Ouch! We have known eachother since we were 11 (fifteen years ago), and he hasnt’ had any pets in that time. I know he had a dog when he was little, but I cant’ remember the name!

Zero. He has never had a pet, his parents wouldn’t let him and he isn’t allowed one where he lives now and really doesn’t have the time. He can’t wait until we get a dog though.

He had a half lab/half they didn’t know named Sport when he was little.  His mom and dad thought the dog was a danger to their boys (even though now they admit he wasn’t, they were just scared) so they gave him away when he was 2. 

Then, when they were about 8 or 9 they got a dog named Ginger and still had her when we met, but she died of cancer around 4 years ago.

I’m pretty sure that my SO hasn’t had any pets due to allergies and asthma in his family. (Unless you count on of those "office pet sleeping dogs" as a pet – its name was Mugsy.)  He wants to get a kitten at some point, but not where we are currently.

Barley-cat from college; dog (can’t remember name) growing up; Cloe-cat taken in when friends moved out west; and Sophie & Willy-both cats taken in from family members and we still have. Whew! I bet he can only name the 3 cats I had when I met him-one’s recently died, one went to a new home, and one left with my dad.

Too many to count, the more interesting ones from his childhood would have to be Noah the Boa (his mom has a great sense of humor), the goat, and a bunny (even though he’s allergic)…

I know he had two different dogs when he was young — one was a German Shepherd-and-something-else mix named Sheba, a very big dog.  The other, I know he has mentioned, but I can’t remember. 

They also had a couple of cats at some point, but I don’t remember their names either!  One of them lived to be around 18 years old, and his parents had it put to sleep while he was away at college and didn’t tell him until the next time he came home! I know that I really do know all the names and just need to be reminded. 

I’m easier…I’ve only had two dogs that were really "family members" and I know he could name them.  We had a third for a very brief time when I was about 4 years old, but she had health problems and we didn’t keep her more than a few months.

He had a dog named Hudson growing up.  I never had any pets for a significant portion of time, so I don’t think he knows them.

He had a cat (Mr. Stubbs), a dog (Maxwell) who died last year, a dog (Koper) who lives with his sister, a dog (Phoebe) who lives with his parents, and we have two dogs together (Louie and George).   I don’t think he knows mine, but that might be because I had 3 times as many pets as he did!

He has his (his family) dog Rebel who he loves more then me and I have fully accepted it! ๐Ÿ™‚

He also had a beta fish in college named Timberlake, yes as in Justin, yup he was drunk when he named him.

He ALSO had a plant named Larry —  he likes to name his plants.

Not sure if he had any other fish or plants with names but I think that’s it.

My dog growing up was McKenzie he never got to meet her but he knows how important she was to me!!

Four dogs…The first one when he was little, I can’t remember the dogs name but have seen where he’s buried, a shit-zu named Shemp that lives with his parents and our dogs Keegan and Layla.

Its not fair to ask him how many I have had, its probably at least 100.

he’s had three dogs.  I don’t remember the first one’s name, (then again, I don’t know if he’s ever told me!) Then Nike when he was in grade school-high school, and now they have a little daschund named Pookie!  He’s going to be sooo sad to leave her behind that we may get another long-haired daschund of his (our)own.

I don’t think I’ve ever told my fiance about my childhood pets!  He knows the two dogs and a cat my family has now.

He’s had one dog that he still had when we met (in high school).  Since/currently, he has none (due to space/cost in an apartment/duplex and time he has to devote to it) but can’t wait until we have a house.  I’m pretty sure we’ll have a dog within a month of moving into a house; he’s so excited about the possibility!
