My 1st pet, well, she was meant to be a family pet but she ended up being mine, was a Golden Retriever called Tessie. We got her when I was 12, she was gorgeous, so affectionate. She used to sit in the chair or settee with me and I'd rub her tum. We had to help her to the bridge on christmas eve, I was then 23, as she was very ill and went blind. The muscles above her eyes collapsed too. I loved her to bits. Can you remember the 1st pet you had?
