I've already got 1 of the 2 that I'd like which is my african grey parrot (remember I'm not counting poodles). I will put up pic's of my critters one of these days. But the other is one I've wanted since I was 8 years old. A horse!
Unfortunately I've had enough years to narrow it down to one particular breed and possible breeder. Akhal-Teke - Home
Sigh...

Anyone else have a Dream Pet?

Hm.. besides dogs there's not many things I think I'd want? Maybe a couple chickens, I don't know. :)
Why chickens? So you can eggsploit them?

I can't think of any. If I could get any other pet at this very moment, I think it would be a toss-up between a powder puff crested and an Abyssinian cat. Or hey, as long as we're just wishing, maybe both. :)

Eggs would be a bonus.. because I KNOW they would be free ranged eggs, obviously..

But I think they're cute C: I'd want a fancy chicken though.


Hi, I'm a fancy chicken.


OOOH! I know what my other dream pet would be. A falcon ^^ I'd LOVE to hunt with a falcon!

I once saw a falconer and his bird in Dubai. It was awesome! I remember wanting one then.

Couldn't have one now because Teddy would probably annoy him so much that he would carry him off somewhere and I'd never see him again. :D

Besides dogs in general and standard poodles specifically, my "other" dream pet would also be equines (we have two, a QH and a Suffolk Punch) Their pictures are here: http://www.poodleforum.com/8-other-animals/3889-horses.html

I've always had cats too - which I love; and tried rabbits and cockatiels which weren't as glamorous as I had first hoped :lol: I've decided caged pets aren't my cup of tea and probably won't ever get another caged animal again as mine pass away - but bring on the dogs, cats and horses and I'm a happy girl!!

I also have an African Grey which has always been one of my dream pets. I would love to have a horse one day and have always wanted one. Other than that I just love dogs and always plan to have one lol.

I love birds, and rats, and rabbits, and and and.... but I'm sorta over caged animals now, I still have 3 rats, but I don't think I'll get any more for a while once they're gone (omg! 14 years of owning rats and I'm thinking of no more!??? Ugh)

I also love horses, and have had my wee boy for 12 years now, but I got him when we had our own land, now that he's grazing elsewhere I'm not in any desire to get another any time soon, though I can see myself being tempted if we get any land oneday.

Another animal I'd be tempted to get if we go back to a farm is goats. A pair of nubian milkers and I'd be in heaven, I *do* really really miss hand milking my cow every day, and I miss her soooo much and cry every time I go to visit still, but I don't *really* want the hassle of a cow or two either. A goat or two would suit me nicely though...

But dogs are my love and passion.

so this may seem nuts, but I always have wanted (although I know they don't exist) a miniature killer whale, like small enough to fit in an aquarium :eek:hwell::bird::eek:hwell:

Marian, I also have secret longings for a powder puff crested... I think they are adorable, and I've also seen them kick butt in Obedience and agility.

I live in a city that doesn't allow them, but I would love to join the urban chicken movement and get a couple of layers. We eat a lot of eggs.

I'ts great to see that I'm not the only one who suffers from MPS (Multiple PET Syndrome). I prefer pets that don't have to be caged all the time, hence no fish in my future.
Winnow, what kind of snake are you thinking of. I use to have a Mexican Kingsnake. Lovely temperment.

I would love to be able to grow my family of cats and dogs - and to keep horses again. Perhaps miniature horses, or a pair of Welsh Mountain ponies to drive ... ah well, next time around perhaps ....

I would love a squirrel AND a chipmunk. They are too cute. Of coarse I would not want the fleas and mess, but I think they are adorable. My dream horse is a Gypsy Vanner (huge long manes and tails and feet), My dream Cat is a Selkirk Rex (poodley fur), And my dream bird would be a Yellow Naped Amazon.

Besides dogs and cats (which I'll always have), I would love to get some goats! My parents are thinking about getting a couple minis in a few years. One of my good friends breeds them and her goats are GORGEOUS! Wonderful temperaments too.
I used to foster small exotics (mainly sugar gliders and chinchillas) so I might get back in to that if I'm ever healthy enough again. I was one of the few foster homes willing to take in special needs and I know many people don't have that kind of time/knowledge.

My other dog breed is Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. However, that won't happen until my kids are out of the house, since they are both terribly allergic to dogs (it's a challenge to continue having our short-haired dog in the house, especially when she is shedding a whole lot like right now). Having a poodle for them has been nice.
We are all allergic to cats, and I can't handle litter dust (even the crystal kind).
My husband is anti-rodents and I'm anti-reptile/amphibian, although my kids keep eyeing the chameleons at the pet store, and I'd be OK with a chameleon, since I have non-pet geckos in my house (it's Hawaii, they are good luck, and they eat bugs!).

Once we are settled somewhere for good, we want to get a salt water aquarium. Right now, we have two mutant goldfish and an upside-down catfish, so we'll have to see.
