I have had 2.  One when I was younger at home, and one now.

We had three miniature schnauzers when I was growing up.  In 2007, we adopted a rescued greyhound.  It died last year.  I won't have another dog.

So in total: 4 dogs

Hmm.. let me see.

There was Sheena, the Gordon Setter my parents adopted when I was a baby.  She died when we were both 12.

Then came Spike, a lab/husky X.  He died last March at the age of 13.

Then my parents got Sasha, another lab X to be a buddy for Spike.  She's 13 now and still lives with my parents.

My ex and I got Echo and Biscuit when we lived in British Columiba.  Echo is another lab X that looks like a cross between Spike and Sasha.  The vet thought she was their puppy.  She'll be 5 this year and Biscuit, a rottie/GSD X I think is about 7.  I had to give him away.  We moved back in with my parents and Biscuit killed one of the cats :(  He went to a great family with another dog...and no cats.

Echo lives with my parents and is Sasha's companion.

And for the past 2 years my wonderful boyfriend and I have had Bailey, a Maltese X.  He's a bit of a spoiled brat.

So 6 dogs.  A home doesn't feel like a home without a dog.

 We got one when I was 2, then we got another one when I was 13.  When I was 19, my boyfriend at the time and I got two.  Now my husband and I have one.

So, 5.

I have had 7 dogs..... When I was very little, we had a black lab named Champ. After he passed, my parents got me a Lhaso named Noel.... then as an adult, I had my precious American Eskimo Sierra and Reilly, a Springer Spaniel.... Sierra passed on from cancer 3 years ago and Reilly lives with my folks because she is not kid friendly.... DH and I have Hera (aussie/lab/airdale mix) and Thor (lab/pitt/shar-pei mix)..... we had another dog, a Springer who also was not kid friendly (he bit Liam twice!) He went to a new home before Molly was born.

We had a family dog when I was a kid, a female Dalmatian named Tia. As an adult I owned a female Chihuahua named Snuffy and I currently own a male Maltese/Shih Tzu named Burt Reynolds ;)
