Growing up with a veterinarian as a father, we always had pets in the house, and in the barn. We loved each one as a member of our family.

Here is a list of some of the pets we cared for over the years:

  • Chickens
  • Penny the Beagle
  • Sebastian the Yellow Fronted Amazon Parrot
  • Mittens, the calico kitten
  • Emmy the Golden Retriever
  • Cher the Black Lab
  • Megan the German Wired Hair Pointer
  • Blue the Weimaraner
  • Tigger the calico cat
  • Smokey the domestic long haired cat
  • Bagel the Beagle
  • Peachy the hamster
  • Guinea pigs
  • Red eared slider turtles
  • AJ the red crested Amazon Parrot
  • Abe the African Grey Parrot
  • Koi, goldfish, tropical freshwater fish


  • Betsy the Pony
  • Chrissy the Pony
  • Stardust the race horse
  • Rebel
  • Fireton
  • Madison
  • Midsummer Night’s Dream – A cart racing horse that competed at Scioto Downs, Ohio county fairs, and in Florida and other places. This was a partnership with Charles St. Jean, D.V.M.

I’m sure I missed a few, and my siblings will be sure to correct this list.
