    Yeah, something nice and non-divisive. I am sure we all appreciate animals.:)

    Kirsten Moore-Towers has a Pommy named Frodo.

    Knew there was a reason why I've always liked her. ;)

    She also has or had an adorable small white dog, but no idea what kind. Guessing it was a Terrier of some sort. I can still see in my mind's eye the picture she posted to Twitter back in the Spring. There was that one week where it pretty much did nothing but rain for two straight days. On one of those days, he managed to get out and...

    He had fun. Kirsten did not. What a sight and mess he was.

    Kurt Browning and his Family used to have a Porteguese Water Dog named Leah. I remember either reading or hearing him talk about the day she passed away. She was fine in the morning and then....*And* only a week and a bit from Christmas that year too. As he said, trying to explain that to two little boys? :(

    I don't know if they ended up getting another Porti or not. IIRC they also had a cat, but I don't know if they still do or not.

    I think Mao Asada has dogs, and of course one of them has appeared on the ice with her ;)

    Brian Joubert has always had pets - I'm not sure which are still around, but there are or were dogs (including the very cute Blade), snakes, fish, possibly turtles, and parrots.

    I believe I once read that Adrian Schultheiss has a tarantula. But this may be wrong, and I'm not going to investigate it any further :D

    I need new glasses. I thought the title of this thread was "Figure skaters & their pests."

    Joubert likes snakes? Suddenly I like him much more! I know Adrian Schultheiss had a boa constrictor. Gwendal Peizerat had a snake named Gustav. Don't know if they still have them.

    I remember reading something about Jeff Buttle having had two Golden Retrievers several years ago.... Not sure if this would be one of them though, or another dog altogether, since it has been a while. If my memory serves me right, I believe that one of the ones he had before was named Guinness.

    Mao's Earo gave birth to two daughters(Komachi and Tiara) several years ago. Their photo eased my broken heart after the US Nats. :inavoid:
