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:
- 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
- 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.
