    I have a rescue german shepherd mix named Hera (It's her on my avatar picture).
    She is a high energy and a very smart girl. On our long summer walks we enjoy playing fetch together and swimming in the lake (well, mostly it's Hera who swims and I am just watching).
    She has an incredible sense of smell and one of her favourite activities is nosework. I make her sit and wait while hiding several pieces of food in different places, then call her and she tries to find all of them. If she gets confused by the smells and cannot find anything (which happens very rarely) she looks at me for directions. I point to the direction in which a piece is located and Hera is back on track!
    Being a german shepherd mix she also absolutely loves learning. I've already lost track of how many tricks she knows. We used to do our training almost daily since she was a puppy and for her the most delicious treat is one that's earned by the hard (well, not really so hard) work :)

    New member of our house. I just got it this weekend. I failed my college exam and my parents gave me this naughty girl because I was upset. her name is 'Ponçik' :inlove: we are trying to get used to each other more with her. Her favorite thing right now is to lie on her back, open her paws and make me love her.

    I've had so many animals, dogs, cats, chickens, ducks and even two sheep, they were all wonderful creatures, they have loyalty, devotion, love and countless more virtues, the worst of which was having to leave them when the time came. I don't have any of them and that's a huge understatement, I think animals beautify the human spirit and help us become better people.

    my kitten's name is "Ponçik" dear @sanddollar15 :) There is a vet check on weekdays. They told us to have a veterinary check after three days of getting used to it. I play with him whenever he's not sleeping :inlove:

    I have two cats (neither of them are in my avatar photo, I can't figure out how to get the file size small enough while still having enough pixels)
    I have a silver bengal named Shimmer, or at least I got a silver bengal named Shimmer but she has decided she's someone else's cat. She is getting quite old now and sleeps a lot but sometimes she still goes into crazy zoom mode. I like to play with her when she's doing that.

    I don't want to win the competition. so i didn't add my id. I just want to introduce you to this little friend of mine who is the newest member of our house. I want someone who deserves more than me and has had furry friends for years to win. Good luck to anyone who has furry friends :inlove:

    My first pet's name was Julie. Not even an one month old puppy. Actually it was my uncle's dog. I stayed in my native place for a month. So everyday morning we went to long walk together in the fields. We developed a strong friendship and love. Every time I visit my uncle's house during vacation, we spent time together. Once after a long time I went to my uncle's house. I was talking to them and Julie always was in the backyard. She doesn't come into the house. On hearing my voice, she galloped in her full speed and could not even stop her running to tackle the obstacles in her way which included my uncle's family. They all stopped talking and looked at Julie to find out why she was so exited and came running into the house. They didn't understand the special bond which we shared. She came and jumped on me and greeted me. I was very much touched. Such love. My uncle, aunt and cousins were very much astonished on seeing Julie express her love for me. Sadly Julie lived only for 3 years. To save a calf she fought a stray rabid dog, got bitten by it and died. I still remember her love for me. She has a special place in my heart. I think I will use this thread to share my memories of her with you. Special thanks for this thread.

    My kitty is an orange tabby Maine Coon named Junior Johnson. Although he is quite a hellion, he likes to nap in the cool AC during the dog days of Summer. At night, however, he's back to finding as much trouble as possible!

    Wow! Totally unexpected - thank you for the very special gift. Thanks, also, for having these events. I always enjoy reading/seeing what my fellow farmers share.

    Critters have always been a part of my life so this event was a special treat. Thank you to everyone who shared their experiences and photos.
