.x. I have lived in 8 homes in my life, 7 of which were all in the same town. Homes #6 & up have been with my husband. I lived in NC in another town for about 8 years during high school and college (dorms don’t count toward that total mentioned earlier). I moved to Alaska and home #8 with my husband in mid-2013.
.x. We have a cat named Bonnie. She’s a polydactyl and I’ve had her since she was 4 weeks old (October 2012).
.x. We have a dog named Titan. He’s a black lab/Australian Shepherd mix. We’re his 3rd owners and adopted him in August of 2013 when he was about a year and a half old. He’s a bit of a special snowflake and on doggy prozac for anxiety. Woohoo.
.x. Bonnie & Titan are not friends, much as we wish they would be.
x. My husband and I used to have betta fish. We had 3 ladies at once, but Zhaan passed away after only a few months in our house and Q passed away after about six months and then the white veiltail named Snowflake followed not long after. We had a red crowntail betta fish named Boomer (he looked like a little firework) for about a year. Our first fish was an awesome blue veiltail betta. His name was Voidwalker (we called him Voidy) and we had him for about 2.5 years.
