Okay, so they're not really my pets. They're my kids' pets and my wife's pet. Yesterday I put up a poll question asking how many pets before you enter Looneyville, you know, crazy catlady status for example. As I write this, the still active poll is saying the magic number is 5 or 6. For me it's 4. You can still vote on that poll by clicking here.

I mentioned in that poll post that I was talking about traditional pets, like dogs and cats, that had run of the house. I also mentioned that we had 3 contained pets, a lizard and two guinea pigs. So I thought I'd share my small animal menagerie with you.

First, there's my wife's bearded dragon. I never in a million years thought I'd have a reptile as a pet. Then again I never in a million years thought I'd find someone as special as my wife. The bearded's name is Piccolina and I caught her in mid snack in this photo.

Then there's our kids' guinea pigs. Peanut is on the left and Hippy is on the right. They like to stare at me a lot.
