Wednesday Medley Gone to the Dogs

It's just like the Wednesday Hodgepodge, but with a new name and a new "hostess with the mostess"! Much thanks to Terri for continuing our Wednesday Q&A...I'm looking forward to being reacquainted with old friends and meeting new ones.
1.  Have you ever had a special pet in your life?  Will you tell us about it?
I've had several dogs...all of them have been absolutely wonderful. Ally (a Schnauzer) lived the longest: 15 years. Pepper (who passed away about 2 years ago) lived almost as long. If I had to pick just 1, I would have to say Pepper. She was meant to be CH's dog, but she clung onto me and was my shadow. She was one of a kind and I still miss her terribly.
2.  Did you grow up with pets in your home?  What did it teach you?
We had a couple of dogs and a cat at one time. I learned that my dad really was a big ol' softy when it came to the cat. Somewhere there is a picture with the cat on the couch with him and he is scratching behind his ears. My dad was a farmboy...when he decided the cat needed to be neutered, he did it himself. We never saw that cat again! 
3.  Do you ever wonder what animals are thinking?
Oh, all the time! Gurl Dogg is the most vocal dog we've ever had.
4.  Sometimes a pet gets out and doesn't return for a few days. What do you think happens to them when they go on a walkabout?
When we lived in SC, Ally used to wander to a farm the next neighborhood over. She never left for very long. I think the longest she was gone was just overnight. She liked to go over and visit their barn. 
5.  With cats and dogs being the most popular pets, what is the most exotic pet you have personal experience with (didn't have to be yours)?
An iguana. It wasn't mine and wasn't in my house (thank goodness!).
6.  Please tell us something random about your week so far...
Nothing much going on around here, just a lot of rain. The 1 day the sun came out, I had 2 students say, "The sun!" That ought to tell you something!
If you want to answer the questions on your blog, please visit Terri's Blog and link up with everyone else so we can visit each other!!


  1. We had a schnoodle rescue called Pepper. Hope you see more of the sun!

  2. I love your picture of Pepper! I wish they could live longer.
    We had a little sun today too! It was so nice and so good for mood! Loved your answers!! Enjoy the rest of the week.

  3. Thanks for joining in today, Mary!! I had to giggle at your dad neutering his cat!! Ouch!! Loved the photos and the stories!!

  4. Just stopping by to say Hello. I don't do this Medley, I miss Wednesday Hodgepodge :(
    Hope all is well.

  5. We put the lead on our dog and pretty much as soon as the dog hears the click of the lead it stands up and heads straight at the door. It's about this time that we start to get angrier and our first out-burst maybe here, where we yell at our dog and command it to

  6. I've always had cats and dogs. Currently, I have a nasty cat (she was never socialized properly).
    The most exotic pet I've ever had was a hermit crab. It belonged to my three children. It was huge, so they named it B.C. (Big Crab)
