Well I have had several types of pet, some ones are unbelievably wonderful.

My first pet was 4 years old it was a baby goat, I remember it used to recognize me and run to me, died after I fed him my cheese sandwich :(

Had other unusal pets including a baby cow when I was nine years old, that was one the best pets ever: we used to live in a farm this baby cow was incredibly smart, it knew very well her name me and my brother used to play with it, it recognized our voice whenever we approached it rushed immediately to us. however that was a pet that we couldn't bring home :silly:
On our balcony in the sixth floor we had some baby chicken that grew up, just like goldfish used to eat and eat and eat, when the roosters started singing in the morning the neighbors complained and they were sent to a farm.
of course I had dogs and cats and hamsters but those are somewhat usual pets

I`ve always lived in the country so had loads of the usual pets like dogs and cats. Also we had lots of lambs and calves which we had to rare for various reasons and they always stayed friendly even after they went back to the paddock with their mates. We also had a couple of cockatoos, whick were rescued after falling from their nests, a galah and a couple of kangaroos. The kangaroos were free to come and go whenever they liked but spent much of their time stealing the dogs pellets or harrassing my mother :laugh:

Oh and i forgot my python, it died one winter when the heater stopped working.

The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.

growing in the countryside, one must rear anything that could survive the range..
like chicken, goat, pigs/hogs, cows, horse, carabao, and dogs....at one point
i had plenty of pigeon and quails where we sell the youngs and the eggs...

Hey Noddy, i know Cocker Spaniels have big ears but not big enough to fit a guinea fowl in, i thought they were big and fat much bigger than chooks but maybe i`m thinking of somethig else haha

And i`m glad you asked what a carabao was because i didnt know either :laugh:

carabao is the farmers partner in the farming works... tilling the land,
pulling a cart full of harvest and many more....
