How did you reach the number of dogs/pets you have? Do they all get along? Didi I've had for about 5yrs.,she was given to me. The birds were also given to me. Pepe was my mom's idea as a ''replacement'' for Lucky who recently passed away. At first I didn't bother warming up to him, since I was still coping with the loss of Lucky, but now we're the best of pals. Didi is not a very social dog (to dogs). Lucky was a stray who we picked up. Sometimes they got along, sometimes they didn't. He's the first dog, Didi I've seen ''slept'' with, even though she had bred before I got her, I never thought she would ever let another male dog touch her. Unforunately the pup didn't survive. They weren't neutered, due to money. But Didi's in the process of getting spayed soon, thanks to this program for low-come families called S.P.O.T. (stop pet overpopulation together), spays/neuters dogs for only $10 with rabies vaccine & tag included. Pepe's already neutered since we got him from a shetler. Him and Didi bear with each other, but I never seen them bond. They have this game where they bark and chase each other on from the bed and the other on the floor. I don't know if its ''play'' or sibling rivalry. The birds get along good with each other, the cockatiels & the parakeets. The cockatiels sometimes fight with each other, but nothing to serious. The dogs are more afraid of the birds then the birds are afraid of the dogs. But I never put them together, wouldn't want to end up with one less pet. When they did join, the birds were on the floor at the dogs with my supervision of course just chase them around the house, but I don't think the birds enjoy it, so I separate them. I don't think the dogs like to get biten by the bird's beaks neither.
