About My Pet Blog

My Pet Blog is a blog that has stories about my pets and other peoples pets. The pets may have been pets of the past or current pets. It will also be used to review other pet sites.

Below is the first post I made to this blog, but I thought it was relavant to this page, so here it is, but with a few minor changes.

Pets of My Life

Currently animals that I may take care of on occasion include two dogs: Milton( a terrier sheep dog mix), Pepper(a springer spaniel) and five cats: Herman, Pepper(black cat), Duece, Ditty, and Maggie.

The youngest is either Maggie or Ditty. The oldest is Pepper, who is a black cat that we got around 1992 as a kitten with another cat who recently died, Pumkin. Maggie, Pepper, Duece and Milton live with my kids. Only two cats, Herman and Ditty currently live me. The dog Pepper, is a friends dog that frequently stays with me when her family goes on vacation.

Over the years I have had many pets, mostly cats and dogs. Although I did for a few months have some fish, most of my pets have mainly been either cats or dogs.

As a child living in Maine, we had one cat, a white Persian named Teddy Roosevelt. He later ran away when we moved to Virginia. For a short time when we lived in Maine, we also had a Black Labradore, Bow, who stayed with us while his family was getting readjusted. Great dog, even though he bit me. As a small child I sucked my thumb, and would do so while playing with his ears. I guess he did not like that…oops. I had to get a shot after getting bit.

The next pets that we got were two Siamese cats, Clarence and Mittens. These cats were great loving animals. We had several litters of kittens with them also that could have been considered to be kittens also. Clarence was a very loud cat, so loud that often when my mom was on the phone, people would think she had a baby because his cry sounded like a baby.

We then moved to Pennsylvania, and the cats Mittens and Clarence(this might have been the second Clarence and Mittens) came along. We then for the first time in my life got our first family dog, Lady a dobbermen Pincher. She was not your normal pincher in that her ears were not cropped. She was a big baby, but very protective. I will have to have some Lady stories latter on, because her and I grew up together.

My next cats, came as an adult. At school I actually named my room mates cat Mamma San. Mamma San had a kitten named Gaoogie. He was a really playful kitten( well most kittens are) The next cat that fits into the timeline of my life is my moms cat, BC(Black Cat). BC was an orphan that showed up at my moms house. Then after them would be Pumkin and Pepper, whom came to live with me and my girlfriend, who later became my wife. (now exwife) After my sons was born, we got Duece who was originally Dueceldorf. Then came Milton the dog.

So as you can see from this time line of my life with pets, I have had pets around me for most of my life. I think life with pets is a very normal way to live, and find it hard to believe that there are people out their that do not have any pets.

Well I am going to wrap up this the first post to my Pet Blog because it is 9pm and the two cats, Diddy and Herman require my attention. I feed them at 9pm and first thing in the morning.

If you have any interesting stories, please make a comment.

  1. Hey, my name is Anthony Ngo and I’m involved in an online pet community website called PetPop.com. I was hoping that you would have a minute or an hour (haha) to check out the site and write about it on your blog?

    I may be going out on a limb by asking you for promotional help through your blog, but I hope you find PetPop.com to be as news worthy as I perceive it to be. Also, the site could be a huge benefit for your readers to know about. Well, I hope to hear from you soon and thank you for your time.


  2. Groovy Web 2.0 site for Pet owners Anthony. I will see what I can do for you.

    In the mean time, I was on the new pet forum on Pettags.com. That might be a good site for you to network on as well.

  3. Hey,

    My name is Michael Ghadamian and I am involved in an online community for petlovers currently in production. I am launching in january ’08 – I would love for you to do a review of the site once it is up – please let me know if you are interested – I could send you some screen shots and such…check us out – http://www.anamigo.com

  4. Please check out our new website, chock full of free nitty-gritty details to 1) help find lost pets, 2) help pet owners relate to why we all must keep our pets safely and lovingly confined, 3) details to assist those who want to change the lost pet system. The information presented on http://www.animal-pounds.com was gathered over a period of many years of helping lost pets and owners reunite.

  5. Dear My Pet Blog,

    We’re working on an exciting new social network site for pet owners, animal lovers and their pets. The site is called All About Pets and The Blue Cross, Britain’s pet charity, is behind it.

    All About Pets has not yet launched (if you go to http://www.allaboutpets.org.uk you’ll see the old holding page). The official beta site will launch soon.

    I wondered if you would be interested in receiving information about the site as it’s being developed – it will also be a good opportunity to hear your thoughts on the site so that we can improve things.

