So I’ll go first and get the ball rollin’!
Here is my baby girl! She’s a year and a half old Yorkshire Terrier. She’s a whopping 9 pounds, which is on the larger side for the breed. But since she’s not a show dog, I was hoping she’d not get any of the usual issues of small dogs being inbred for extreme tiny size (hypoglycemia, seizures, drastically shorter life span). (I could rant for hours on how there is NO "teacup" anything! But instead, I'll just link this article link
and keep my mouth shut lol.) She’s hearty and hyper! And she has a thing for tennis balls and anything that crinkles or squeaks. Plus, she loves to sleep under the covers with me.
Now these two dogs I helped raise when I was in middle school/high school but then when I moved to college they became the “family” dogs. But I still somewhat consider them mine, especially since I named and trained them.
The big one is a Border Collie mix and the medium one is a Scottish Terrier mix. They’re both 9 years old, born in the same month even. They are definitely sisters – protective but prone to disagreements. When all three dogs get together, they’re hilarious!
And then there’s the cat. He was a rescue and was an adult by the time we got him. Not to mention my parents wasted no time in getting him neutered and de-clawed within the first month of owning him… I think those are all the reasons that he’s anti-social. Poor guy. Also, he has no tail. And as far as we know, he wasn’t born with one to begin with. There’s never been any sign, physical or visual, to indicate otherwise. He’s 10 years old.
