We always had a pet of some sort when I was growing up. I don't think I can remember all of them, but I do remember Tiny the dog. She was a stray that we adopted - a long-haired terrier of some sort. I don't remember that Tiny was particularly a barker, but Mrs. Milligan obviously did because eventually we had to have Tiny put down because Etta complained about her barking.
This was Ruff when she was older and a bit bigger.
We also had a rosella (I think) in the aviary beside the playhouse. And at various times we had budgies.
