    My favorite pet(s) were my ninja turtles…really…I used to have some. My mom bought me 4 turtles for my class pet when I was in the 4th or 5th grade and I named them after the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

    my favorite pet was a cute kitty named Keisha.

    My daughter would go crazy for this!!

  3. Connie 12/06/2010 at 10:09 am

    My daughter would absolutely love this. She already at five years old knows that she wants to be a vet. But my favorite dog was a cocker spaniel named “POORCHIE” however she was registered as Pork Chop!!! LOL

    We love Dr. Doof and Moldy – our cats!

    Mr. Todd the chihuahua

    I hope we are lucky to win a FurReal puppy. I have a three year old who circles this toy everytime we receive store ads. I am unemployed and this year I’m struggling just to keep the lights on. I hope we win, because Savannah deserves this special gift. She has worked hard this year with her speech disability. I am a single mom who just wants her to have one! I wish I could afford to buy this…..Thank you for the chance!

  12. Amy G 12/04/2010 at 6:27 am

    Believe it or not, our favorite pet is a cow…we’re dairy farmers. Her name, again, believe it or not, is Hank.

  13. Suzanne Bake 12/03/2010 at 9:35 pm

    I loved my dog – Stider and my cat – Suzie while I was growing up!!

  14. Jessica 12/03/2010 at 6:34 pm

    My first childhood dog when I was six. My parents let me name the fluffy Golden Retriever, and I came up with Andy Peacher.

  15. Jake Spurlock 12/03/2010 at 10:57 am

    This is just a test…

  16. Keersten Jensen 12/03/2010 at 10:05 am

    We have a boxer named Jake–he is hyper and a little out of control, but so very sweet. Actually, both my girls have been drooling over this puppy at Target. It would be fantastic to have her come live with us. They think Jake isn’t “posh” enough–those Fancy Nancy girls!

    Oh, now that is cute! My 10 year old daughter has Asperger’s and has asked for a puppy for Christmas. But I live in a Studio apartment and can’t have a dog right now.

    My favorite pet is Brodie. Brodie is a five year old Cairn Terrier (the same breed that was ToTo in Wizard of Oz). Brodie looks just like him. He is an earth dog and has champion papers in obedience and agility. However, he was a rescue dog. The owner and trainer abused him to get him to score so well.

    I got Brodie for my second husband. Brodie is the perfect dog, he never barks, he stays close to you, he can do tricks, he loves to jump up next to you and root around beside you making little grunting noises.

    But in February of last year I lost my 2nd husband. Having Brodie with me was very upsetting and traumatic and I couldn’t care for him. So I sent him to live with my mother on the farm. I now get pictures and stories from my mom on his behavior.

    She’s turned him into a smooshie begging little doggie and he follows my dad around the farm acting like he’s a big farm dog. He loves the chickens and is fascinated by the donkeys. I’m so happy that he has some place to be and I still get to be part of his life.

    JACK-e-Boy…he is the most loving and faithful Lab Mix ever. The kids climb in his dog bed with him and he rolls over to make space for them. BEST DOG EVER!!

  19. Heidi Kingery 12/03/2010 at 5:53 am

    Our favorite pet is our doggy Baxter! He’s such a good boy But, if you had asked me last year, it would have been Incredible Mr. E, our beloved rooster. He has since gone to be in Rooster heaven though. Bless his little crowin’ soul!

  22. Brooke 12/02/2010 at 5:35 pm

    Our first dog was a golden retriever named Sammi. She was practically human! Sadly, she passed away really early at the age of six. I still miss her!

  23. April W 12/02/2010 at 12:03 pm

    My daughter wants this SO bad!!

    My favorite pet was a puppy named Spunky. She was awesome and one of my best friends growing up. 😉

  27. Katie 12/02/2010 at 10:53 am

    I can’t pick just one favorite pet but if I had to pick my top two it’d be my Chiweenie, Jack, and our cat, Skeety!

  28. melissa johnson 12/02/2010 at 10:40 am

  37. Yuki 12/01/2010 at 8:59 pm

    Kayti and Sunny our beagles (too hard to choose just one favorite!) These dogs are forever patient with my two-year old twins.

  38. Rebecca 12/01/2010 at 8:06 pm

    My cat Furball 🙂

  39. Amy W 12/01/2010 at 8:03 pm

    My favorite animal was a very sweet dog named Joy. She was a beautiful Beagle-Blue Tick Hound mix. She was the best natured dog. She lived to be about 13 years old. My next favorite is Emme, which is a Beagle-Heeler mix. I guess I have something for Beagle mixes. Emme is very sweet, but very high strung.

  40. KDo 12/01/2010 at 6:00 pm

    Love it!

  41. Beth 12/01/2010 at 5:56 pm

    Too hard to decide we have Pepper our female Border Collie mix and Teddy Bear our male Poodle Maltese mix both rescue dogs. Love them both.

  42. Christina M 12/01/2010 at 5:38 pm

    Her name was Dulcie, and she was half cat, half gelatinous mass – but all sweetness.

  43. Jenn 12/01/2010 at 11:58 pm
