In honour of National love your pet day – here are my top 10 pets i wish I owned!
- Hedwig (Harry Potter)
Hedwig was more then a pet which is evident by the fact I cried my eyes out when she died. She was Harry’s companion, his only contact to the wizarding world during the summer. She was his friend. She sent and delivered post and always knew how to find Harry. For Example at the beginning of Harry Potter and Prioner of Azkaban – She left the Durselys to deliver a birthday gift to Heromine who was on holiday at the time in France and knew to come back to find Harry at the Leaky Cauldron. Amazing! In fact as mentioned by Harry himself she never failed to deliver a package or letter for him. I could go on and on about how terrible the films are (the films are far more superior) but one thing change they got right was Hedwig’s death in the book she was in her cage when she was struck by a killing spell but in the film she sweeps into protect Harry and gets struck by the killing spell which i think was a more fitting ending to a pet that has been by Harry’s side from the beginning.
2. Salem (Sabrina the Teenage Witch)
So i guess he was technically a evil wizard forced to be a cat for 100 years as punishment so he is unlike some other pets on this list – the fact that he can speak is part of the reason he is so awesome. He is witty and sarcastic and steals every scene.
3. Abu (Aladdin)
Abu is more then a pet he is really Aladdin’s sidekick. He helps Aladdin steal food and always takes more then he needs yet he is also generous as seen in the film where he gives some of the food to some hungry children. He will literally do anything for Aladdin how many friends do you know that will turn into an elephant for you? He really went above and beyond!
4. Pikachu (Pokemon)
Some people may argue other Pokemons would make better pets. Audino who is very caring or Rapidash who could get you to places really fast or even Sylveon who’s power is to make everyone around them positive. So why Pikachu? In fact it is odd that a Pikachu was chosen as the poster Pokemon back in the day because as a Pokemon there are probably better ones. But the bond between Ash and his Pikachu which is very rare in the Pokemon world makes me want to have one. Pikachus have very soft fur and everyone loves a pet they can cuddle. They also are the only Pokemons that have their own language which I find adorable.
5. Toothless (How to Train your Dragon)
Where to start he is playful, inquisitive and intelligent. He is very protective over Hiccup and will stop at nothing to guard him from all harm. Do I need to say anymore?
6. Lassie (Lassie)
He is intelligent, loyal, brave and has save countless lives! Long Live Lassie.
7. Gromit (Wallace and Gromit)
He is a dog that can knit, read, cook, makes sure you get up on time and he even graduated from university!
8. Stich (Lilo and Stich)
An ailen that looks like a koala. Stich goes around with Lilo riding bikes and saving the world from ailens together. Love them!
9. Pascal (Tangled)
Pascal is a true and loyal friend to Rapunzel. He is constantly cheering her on. Being Rapunzel’s only companion he is very protective of her and can be highly affectionate to those who he seems worthy enough.
He helps solves mysteries do i need to say anymore? Scoobert (or scooby for short) is very loyal to his human companion Shaggy and his friends even though he is often scared of the ‘baddies’ he always lands up facing them and being a key part in helping the gang catch the ‘baddies’.
