barks constantly, hates me - unless I'm eating then he is all palsy :x

My Bullmastiff is 7 years old and Neapolitan is 1 and a half.
My Neapolitan is about 12 stones and still growing. His dad is 16 stone in weight !
Archie's west highland terrier pictured above would get stuck in my dogs teeth :lol:
