Day 29: Your Pets

As I don’t currently have any pets of my own, I decided today I’d post about all the pets I’ve had in the past today.

The first pet I ever had personally was a hamster named French Fry, inherited with the name and all from a friend. He ended up having kids, and my sister and I got to have one of his kids each. We named them Prince and Banana Split, but unfortunately, they didn’t live very long. All three were great starter pets, and they definitely kept us entertained.

Our family also got a dog shortly before the hamsters, and her name was Jerzy. She was a Newfoundland and Lab mix, and she passed away a few years ago. She was a very caring and empathetic dog, but also expected to be treated as a queen. She liked the snow, swimming, and dragging people on walks in her younger years. You can read more about her in this post.

The last dog we had was named Jypsie (among other nicknames), and she passed away suddenly this last Christmas. She was adopted, and my family originally got her as a friend to Jerzy in her old age. Jypsie was a giant suck up, great heat warmer for the couch or your bed, and always was in a good mood. She was very good at escaping and was very catlike as well. You can read more about her here.

Hopefully there are more pets in my future, but for now I’m content with looking after a beta fish for the summer.

What pet(s) do you have, or want to have? Let me know in the comments!
