We have Logan, a husky, inside.

Chloe, a chihuahua who is an indoor outdoor dog.

Minnie Pearl is an outdoor cat.

And we keep between 30-50 chickens.

We have used the chickens for a school lesson. Incubating eggs and watching them hatch is some great schooling!

Four kids are enough on the pet front right now. We may get a dog or a cat once the younger two (19 months and 4 months) are house trained... I mean potty trained. Also we cant have pets in the house we are renting. But i eventually want to have chickens and animals heck maybe even a milk cow.

We have a Golden Lab named Goose (after Maverick's Wingman on Top Gun).  A cat named Holstein because he is black and white like a holstein cow.  And another cat named Memphis, because that is where I was born and raised.  We had a box turtle named Gazelle but finally set him back out into the wild as we were just afraid he wouldn't fair well in captivity.

Cool a fellow Top Gunner!!  Most people hear us say we have a dog named Goose and think we are retarded, they just don't get it.  So it is great to see someone else who knows Goose the person and not just the bird!!

I don't know that we really use our pets as a typical school lesson but I would say they are learning something new about animals through them all the time :)
