Pets and Tri-bu-lations, Oh My

Tues 11/13 Blog Prompt: What pets or animals are you thankful for?

Over the years (and there have been many), I have had plenty of pets. They have brought joy and happiness to my already content life, so that I am thankful for. I guess I am also thankful that alligators are not longer being sold as pets. While it was exciting when I had one, I definitely would have had to put my foot down had it been my children. Some animals are just not meant to be pets.

Then there is the Florida spider, which really wasn't a pet, but we had an understanding. It could live under my fridge and I got to watch it catch the roaches as they went by. I would even talk to it when from time to time. How could you not be thankful for such an industrious creature?

There have been bunnies, squirrels, budgies, gerbils, mice, dogs and cats. In fact, I have two pests, oops, I mean pets now that don't even belong to me. KFKAP and Eregon (a beta fish with a 5 gallon tank and a pirate ship). I am thankful when KFKAP allows me to sleep in past 7 a.m. I am thankful that Eregon is still alive.

A pet spider. Well, if its doing a job, then its a good spider. Right now there is a lizard living under my dogs kennel. Can't ever catch it. Let it eat the bugs. And you know about those love bugs, don't ya??

Definitely my golden retriever, Mabel. I got her as a puppy 3 years ago at age 30 and she's my first dog.

I remember you talking to that spider when I was on the phone with you. Sigh. And the scrapbook page is great. Thanks for sending me one with my face in it!

You have had quite a lot of pets. Who would have thought that alligators could be a pet.
