    Does anyone have any other animals living alongside their dog/s?

    We used to have a rabbit called freckles and he fell in love with our black lab called Poppy. She was an old lady and when she could she would sunbathe in the garden... this is when freckles would take his smooth operating skills to high levels.... he would pull out clumps of his fur and make a nest on her!! he was so full of character!

    Aww, I thought you were going to say that Freckles pulled out clumps of Poppy's fur to make a nest!

    We have a Birman cat, Monty, who will be 20 in February. He was 12 when Jasper arrived and though from J's point of view it was love at first sight, Monty was not impressed. It was harder to stop J chasing M than I expected, and M never stood up to J. If he does manage to corner M, J will be gentle, but M doesn't understand that J wrapping his jaws gently round his body is meant to be friendly, and it only takes a gust of air to knock M off his feet nowadays, never mind a 'gentle' lurcher clodhopper on his back:eek:

    Still, M has his own refuge in the bathroom and walk-in (for me; crawl-in for people of average height;)) airing cupboard and gets lots of fuss and attention whenever I go to the loo:)

    I don't personally but some of the dogs that I walk have cats. I've been told that they tolerate each other :) Though they go nuts when they see cats outside. Maybe it is possible for them to get used to another animal in the right circumstances.
