Holy cow--I had no idea that tarantulas lived so long!

My mom was a science and math major, and so she was always doing things like bringing tarantula skins home for us (I think they shed them?). Never saw a live one, though.

sorry, tarantulas and lizzards and turtles are not my style. Gracie is remarkable!... I'm very fond of larger dogs.
I had a monkey and a parrot, I'll try to dig out pics. And I have a chameleon movie to upload to youtube.
I leave you with Blackie and Kiko.


They're my office's dogs actually, but me and DH feed them even of weekends, walk them, take them to the vet, and Blackie as a baby stayed in our home for a few weeks (till he started munching the kitchen chairs...) he's a pure labrador, son and grandson of champions, great pedigree. Unfortunately he now suffers of ostheoarthritis  :(
Kiko was a street dog till he adopted us, when my company moved to our current location. He's so intelligent, he just can't talk.  :D (but he doesn't need to!)

And here's my Cookie:

Norwaygirl, your Gracie really is something! I presume you sleep on the floor next to the bed - there doesn't seem to be much room left on the bed! :o

And all the others are real cuties, too!

Ah why didn't I see this topic before! I love pets, and animals in general ^^
Allergic to dogs and cats though, even though my boyfriend has a cat, and
they (he lives at his parents') are getting a dog soon as well .. I get sneezy
and my eyes start itching but hey! I love animals .. I don't care really lol.

Amazing pictures, love all of them! And that's quite an interesting article Indian ^^

OH  :shock: I opened this thread and, a picture of my beloved Blackie here above gave me a pang in my heart - I'm still mourning him - alas, those 2 dogs are no more. They were so special to me. Poor Blackie lately only wanted our company, since Kiko disappeared last fall to never be seen again Blackie was never the same again. They were inseparable pals. I wish they are somewhere running together and having fun.
I still "greet" the place Blackie used to sit every morning, at the building entrance. I say Hello baby, just like I used to. When I leave I say Bye, big baby, and today I could swear I heard him sleeping and snoring in our office, like he used to.

But, a couple days before Blackie passed away, a stray cat was meowing near the rails, apparently lost and I managed to attract him (or her I'm not sure) with catspeak and food. The cat is so sweet, he must have lived with people, he's not at all wary of people. On the contrary, he lays down on his back like asking us to tickle his tummy, which we do and he loves that. Well, this cat ended up staying at our yard and we have a new watch animal  :D