    Can we have your permission to keep in touch and update you with exclusive information and sneak previews prior to launch?

    Best wishes,

  7. The Blue Cross, Britain’s Pet Charity since 1897, have now launched the official beta site of its new social networking site.

    ‘All About Pets’ (http://www.allaboutpets.org.uk) has been developed by the charity to give pet lovers a new way to communicate, and a place where they can meet like-minded people to share experiences or advice about their pets.

    All About Pets is completely free to join. Members can create profiles for themselves and their pets, upload photos or links to videos and showcase their pet’s talents. They can also view other people’s pets, photos and videos and even rate them. Members can take part in discussion forums and polls on topical subjects, promote their own events or find out what is happening in their area, and get the latest in pet news.

    The advantage of All About Pets over other social networking sites is that it also works as an authorative and reliable information directory. The Blue Cross has produced over 80 leaflets on all aspects of pet care which are available to view, print or download free from the site. Pet owners with specific problems or those with advice to share can also set up forums and social groups to discuss ideas across the entire network.

  8. Hi,

    Very nice pet blog you have here. Found your pet blog after searching information for on pets. Thanks for the great information, particularly I like the “Stop Animal Abuse” article.

    I’m a bearded dragon hobbyist and I’m developing a website for bearded dragon as well. Here, you may find information http://www.beardeddragoncare.net It will be completed within this week. Do you think any area that I can improve?

    I’ve seen your blogroll that you have many friends’ website on each type of pets, but there is no bearded dragon caring website. Would you mind to add mine as part of your blogroll to provide information on bearded dragons? I hope I can create more awareness to the pet owners by providing the care information that I gain from my experiences.

    Great efforts for your website and keep it up. I’ll recommend it to my friends and family for those who would like to know more about dogs and cats.

    Thank you.

  11. Hey Anthony,

    Good news… just over three weeks since the launch of All About Pets, the social network site for pet lovers, and the site now has over 1,500 members!

    Unlike other social networks, All About Pets is an authoritative and reliable pet care information directory.

    Fact 1: To date, the most popular information people are downloading on the site are ‘watching the waistline’ and ‘agility for dogs’.

    All About Pets is FREE for everyone. Members can create profiles for themselves and their pets, upload photos or links to videos and showcase their pet’s talents. They can view and rate other people’s pets, photos and videos and get the latest in pet news.

    Fact 2: Latest news on the site includes a story about a dog who married a boy and a dog who prays at a Buddhist temple!

    Members can promote their own events or find out what is happening in their area and take part in polls and discussion forums.

    Fact 3: Bunny tantrums and The smell of fox poo are some of the current forum topics on the site.

    There are lot of new developments in the pipeline and we’ll keep you posted as they happen.


    All About Pets is the social network site from The Blue Cross, Britain’s Pet Charity since 1897.

  12. Hi:
    I have a product that is taking the pet market by storm. It’s called the FoodCuber and it’s all about portioning and storing food in recipe-ready amounts like 1/2 cup, 1 cup or 2 cups in just one step.

    It is ideal for anyone making their own pet food, “raw” dieters or even for those buying food in bulk and looking for a way to conveniently store meal-ready amounts.

    FoodCubers have been written up in the AKC National Newsletter (11/07) and in Dog World (1/08) and Cat Fancy (2/08). They are recommended by vets because of their ability to help battle pet obesity.

    I’d love to ask you to look at the product and write a review about it.

    You can read all about it at http://www.foodcuber.com.

    Thanks very much,
    Lisa Brock
    FoodCuber Queen

  15. Hiya,
    Unlike a lot of people on your comments, rather than asking for something, I just wanted to forward this link because I thought you may find it funny (if you do, maybe you could post it for other readers too). Given how many cats you have, I imagine you’ve had similar situations to this:


    I actually ended up buying one of these cat boxes on the advice of a friend and it’s made a huge difference. Tigger, my tabby, no longer gets stressed out over going to the vets so it was definitely a worthwhile purchase! I thoroughly recommend one if you have the need.
    Best wishes and I look forward to more cat posts!

  16. If you are looking for information on buying your first Guinea Pig, & want to know which breed to pick thats suited to your lifestyle. Or perhaps you’ve had a Guinea Pig for years, & looking for some fantastic reading material or want to be in contact with like minded people.
    All people welcome, also we have a lot of gifts for the Guinea Pig, its owner, and gift for other friends who own Guinea Pigs, like Guinea Pig Clocks, tshirts, stickers, Mugs!
    Have a browse, subscribe to us to keep in touch.
