My first pet was a dwarf hamster when I was 17. Those things smell and are very noisy.
My family had a dog already when I was born. Grundy. She was a pointer/Dalmatian mix. Not exactly the poster-child of breed mixes for a family dog! Lol. She HATED everyone but me....apparently I was her 'puppy' (even though I had an older brother and my parents had the dog before he joined the family....I was still her baby). I remember I was the only kid around allowed to take my dog anywhere I wanted for walks at only 3/4 years old....because NO ONE would come anywhere near her. She was awesome.....she's been gone for 31+ years already and I still really miss her,
I remember having two cats when I was a young child. An orange one named tangerine, my mom said I called her tan-rah-nee-nee and a gray one named angel.
I can't recall when my parents got me "my own" pet. I was always bringing strays home, lol.
We always had dogs when I was a kid. All different breeds from Scottish Terriers to a Black Lab & Akita's. I also got a box turtle when I was in 5th grade & I still have him! I've had him for 20 years & his name is Sebastion. Now as an adult my first pet was a mixed breed dog that I rescued named Dingo & I just got a kitten. I'm a vet tech so having pets is just part of my life.
when i was 9 we got some parakeets from WoolWorths, it got old quick, we took them back and got goldfish instead.
We had a dog named Mr Bo Jangles that was a Border Collie that my parents found on the side of the highway.
