One dog, a loony Husky-Chow cross, named Juneau, who has some very serious Separation Anxiety issues.
She is a wonderful pet, loving with the kids and protective, but she is so nutty whenever anyone leaves the house. She has spent the better part of the last couple of months trying to destroy our house while we have been out.
Anyway, this was supposed to be a short answer....

One possessed cat. Her name is Patches, but we call her Boo-Boo.-- I actually call her Boo-Boo Devil Kitty. The kids are a little intimidated by her. Her greatest desire in the world is to be left the he!! alone.
The really weird thing about her is her attitude towards the kids. She doesn't want them to touch her or pay attention to her, but if one of them is crying in true distress this cat will come around and claw my heel or my wife's heel. I don't know if she is reprimanding us for being "bad" parents or if she just likes to take her stress out on us because of the noise. She's definitely a psychotic cat.

Hershey - all black half-Lab/half Retriever dog. (A big and totally lovable goof)
Princess - Cockatiel bird (A present for my daughter this past Christmas.....she already has the bird completely trained).
And a very tiny mutt dog that my daughter found half dead laying in a cornfield behind my house a couple years ago. He didn't have a collar, couldn't hardly walk and it looked like he was almost dead from starvation. We eventually brought him back to full health and my daughter named him Popcorn. He is now the most affectionate and most devoted dog that I have ever seen or owned in my whole life.

Two beagles and a cat. All three like to sleep with us. One of the dogs doesn't like it if my wife and I are too close, she likes to wiggle her way in between us and keep us apart. We have been wondering if there is a bed larger than king size.
Ok, here goes. We have a dog named Max, who is a weiner/beagle mix who thinks he is a cat most of the time. We have 7 cats. We started with two, Keke and Shadow. Then my in laws gave each of the girls one(thankyouverymuch) which brought our total to 5. Then the female got pregnant the week before she was to be spayed. We found homes for all but two. In addition to the dog and cats, we have a hamster, 2 rabbits, 7 fish and our newest addition, a pet rat the girls got for Christmas from, guess who, my in laws. Actually, I kind of like the rat. He doesn't bite and is much more even tempered than the hamster. Now all I have to do is get my wife her parrot that she wants so badly.

Your house must smell WONDERFUL.
Nothing since I moved to Santa Barbara, but my parents have a beagle and two cats. The beagle is about the smartest dog I've ever seen.
For a period of time, my parents kept the cat food outside on top of the BBQ. The beagle learned she could move the outdoor plastic tables around, jump up on the table, reach her paw up to the cat food tray, knock it off, and eat herself silly.
From there on, my parents have been unable to find a place for the cat food where, when left unattended, the beagle can't find some furniture to help her access it.

5 year old female Beagle named Babe 4 year old female Airedale Terrier named Lexie 4 year old female Dachshund mix named Lola 7 month old male "Illegal Blue" Weimeraner named Tank (he's a dark black as opposed to the standard grey)
As if that's not enough, MRS is the director of an animal shelter and we're volunteers with 2 different Airedale Terrier rescue groups and were volunteers with a Dachshund rescue group until we grew concerned over the group's ethics and legal standing, so we also have:
7 year old female foster Airedale named Fergie 5 year old male foster Dachshund named Gunner (he lost the ability to move his rear legs last October and now has a wheelchair) 6 year old female foster Dachshund named Missy 4 year old female foster Border Collie mix named Sinead
Yes, that's 8 dogs and I know I'm an idiot. The house doesn't smell bad, but we go through cleaning supplies and incense like the proverbial hot knife through butter.

Technically i only have one cat, a black one called Marley, but the white/ginger cat from a few houses down lives in my house so much that we started feeding it. After a few months of this we found out its name is Leroy. Yup.

I've read it twice as an adult, once within recent months and found parts of the book pretty disturbing for adults and kids---one part in particular really stands out. Lowry paints a pretty bleak picture of a future/alternate society.
