My Pets

My family have had many pets (and children) over the years ...



The 'Cookie' Monster
'King Dripslobber'

'Harley' Davidson

The Honourable 'Gillespie'
'Hershey' Bar

Sadly the only surviving pet (or child) here now is The 'Cookie Monster'.
We are thinking of having some more as she is very lonely.
Any suggestions?

How about ...

Michio Hoshino, a Japanese photographer known for his wildlife photography, was mauled to death by a brown bear on the Kamchatka Peninsula in eastern Russia. This was the last photo he took.

Michio Hoshino was a Japanese photographer famous for wildlife photos.
He was mauled to death by a large brown bear in Russia in 1996.
 This was the last photo he took!

Animals are very scary indeed!


  1. WHAT an awful last picture to have to take !! I think the cookie monster has a much kinder face xx I have 2 dogs who keep me company and make me laugh, for many years we also had 3 cats... life is never dull with animals in it xxa

  2. wow ,let me have the pets i have not a large brown bear it must have been awful ,we have a old cat 21years and two dogs to keep us company :))

  3. Weve had almost as many pets, although no dogs, chickens or brown bears! Weve had 7 cats (in pairs), two budgies (15 years apart), 16 peach faced live birds (started with two: a successful breading pair, obviously) assorted gerbils and hampsters, a rabbit and an african pygmy vanilla tipped hedgehog! imagine how much we must have spent on pet food, insurance and vets bills!!!!
